Your 2nd Q (about the differences between integarated course and traditional) can be found here:-
As for the specific situation at Leeds, my approach would be to telephone the Medical School, and speak to the Course Co-ordinator, or the Dean's secretary; if she does not know, she can find out for you.
Alternatively, if you have some time, you may wait to get a response here from a current or recent past medic from Leeds (sorry I can't help: I trained at Guys Hospital in London, and I am less of a spring chicken than you [courses were all traditional 15 years ago]!!)

btw, CBL and PBL and lecture-based are methods used to teach the course material; you cannot compare those to "traditional" because traditional refers to the course structure i.e. that you learn anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pharmacology, genetics, psychology, histology, cytology, medical physics, etc. (so-called basic medical sciences[BMS]) earlier in the course, and clinical subjects (medicine [cardiology, respiratory medicine, nephrology, gastroenterology, rheamatology, etc.] and surgery [orthopaedics, urology, cardiothoracic surgery, neurosurgery, etc.]) in the later years [ALL SUBJECT BY SUBJECT], whereas in an integrated course you are taught by systems of the body (cardiovascular system, respiratory system, gastrointestinal system, genitourinary system, etc.) and will be taught the BMS of each of those systems together with the clinical subjects [and pathology] SYSTEM BY SYSTEM.
Hope this helps!
