In your Veterinary Medicine (Intercalated) programme of Royal Veterinary College, you can study a BSc course on offer at other UK universities, or one of two tailor-made intercalated BSc courses at the RVC. These are available for intercalation for second and third year veterinary, medical and dentistry students.

  • Intercalated BSc Bioveterinary Sciences

Aimed at students with a strong interest in research, the programme allows you to develop your interests in cutting-edge scientific research and aims to equip you with a passion for biomedical research within the context of a diverse range of species, an appreciation of the fundamental principles of bioveterinary disciplines, and an understanding of the complexity of comparative biology.

  • Intercalated BSc Comparative Pathology

Experience first-hand the excitement of contemporary pathology, and its far-reaching scientific relevance. This intercalated programme will stimulate curiosity at the boundaries of research in pathology.

Pathology, the science of disease, is central to understanding and conduct of veterinary and biomedical research, clinical medicine and surgery. There is a need for veterinary scientists who are trained in pathology and pathology techniques to fulfil the ever-growing demand for such expertise arising from clinical practice, academia and industry.
