About BSc Economics and Accounting with Study Abroad
Studying abroad is an exciting and rewarding experience that adds an international element to your degree.
To join the programme, you will initially apply for our three-year BSc Economics and Accounting. Then once you have joined us, you can register an interest to study abroad and write a personal statement explaining why you wish to go abroad and where you would like to go. If places for your chosen destination are oversubscribed, then we will grant the opportunities to the best applicants, based on your first-year examination results and the quality of your personal statement.
Your first and second years will be the same as for the three-year version of the programme; then your third year will be spent studying modules in Economics and Accounting abroad.
After that you will return here for your fourth and final year.
