PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The University of Bristol is a prominent English research university which was established in the early twentieth century. Each year, the University welcomes students from over 150 different countries, who make up roughly 15% of the overall student population.

UK - BristolEnglish universities offer three or four year undergraduate degree programs.  The three year program (“course” in British terms) is usually referred to simply as a bachelor’s degree course. Four year degree courses, “honors” degrees, are designed to prepare the student for graduate study.

During the three or four years of study for the undergraduate degree, a British student takes courses (“modules” or “units”) in his or her field of study. “General education,” as it is understood in the United States is not known in the British degree structure. Students are only permitted to enroll in courses/modules in the area of study that the student is selected for, with one elective allowed per term.
 
Please note that space is very limited in this program and there are regularly more applicants than placements available. Students applying to this program should select a second choice program in the UK that also offers their area of study, in the event that they are not selected for participation in their first choice. The alternate program(s) should be noted on the “UK Second Choice Questionnaire” which can be found in the CSU IP application.  

For more information about the academic program, students may refer to the CSU IP Academic Bulletin. Note that course offerings are subject to change and may not be offered during the year of intended study.
