Study abroad in a foreign language
As part of a four-year degree programme
If you want to study abroad for a full year in a foreign language – and you are not studying a modern language degree – your department will generally require you to be registered on a ‘Study in Continental Europe’ degree path. You will need to meet the following requirements:
- have at least a GCSE or equivalent qualification in that language. Some departments require you to have at least an A-Level or equivalent qualification.
- continue your foreign language study at Bristol during your first and second year at Bristol (through University-Wide Language Programme open units)
- if you are a native speaker in the language of your host university, please get in contact with us
As part of a three-year degree programme*
If your department has the option to do a semester abroad and you wish to do this in a foreign language, you will need an A-level or equivalent qualification in that language (or approval from your department). You will need to arrange a language assessment as close as possible to the start of your first year. To do this, contact us.
*Please note this option applies only to students studying in the following departments: Archaeology, Anthropology, Classics, English Literature, History of Art, History, Politics, Sociology, Religion & Theology.
