Global opportunities for current students

Studying or working abroad is an exciting and rewarding experience that adds an international element to your degree scheme. At the University of Bristol, the Global Opportunities Team helps facilitate over 600 international placements each year.  

If you are interested in studying or working abroad as part of your degree scheme, have a look at the pages below to see what options are offered by your department.  If your department does not currently offer an international placement as part of your degree, there are a plethora of summer programmes, a few of which are listed on our Overseas summer placements page. 

Global Opportunities Fair, Tuesday 17 October

If you are interested in studying, working or volunteering abroad, the Global Opportunities Fair is the perfect way to find out more about the options open to you. At the fair you can:
  • Talk to fellow Bristol students who have returned from their own year abroad, and pick up brochures from our partner universities
  • Attend information sessions on study in specific regions
  • Meet leading international internship providers and take part in careers focused sessions on international work opportunities 
  • Learn about Bristol's new global short term programmes and volunteering overseas via student societies 
The Global Opportunities Fair is held on Tuesday 17 October, 12-3pm in the Anson Rooms (Richmond Building).
