bristol university open units

The University’s Open Units scheme allows students on undergraduate degree programmes the opportunity to broaden their education by undertaking unit/s outside of their subject discipline. Under the scheme single honours students will normally be able to choose to undertake open unit/s of at least 20 credit points across the programme, except where this is not practicable. The year(s) of study in the programme in which a student can undertake open units will be determined by the academic school in which the degree is based.
An ‘open unit’ is a unit that is outside of the student’s subject discipline and any student can take (i.e. not have any pre- or co-requisites), subject to space and timetabling constraints.
