About BSc Geography with Study Abroad

This four-year course has the same basic structure as the BSc Geography but you will spend your third year studying geography and other subjects in English at a university abroad. Few other British universities offer such a course.

Your third year studies abroad will be arranged on an individual basis, but you will take the equivalent of 120 credits.

Currently, we have exchange agreements with partner universities in the USA, Canada, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong. Visit our Global Opportunities website for more information about where you can study abroad.

You will return to university in Bristol for the final year of your degree.
