    Nope, most of the intercalated degrees preys on the fact that a lot of the material covered in the extra degree is already part of the pre-clinical medical curriculum.

    Ok then. It will be quite interesting if there would be inercalated degrees for non-medicine courses, as we could do another subject that is not related to our normal 3 year degree. In addition, we could be interested in another field of study. :p:

    Would you be able to get a degree classificiation in one year in a subject you have never done before? :confused: If you could, then you're much more clever than i've ever given you credit for!

    if there's one subject your very interested in that's got nothing at all to do with your degree course ... uh, what about taking evening classes?

    hang on i think UCL Medicine does this if what im thinking is correct. You do the Medicine MBBS and at the same time you do a BSc in like neuroscience?

    If so im pretty sure UCL do this as i was looking through their prospectus the other nite.....

    UCL are great--the intercalated Bsc is compulsory-meaning that the course is 6 years-you don't do MBBS and Bsc at the same time-Bsc has a year of its own (after year 2/3)
    The thing i like about UCL is you can do the Bsc in alternative things like psychology or medical anthropology.

    If your clever enough you can apply for the intercalated Phd in year--so in years 8 its 'YOURNAME Bsc MBBS Phd'--not bad ehy?

    At UCL if you've done a degree in totally different field, if you have BBC A Levels in chem, bio and something else i think it says in the prospectus that you can apply for Medicine (might have to double check that one) but im sure it said so.

    Im not going to UCL for Medicine, hopefully CS.
