Applying for an intercalated degree

Find out how to apply for one of our intercalated Masters or undergraduate degrees.

How to apply

Step 1: Inform your Medicine programme

You will need to let your Medical School know of your intention to take an intercalation year.

Each Medical School has their own process and deadline for this, so please check with your Medical School. You may be required to notify your Medical School of your chosen programme by a specified deadline.

Step 2: Apply to your chosen programme of study

You must apply to your intercalating programme through the normal admissions process for your chosen programme.

This is separate to and in addition to applying to your Medical School for your leave of absence from your MBBS programme.

For MSc programmes:

Please visit your programme, which will take you to apply for that programme on the University of York website. The deadline for postgraduate programmes is 31 July 2022.

For BSc programmes:

Complete the Intercalated BSc (Hons) Medical Science online application form.

Step 3: Apply for funding

We encourage intercalating applicants to explore funding for intercalated degrees to see if they are eligible. The application closing dates for funding are usually earlier in the academic year than the programme application closing dates.
