Intercalation Opportunities

Intercalation means taking a year out of your main programme of undergraduate studies to study for an additional degree.

Intercalation provides a broad perspective in the healthcare professions. At Newcastle, we offer a range of BSc, MSc, MRes, MClinEd and MA programmes. We have intercalation opportunities for both internal and external Medical and Dental students as well as external Veterinary students.

Intercalating students enter one of our modular Masters programmes. They work within a postgraduate, academically challenging environment to develop new and transferable skills that will enhance their professional development. Many of these programmes allow students to choose their own research projects in a topic that interests them and to work closely with experienced research and clinical staff during this period.

After completing an intercalating year, students resume their original studies.

How to apply

Students from other academic institutions should contact Newcastle University to ensure that we are currently accepting intercalating students for your chosen programme.

Contact details can be found in the ‘Further information’ tab of each programme page. Then apply through our online postgraduate application site for postgraduate programmes, or email the School of Biomedical, Nutritional and Sport Sciences at biomed.ugadmin@ncl.ac.uk for BSc programmes.

Current Newcastle University students should visit the LSE intercalation page for information on how to apply and funding applications or contact the Medical Student Office with any queries.
