UCL Medical School


Year 3 (iBSc Year)

The iBSc year allows students to pursue an individual subject, of their choice, in considerable depth, with a strong emphasis on undertaking an extended research study. Active engagement with UCL’s connected curriculum means that students are encouraged to integrate this research intensive year into their ongoing medical studies and across all modules taken during the year.

The multi-faculty, multi-disciplinary structure of UCL means that we are in a strong position to offer a wide range of degree programmes of high academic standing (currently 18 programmes but this is subject to change). Detailed information about the available Integrated BSc programmes is made available to students during their second MBBS year.

Places are offered to UCL Medical Students through an allocation process which is managed by the Medical School as set out on the iBSc Moodle Course. 

A small number of IBSc programmes additionally offer places to external medical students through an application process which is managed by the relevant IBSc department.  Programmes which are known to offer places to external students are listed below and external students should visit the departmental webpages or email the named contact.
