About BSc Economics and Politics with Study Abroad

What better way to pursue your interest in international relations and economics than with this four-year integrated programme, which includes spending your third year abroad at one of our partner universities overseas?

Your first and second years will be the same as for the three-year BSc Economics and Politics. You will spend your third year studying modules in economics and politics, taught in English, before returning to Bristol for your final year.

Find out more about studying abroad at Global Opportunities.

In your final year you will choose options according to what interests you the most. Half of your options must be in the discipline of economics and the other half in the discipline of politics.

You can join this programme by transfer from BSc Economics and Politics after the first year. Start off by applying to our BSc Economics and Politics through UCAS. You can apply to transfer to the 'with Study Abroad' degree after your first year. Places go to the best applicants based on examination results and a personal statement in which you explain why you wish to study abroad.
