Intercalating Programmes

‘Intercalation’ is defined as the circumstance in which a student takes up the opportunity to pause his or her study on a registered programme to study for a degree in a different programme of study. The student resumes, as normal, on their registered programme following the intercalation. The University's policy on intercalation can be found in the Regulations and Code of Practice for Taught Programmes.

Only students registered at the University of Bristol on the following programmes are eligible to intercalate:

  • Dentistry (BDS)
  • Medicine (MBChB)
  • Veterinary Science (BVSc)

A list of intercalating degrees can be found on the following page.

Any programme, which wishes to start to accept intercalating students, should follow the normal procedure for a change to a programme that requires approval at the University level, explicitly stating the rationale for accepting intercalating students in the approval documentation.
