An intercalated degree at UEA is an additional Master's level programme that you can complete in a year away from your medical studies.

This can allow you to study a particular area of interest in greater depth, without the added pressures of the medical curriculum.

It's usually undertaken between years three and four, or between years four and five of your undergraduate study. 

The timing of the intercalation option allows sufficient time for you to return to your medical studies and prepare extensively for your final MB BS.
