This study attempted to examine the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on international students in a situation where COVID-19 is intensifying around the world. Especially with the awareness that it may work differently depending on gender, the study performed the comparison and analysis with a focus on the gender differences. The research results can be summarized as follows. The level of depression was higher in women than in men. Based on the previous studies showing that women may be relatively more vulnerable to emotional problems than men, it was consistent with the argument that this problem would intensify due to the situational specificity of COVID-19. In addition, women were found to experience greater adaptation stress than men. Women experiencing emotional difficulties had relatively high stress in their adaptation to their life of studying abroad. This led to a difference between men and women in the level of satisfaction with life of studying abroad. Compared to men, women's satisfaction with life of studying abroad was found to be lower. Based on the findings, this study suggests that emotional health professionals should work to support international students considering their different characteristics and circumstances.
