While you are away

Going abroad can be the most rewarding experience of your time as a student. Enjoy your time abroad while being supported by the University of Bristol.

While you are abroad you will need to stay in touch with the University of Bristol. Contact us for help or advice to ensure that your time abroad runs as smoothly as possible and to enable you to get the most out of your experience overseas. 

Your academic department

It's important to stay in regular contact with your Study Abroad Academic Director about what classes you are taking abroad. Let them know if you need to make any changes to your classes to check whether they meet your degree requirements and to earn the right number of credits for your time abroad.

Your email

Check your University of Bristol email account regularly, as this is the address we use to contact you. Access your email using your username and password to log in. 


While you are abroad, check Blackboard for any announcements or updates. You will be enrolled onto the Global Opportunities Blackboard organisation before you go overseas. 

The Global Opportunities team

We are always here to help if you need support or advice while you are abroad. You can:

Email us: go-abroad@bristol.ac.uk
Phone us: +44 (0) 117 39 40205

Before you leave

There will be requirements associated with ending your placement.

Check with your host institution that they have all the information they need to produce a transcript for your time abroad. This may be sent to you directly or to the Global Opportunities team after you return to the UK. We need your transcript to transfer your credit and convert marks earned abroad to a University of Bristol mark.
