IH Bristol

Welcome to
IH Bristol

Named “Best place to live in the UK 2017” by The Sunday Times Magazine, Bristol is a friendly, safe, attractive city with a long and colourful history. With a population of 500,000, it’s the cultural and commercial capital of the South West. It’s home to a diverse community of artists, musicians, media, financial and high tech companies. Our two centres are located in Clifton – one of Bristol’s most popular and elegant areas, which is also home to Bristol University. Mainly residential, Clifton also has a huge variety of shops and restaurants. It’s a safe and friendly environment and there’s a definite “student vibe” in the air.

Why Choose IH?


We have capacity for over 100 students, spread across nine classrooms, so as well as offering programmes for individuals, we can also accommodate groups throughout the year. All students can use our free study room. It’s available every afternoon after classes from Monday to Thursday and includes a tutor on hand to guide you.


All our students can use our e-learning programme from the time they enrol with us until three months after the end of their course. This blended course helps students to make greater progress and to track their improvements while they are studying.


Available via our website and phone app, there are hundreds of free exercises to practise your grammar, vocabulary and use of phrases, or answer questions as they will be presented in the Cambridge ESOL exams. You won’t find these anywhere else.
