This research was conducted under the interpretive paradigm, qualitative approach, hermeneutic design, and descriptive level. The main objective is to conduct a qualitative analysis of scientific research formation in undergraduate students of a private university in Lima in times of pandemic. The analysis was carried out with nine participants, students in semesters IX and X who virtually attend the Scientific Research course, a transversal subject taught by a private university in Peru, which is part of the research training. The in-depth interview technique was applied, and as an instrument, a semi-structured interview guide was applied initially to six participants and subsequently to the other three, until the information saturation point was reached. Once the data were collected and analyzed, it was determined that the transition from face-to-face to virtual education originated difficulties, due to the limitations inherent to technological connectivity in their training. It is concluded that training in scientific research is weak, due to the lack of an affective relationship in student-teacher interactions.
