We are hosting 2 online intercalated fairs on December 2nd 2020 and January 6th 2021, where you can meet intercalated programme leads and ask questions about individual programmes.  If you are a Leeds student, you will be able to access these via Minerva.  If you are an external student, please contact to be provided with a guest link. 

Please see main intercalation page for the schedule for the fairs.

If you are a Leeds MBChB student who is considering intercalating at another University, you will require permission from the School to intercalate.  Please fill out this request for permission form. You need to do this for each course you require permission for.

If you require references, please note only a generic reference confirming good academic standing can be provided. This can be requested by emailing  If more detailed information about your academic performance is required, it is your responsibility to identify an academic staff member who knows you well and can comment appropriately.
