Looking further into the course I see that there is an option following second and third year to take either one or two years out of the BVMS programme and study an additional degree.
Can someone highlight to me what courses are usually taken and the purpose of this offering?

I'm no expert but I imagine the purpose would vary between individuals choosing to intercalate, probably commonly to pursue different non-vet interests, or to help specialise into one route, or they want a short break from vet med without being out of education. The courses again could vary, I imagine a lot would be related to vet med in some way like biology/chemistry based subjects, but could be something different. Liverpool has a veterinary conservation course for intercalating vet students for example, and that may help students who may want to go into exotics etc in the future. At Cambridge you have to do an intercalated year, as such the vet med course is always advertised as 6 years.

That is brilliant information, thank you!

Look at each school's website. They have a list of accepted degrees for intercalating. I know that Surrey has pathology as a choice, and Bristol zoology, but normally there are at least five or six choices available for each school that allows or encourages an intercalation.
