From education to employment

Bristol University welcomes Government announcement on guidance for the Christmas period

As highlighted in the announcement, because the current four-week national lockdown is being considered as a sufficient form of quarantine period, the Government’s position is that provided they are not self-isolating students who wish to do so will be able to move from their university address to another address such as a family home between 3-9 December.

We will be assessing the guidance and will share further details as to what this means for our students – including those on programmes with research, practical or professional accreditation requirements – as soon as possible.  As always, we will support those students who remain on campus throughout the Christmas period. 

We also welcome the opportunity to undertake widespread testing for our student community on campus as part of the proposed mass testing approach. We are awaiting more information about whether this opportunity will be offered to us and if it is, we will do all we can to ensure this is deliverable once it has been confirmed with Government how this might best be achieved.
