IH Bristol: UK Lockdown Update

Published Lynne on Monday, November 9, 2020

IH Bristol UK Lockdown

As you will have heard, the UK government has announced a second national lockdown for England which will come into effect from Thursday 5th November for 4 weeks until 2nd December 2020. After this date, the plan (at the time of writing) is to then ease restrictions and return to the ‘tiered’ system of local and regional measures. Currently, Bristol is in Tier 1, with the least amount of restrictions in place.

The important difference between this lockdown and the UK’s first lockdown in March is that schools and universities are allowed to stay open, while all hospitality and leisure businesses and non-essential shops must close.

We are therefore pleased to confirm that in line with government guidance, International House Bristol will remain open and teaching face-to-face classes during the November lockdown period

New students are welcome to join us for online and face-to-face courses – see our full range here and our COVID-19 Safety Measures & FAQs here. Should any student be required to self-isolate during their course, they will be able to join classes remotely via zoom, just as our recent new arrivals have successfully been doing over the past weeks.

Back in March, we introduced an online social programme and since then have continued to offer 2 online social activities per week together with IH Galway, Manchester & Portsmouth, allowing students even more opportunity to connect and practise their English with students all over the world. These events will continue as planned and everyone is welcome; we hope to see as many of you there as possible! You can see the full social programme calendar here and click on each event to find the sign-up link. 

Finally, you can find more details of the specific rules from the UK government website here.
Just as we have all done this year, IH Bristol will continue to adapt as necessary to the changing situation, while remaining committed to supporting our students through their studies.
