Abstract:The coronavirus pandemic, classified by the World Health Organisation on 11 March 2020 as a global pandemic, has brought consequences for various aspects of the society, such as health care, economy and education of all countries in the world. This pandemic meant a drastic change in daily life, with the closing of borders and businesses, cancellation of events and the suspension of classes in educational institutions, all with the aim of avoiding crowds and reducing contamination with the COVID-19 virus. In the area of Higher Education, many educational institutions, to continue to provide their courses, have adopted the transition from face-to-face lessons to online learning. This study with the research question: „What impact did the change to digital education due to COVID-19 have on the study success of students in Federal Higher Education Institutions in the Southeast of Brazil?“ aims, through a mixed approach of quantitative and qualitative analysis, to analyse the impacts of the transition to digital education, focusing on aspects such as study success and learning effectiveness. The findings of this research showed a rather negative impact on the transition to digital education for higher education federal students.
