About BSc International Business Management with Study Abroad

In this four-year degree course, you will not only learn about international business, but also study internationally, spending a year at one of our partner universities overseas.

To join the course, you should first apply for our three-year BSc International Business Management. Once you have joined us, you can register your interest in studying abroad and write a personal statement explaining why you wish to go abroad and where you'd like to study. If your chosen destination is oversubscribed, we will allocate places to the best applicants, based on your first-year examination results and the quality of your personal statement.

This degree is the same as the three-year course for the first two years, then you will spend your third year abroad studying modules in business and management. You will return to Bristol for your final year.
