The academic session is spent at a foreign higher education institution which has a bilateral student exchange agreement with the University of Bristol, taking a range of mechanical engineering topics and related studies. These are negotiated on an individual basis, set out in a formal learning agreement, and approved by the home and receiving departments. Students will take lectures and laboratory classes as part of a normal student group, broadly equivalent to those taken in Year 3 in Bristol. For H301 students this is usually in either a French or German-speaking country. Students must take an individual/link-paired project equivalent to that offered by Bristol in Year 3.

Intended learning outcomes

1. Students will have gained 120 Bristol credit points (or approved equivalent) at an appropriate level. All key learning objectives laid out in the 3rd year core unit’s unit descriptions should be achieved. Note that those not achieved should be covered in the 4th year.

2. Students will have satisfied the departmental progression requirements to the 4th year.

3. Students will have developed their communication team working and learning skills while living as a student engineer in a foreign environment for a complete academic year.
