Innovation and Entrepreneurship study guide 2023/24

Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Solving Global Problems at Bristol

Innovation is the application of creative solutions to real-world problems - taken all the way to delivery.

Our Understanding Global Problems unit uses data to analyse key themes such as the climate, inequality and the economy.

Unit structure

The Centre offers 2 units that are based in the spring semester, so these will only be available for students studying at Bristol during that time.

Unit levels

The Centre offers 2 units from year 1 (level C/4). Other units are unavailable to students outside the Centre.

Unit codes

The Centre for Innovation offers two units from Year 1 which both begin with 'UNIV'.

For more information about each unit, check the University's unit catalogue for 2023/24. Applicants on all study abroad programmes must review the unit details on the catalogue before listing unit choices on their application form. This includes checking the format of assessment for each unit. The unit catalogue for 2023/24 is updated by April 2023.

Your unit choices cannot be guaranteed. Some units may not have capacity to accommodate all of the unit requests we receive. Registration on a unit also depends on whether you meet the pre-requisite conditions through prior study at your home university.
