About BSc Social Policy with Study Abroad

The Social Policy with Study Abroad degree gives you the opportunity to critically analyse contemporary issues, such as inequality, unemployment and crime. It takes an international and comparative perspective in many units, ensuring that social policy is considered in its global context.

The programme is identical to the three-year BSc Social Policy except, at the end of year two, you will have the opportunity to study overseas at one of our partner institutions. You will be able to take units related to social policy or units from the broader social sciences, arts and humanities. For example, in Sweden you may choose to study the Swedish and Swedes unit, or at City University Hong Kong you have the option of taking a unit in Mandarin. You will return to Bristol for your fourth and final year.
