The three investigators carried out the interviews, where they have kept on conducting interviews until data saturation was reached. On the first occasion and due to the imposed quarantine, 17 interviews were carried out through facetime while 3 of the students were accessible to take part in face-to-face interviews while observing the required measures for physical distancing and infection prevention and control. On the second occasion, 20 interviews with the same students that have previously participated in the semi-structured interviews have been conducted where one on one interviews have taken place in a classroom at the university. A suitable timing for the interviews was agreed upon with each individual especially in light of their packed academic schedules, in order for them to be available and to provide reliable accounts of their experiences. The researchers alternated in conducting the interviews in order to avoid a moderator’s dominance from occurring. Thus, during quarantine the researchers have asked the students: “How do you describe your experience as a university student in quarantine?”, “How is quarantine affecting your learning experience?”, “What are the sources of stress you are facing during quarantine and how are you dealing with them?” After quarantine the researchers asked one question, “What are the sources of stress you are currently facing and were any of the previous stressors relieved?”
