University of Leeds

Intercalation is a great way to explore a new subject area, enhance your employability, and broaden your perspective. If you’re studying medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine or a related subject our intercalation courses will make the ideal supplement for your degree.

You’ll explore the complex ethical dilemmas arising from working in medicine and healthcare, and gain the skills you need to respond quickly and effectively.

You’ll study a range of issues including consent, responsibility, abortion, euthanasia, patient rights, and genetic enhancement. You’ll also learn alongside non-intercalation students including professionals in a range of fields, allowing you to benefit from their insights and experiences.

If you’re looking to gain a more advanced qualification, this course is also available as a Masters degree. The courses share taught content, but the Masters course students also complete an independent research dissertation.
