A person who is well-motivated and enthusiastic achieves better academic results and is more engaged. Emotions, personality, environment and the prevailing atmosphere all influence the student’s attitude towards learning and, consequently, his motivation process. However, it turns out that motivation depends on many factors, also on the form of learning. The aim of this paper is to present the results of a study on whether and how distance learning has affected students’ motivation to learn, and how the perception of this form of learning has changed after returning to full-time and/or hybrid learning. The survey research method used for the study was the CAWI technique. The study population consisted of 415 respondents – university students. The research was conducted in December 2022, when the students returned to study within the walls of the university after one and a half years of remote learning. The sample selection was random. The results of the study clearly show a significant increase in motivation after returning to in-person learning. The mere change in course format and environment from home back to the walls of the university contributed to a large increase in motivation and engagement.
