BSc Intercalated Psychology
This degree is specifically designed for medical or dental students wishing to extend their experience and qualifications by taking a year out to study Psychology. Students complete five modules over the course of an academic year. This degree path would typically be taken after second or third year.
- You will have the opportunity to study a new subject which is complementary to your primary degree and conduct a piece of research that you are passionate about
- You will gain new skills in term of psychological research methods, theory and applications
- You will receive an iBSc (intercalated Bachelors of Science) in one year
- It will give you a competitive advantage in the job market – particularly for those interested in psychiatry, paediatrics, gerontology, oncology or neurology
- A change is as good as a rest! A year studying Psychology can mean returning to your course mentally refreshed and excited to continue with your medical/dentistry training
- You will have opportunities to participate in cutting edge research, supported by state of the art laboratories and equipment which include: 128 channel EEG systems; a VR system and whole body motion capture; eye movement tracking systems; transmagnetic stimulation; and a comprehensive test collection.

"Considering a career in Psychiatry, I jumped at the opportunity to do the BSc Intercalated Psychology degree. I would highly encourage anyone to take the leap - I gained so much from my year, not only in new skills and knowledge, but also in life experience and expanded ways of thinking."Zarah Fleming
