University of Leicester

For the iBSc in Biomedical Science, you join the final year of one of our Biological Sciences degrees, choosing six modules from a wide range of topics to broaden your knowledge in areas such as genetics, physiology, biochemistry or microbiology. You will also carry out a research project.

Entry requirements

Applications from external students who wish to intercalate at the University of Leicester will be considered, but only a limited number of places on a selection of the BSc courses and research projects in the College of Life Sciences will be available to external students.

With the approval of the Intercalated Degrees Committee, students registered for an undergraduate medical degree at a UK Medical School may intercalate one year of additional study leading to the BSc Honours Degree in the College of Life Sciences.  The additional year of study should normally be taken after completion of the second or third year of their course.  Students who have not passed the examinations for the parts of their medical degree course that they have taken at their institution will not be given permission to take the BSc Degree.  An academic reference from the relevant institution, a transcript of all marks achieved and a letter giving permission is also required.
