Description

20 credit point unit to record student's time and mark studying abroad.

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 Politics or Sociology 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; and
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 be expected to select units of study at a level equivalent to University of Bristol Level I. 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.

Resources

If this unit has a Resource List, you will normally find a link to it in the Blackboard area for the unit. Sometimes there will be a separate link for each weekly topic.

If you are unable to access a list through Blackboard, you can also find it via the Resource Lists homepage. Search for the list by the unit name or code (e.g. SPAI20008).
