About BSc Economics with Study Abroad

This degree extends our three-year BSc Economics to four years, with your third year spent studying economics in English at a university abroad before returning to Bristol for your final year. It combines the challenging, broad academic content of our economics degrees with an overseas dimension that reflects the international nature of the economy.

Years one and two cover underpinning material in economics and econometrics, and you also have the option to choose modules in accounting, business law, finance, management and a variety of units from across the University. You may choose to take a language module in the language of your third-year host country.

You will spend year three studying modules in economics at a partner institution overseas, taught in English. At the time of writing we have links with universities in continental Europe, Australia, Korea and Singapore. Visit our Global Opportunities website for more information about where you can study.

To join this degree you will initially apply to BSc Economics and during your first year put your name forward for consideration for the four-year course. Allocation of places is merit-based, depending on your first year examination results.
