About BSc Economics and Finance with Study Abroad

This exciting four-year course gives you the opportunity to gain an overseas education and obtain new cultural perspectives, helping to make you more attractive to future employers in an increasingly international recruitment market.

Your first two years will be the same as for BSc Economics and Finance. You will spend your third year abroad studying modules in economics and finance, taught in English, before returning to Bristol for your final year. For example you may study modules such as 'Business Negotiations' at Yonsei in South Korea; 'International Financial Institutions and Markets' at the University of Adelaide in Australia; 'Place Branding: Nations, Regions and Cities' at Copenhagen Business School; or 'Urban Economics' at the National University of Singapore.

Apply to our BSc Economics and Finance degree through UCAS, then apply to transfer during your first year. Places go to the best applicants based on examination results and a personal statement in which you explain why you wish to study abroad.
