Description including Unit Aims

The year abroad is spent at an approved European University, attending teaching and assessment for approved units, of which at least 2/3 is mathematical. Further information is in the guidelines to 'Mathematics with study in continental Europe', linked to the 'Handbooks' page in Blackboard Math_Teaching.

Relation to Other Units

The year abroad for the G101 BSc programme, MATH20003 is similar, but at Level I/5 (but still taken in the third year of study).

Intended Learning Outcomes

Have a knowledge and understanding material equivalent to the Level 6 BSc Mathematics course at Bristol and be able to solve problems at this level in both English and in the language of their host university. Students will be able to cope with the challenges of living and studying in a foreign country.

Teaching Information

Variable, as set by host University

Assessment Information

Students must attend all assessment offered at the host university. Marks and credit points will be awarded in accordance with the University of Bristol guidelines on marks conversion.


If this unit has a Resource List, you will normally find a link to it in the Blackboard area for the unit. Sometimes there will be a separate link for each weekly topic.

If you are unable to access a list through Blackboard, you can also find it via the Resource Lists homepage. Search for the list by the unit name or code (e.g. MATH30026).

How much time the unit requires
Each credit equates to 10 hours of total student input. For example a 20 credit unit will take you 200 hours of study to complete. Your total learning time is made up of contact time, directed learning tasks, independent learning and assessment activity.

See the Faculty workload statement relating to this unit for more information.

The Board of Examiners will consider all cases where students have failed or not completed the assessments required for credit. The Board considers each student's outcomes across all the units which contribute to each year's programme of study. If you have self-certificated your absence from an assessment, you will normally be required to complete it the next time it runs (this is usually in the next assessment period).
The Board of Examiners will take into account any extenuating circumstances and operates within the Regulations and Code of Practice for Taught Programmes.
