UCL School of Life and Medical Sciences


Intercalated BSc programmes at UCL (iBSc)

UCL offers a limited number of iBSc places to external students who are currently studying at a UK medical school.

An iBSc allows current medical students to pursue an individual subject, of their choice, in considerable depth. The iBSc is suitable for students who have successfully completed 2 years of an undergraduate medical programme.

Our iBScs expose students to the ground-breaking research that makes UCL the global leaders in areas from cardiovascular sciences to medical anthropology and global health.

The iBSc projects offered have enabled many previous students to be named as authors on research publications and some have been invited to present their findings at UK and global conferences.
