This is usually after the intermediate/pre-clinical phase of study but variation may exist across different Medical Schools. This programme is not a ‘top-up’ course. By undertaking this degree, you will integrate with students on the final year of the ‘BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Science’ degree and have the opportunity to work in the challenging sports and exercise environment, within first class sports science laboratories and sports facilities.
