About BSc Accounting and Finance with Study Abroad

This degree extends our three-year BSc course to four years, with your third year spent studying accounting and finance in English at a university abroad, before returning to Bristol for your final year. The course combines the challenging, broad academic content of all our accounting degrees with an overseas dimension that reflects the international nature of modern business.

To join this degree apply initially to BSc Accounting and Finance or BSc Economics and Accounting; during your first year you can then put your name forward for consideration for the'with Study Abroad' course. Allocation of places is merit based, depending on your first-year examination results.
