You may choose classes from a variety of departments or concentrate in just one or two areas.
- Some departments require full-year exchanges (e.g. Law), whilst others can only accept exchange students for a particular semester (e.g. Economics only accepts full year or Autumn term exchanges).
- Classes in Music are extremely limited, and you may not be admitted to classes within the Music Department even if you have secured academic entry to the University of Bristol.
- Spring term only: specific classes cannot be guaranteed, some departments may restrict classes to "majors-only" and in many cases Bristol won't be able to determine which classes are available until the students arrive in January.
- Students are encouraged attend Bristol for their full academic year if at all possible, or their first/Autumn semester if your academic calendar permits.

The University of Bristol is firmly established as one of the premier universities in the United Kingdom, and has a world-wide reputation for its academic achievement and research. Bristol consistently rates in the top 10 out of nearly a hundred universities in Britain and for British students it is one of the most difficult universities to gain entry to.
The City and Region
Bristol grew up around a harbour on the river Avon and is one of the most attractive large cities in England. It was founded 1000 years ago and quickly became the second city of England, a major teaching centre and an important port. Today, Bristol is a modern thriving city-effectively the capital of the West Country. It has a population of 500,000 and is situated 120 miles west of London. The city is a rich mixture of buildings of all ages and is surrounded by leafy suburbs. The city's extensive docks now serve as a focus for cultural and leisure activities, including cinemas, shops and art galleries. The city also has a lively arts scene including drama, music, ballet and opera, film and galleries and also a wide selection of cafes and restaurants offering culinary delights from around the world.
