BSc Economics and Management with Study Abroad (LN17)
A-level standard offer: AAA
A-level contextual offer: ABB
See entry requirements for full details and eligibility.
This four-year integrated economics and management degree allows you to study both disciplines to a high level. You will have the fantastic opportunity to live and study abroad for a year at one of our partner universities. The degree is the same as the three-year BSc Economics and Management until you get to year three, which you will spend abroad studying modules in economics and management. You will return to Bristol for your final year.
Your first year and half of your second year involve mandatory units which will give you a solid grounding in management and economics. This content ensures you have the depth of understanding which will enable you to explore what you find most interesting later on.
Half of your second year involves optional units, as does your entire final year. At least one third of your final year must include units in economics, and at least one third from units in management. Otherwise you are free to pursue your preferred discipline, or to select options in accounting or finance (subject to conditions). You also have the choice to complete a management dissertation.
