Students take the equivalent of 40 credit points with a partner institution abroad, where courses are taught in English.

The precise content of this unit will vary on an individual basis dependent on the host institution the student opts to study at.

The aim of the unit is to provide a student with an opportunity to study at a leading institution outside the UK whilst also providing the cultural experience of living and studying in another country.

Intended learning outcomes

Specific learning outcomes will depend on the institution selected and the units studied. However, it is anticipated that students will also benefit from the following:

  • Experience of economics, finance and management in a wider non-UK context
  • Experience of different teaching and study methods and styles and the chance to extend knowledge beyond the units that are delivered in Bristol
  • Preparation for a career relating to international environments
  • The opportunity to broaden horizons and be immersed in a new and exciting environment.

Teaching details

Dependent on the host institution and the units selected.

Assessment Details

Assessment will clearly depend on the host institution and the units of study selected. Students will normally be expected to select units of study at a level equivalent to University of Bristol Level 6. The mark for this unit will be derived solely from the translation of the marks achieved at the host university via algorithms agreed by the University of Bristol.
