The spread of the COVID-19 pandemic has sent shockwaves across the globe as it brings many changes in life including the world of education. This pandemic has had a significant impact on the country's educational landscape. Due to the risk of COVID19, it is crucial to replace face-to-face classes with online classes. Online learning has become something that is no stranger to us since the COVID-19 pandemic hit Malaysia. However, it has raised huge challenges for the higher education sector. Therefore, this study aimed to explore student’s perspectives on the implementation of online learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. A study design using a questionnaire form via Google Form was conducted on 100 college students at Melaka International College of Science and Technology (MiCoST). The method consists of conducting a literature review, constructing a questionnaire, and distributing a survey. The findings further revealed that the COVID-19 pandemic had the greatest impact on the quality of the learning experience. The findings of the study highlight several challenges of online learning raised by most students. The challenges are insufficient and unstable Internet connection, an unconducive learning environment, inadequate opportunity to discuss with lecturers, lack of communication with classmates, lack of devices, practical courses in online learning are difficult, and require a lot of time and intensive work. By conducting this study, it will help to understand any issues related to online learning and provide effective solutions.
