About MEng Computer Science with Study Abroad
This course follows the structure of MEng Computer Science degree (G403), but gives you the opportunity to spend your third year at an English-speaking, partner university overseas.
During your year abroad, you will study computer science topics that are, as far as possible, parallel to the third year of our course at Bristol, before returning to the University of Bristol for your fourth year.
We have links with many universities including institutions in the USA, Hong Kong and Australia. Visit our Global Opportunities website for more information about where you can study abroad.
