Coronavirus latest

The government has put in place restrictions to control the spread of Covid-19.

This means that students:

  • in BSMS and Education and Social Work have resumed in-person teaching since January.
  • on specified practical courses have resumed in-person teaching since 8 March.
  • studying any other course should not return to Sussex and should continue learning online – the Government will review this decision by the end of the Spring vacation.

You should only come to Sussex if your School contacts you.

If you have Covid-19 symptoms you must self-isolate and let us know using our symptom reporting form.
