Study options

You will be based in the academic department that has an exchange agreement with your home university.

The majority of credits you take should be from the academic department where you are based, but it is also possible to take:

  • English language units to develop your academic English skills, delivered by The Centre for Academic Language and Development.
  • Units in other departments: you may choose no more than 20 credits in another department, however this is subject to availability and will usually need to be confirmed with the relevant department when you arrive in Bristol.

If you are looking to take units within the School of Civil, Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, we strongly advise that you apply for a year-long placement as many of the units in these departments are taught over the full academic year.
