The academic session is spent at a foreign higher education institution which has a bilateral student exchange agreement with the University of Bristol, taking a range of mechanical engineering topics and related studies. These are negotiated on an individual basis, set out in a formal learning agreement, and approved by the home and receiving departments. Students will take lectures and laboratory classes as part of a normal student group, broadly equivalent to those taken in Year 3 in Bristol. For H301 students this is usually in either a French or German-speaking country. Students must take an individual/link-paired project equivalent to that offered by Bristol in Year 3.
