You will be unable to intercalate in the 2022-23 academic year if you have not notified the School by this date (this is due to the increase in the numbers of students wishing to intercalate and the need to ensure we can accommodate returning students on clinical placements).

Register your intention to intercalate during 2022-2023This form will be used for administrative purposes to ensure that we have a record of all students who are intercalating and to ensure the correct paperwork has been completed.

You will need to meet with an Associate Director of Student Affairs (ADSA) to discuss your intercalation plans and to complete a leave of absence form. You must make this appointment before you apply and by no later than Friday 29 April 2022.
