Bristol Courses – 2021 Spring

Studying abroad can be a more meaningful and invigorating learning experience than at home—both inside and outside of the classroom. You may be more curious and alert than you usually are so use this heightened energy to enhance your studies as well as your cultural and geographical explorations. You may also encounter different teaching styles and course processes; be prepared to adapt and to learn.


USAC's partnership with the University of Bristol provides you with the rich opportunity to study at one of the top 10 universities in Britain and in the top 1% of universities in the world. At Bristol you're able to choose from a wide array of academic courses from across the university to make a personalized study program that's flexible enough to work for your degree at home.
