University of Exeter Medical School


We welcome applications from medical, veterinary or dental students from across the UK to undertake an intercalation year with us.

We have a range of programmes which are available to students as intercalation courses, from Genomic Medicine and Clinical Education to Environment and Human Health. Find out more

Applicants must have completed at least two years of their course (or three years for applications to Master’s level programmes) and have permission to undertake an intercalated degree from their home institution. Upon completion of the course applicants return to their home institution.

Intercalated programmes are only available to selected students following a medical degree at the University of Exeter Medical School or another medical, veterinary or dental degree granting institution and who are taking an intercalating year during their programme of study (see University Regulations Governing Honours Degrees, Regulation 1.2, Section 5).

Admission to the programme is by agreement between the University of Exeter Medical School or other institution, the Head of the relevant academic department and the University of Exeter.

  • All applications will be considered on a case-by-case basis but normally students should be achieving at least a 2:1 and be ranked in the top 50% of their academic cohort.
  • The final decision on admissions rests with the course convenor.
  • Students may be interviewed in the course of the application process.
  • All offers made will be conditional on the student passing the academic year in which they apply.
