About BSc Philosophy and Economics with Study Abroad

This exciting four-year programme includes a year of study at one of our partner universities overseas.

To join the programme, you will initially apply for our three-year BSc Philosophy and Economics. Once you have joined us you can register an interest to study abroad and submit 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 the quality of your personal statement.

Your first and second years will be the same as for the three-year version of the course; then your third year will be spent studying modules in philosophy and economics abroad. You will return to Bristol for your fourth and final year.
