About BSc Economics and Accounting with Study Abroad

Studying abroad is an exciting and rewarding experience that enhances the international dimension of your degree. On the Study Abroad course your first and second years will be the same as for the three-year BSc Economics and Accounting but your third year will be spent studying modules in economics and accounting overseas, before returning to Bristol for your final year.

In previous years, students on their third year abroad have studied modules including Business Strategy at Copenhagen Business School and International Financial Institutions and Markets at the University of Adelaide.

To join the programme you will apply initially for our BSc Economics and Accounting. Once you have joined us you can register an interest 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 we will grant the opportunities to the best applicants based on your first year examination results and your personal statement.
