University of Leeds
The University of Leeds is a World Top 100 University. You’ll be taught by leading scientists and clinicians who directly inform the curriculum from their new and exciting research. With state-of-the-art clinical facilities and infrastructure, we promote an environment that encourages and advances research with real-world impact. At Leeds, we want to help aspiring students tap into their potential. We are committed to attracting future leading researchers, like you.
Home to our tight-knit community of students from around the world, the Leeds campus offers a warm welcome and boasts superb extra-curricular opportunities. Along-side our stimulating academic environment, you’ll also have the chance to expand your personal interests and to sample life in a dynamic and diverse city.
Intercalating is your chance to discover what interests you both personally and professionally. It’s an opportunity to take stock, look beyond the core medical curriculum and turn your attention to specialist skills and topics. Intercalating in Sports Science in Relation to Medicine is an investment in your future career. With us, you will develop the transferable skills you need to help you complete your medical degree, and enter your chosen field.
If you have an interest in sport and exercise, this course will allow you to understand more fully the scientific foundations of sporting performace and health related exercise. You’ll study elements of biomechanics, exercise physiology, motor control and sport psychology and work alongside final year sport and exercise students.
Our medical students have enjoyed this course. They typically find it challenging, providing them with opportunities to gain experience in laboratory based skills and research training. Previous students have presented their research at student medical conferences and regional sport medicine interest groups.
Our students often comment on:
- the benefit of working in research teams to complete experimental work
- making use of the support provided to help them develop academic writing skills, and
- looking holistically at issues that relate to health and disease.
Medical students from other universities may apply for entry to intercalated undergraduate (BSc/BA) programmes of study offered at Leeds; please review individual course entry requirements.
