Background: Stress has different meanings for each person. It is a part of our daily human experience, but it is associated with several different problems and outcomes, during the COVID-19 pandemic which changed many aspects of our lives, including education. It is important to explore the lecturers' stress which contributes to their effective teaching.

Methods:  This study used an online questionnaire from April to May 2022. The convenience sample included 247 lecturers in universities in Vietnam, aged 23 to 50+ years. Demographic and stress-related information was measured using the Perceived Stress Scale (PSS- 10) questionnaire. Chi-square tests were used to analyze the association between these factors and the stress level.

Results:  Most of the respondents were female (77.7%), the majority were aged from 31 to 40 years (45.7%), and most worked long hours. The survey found that 83.4% of participants had moderate levels of stress, and 8.1% and 8.5% with low and high levels of stress respectively. Findings demonstrated consistent associations among education level (p=0.025), working hours per week (p=0.00), teaching methods (p=0.036), and level of stress.

Conclusions:  The prevalence of lecturers with moderate stress levels was substantial. The changes in education had been accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic, which impacted teaching routines and the stress of lecturers. Understanding the associated factors with stress could assist in reducing levels and improving the efficiency of education.
