  • Teaching and project supervision - Delivered by world leaders in biomedical research
  • Opportunities to publish - Many students have obtained publications as a result of their BSc project and some have gone on to present their research at conferences

BSc Pathways

The intercalated BSc programme currently offers 17 different pathways or specialities. Explore the links below for further information on each pathway:

Selection process

Selection is based on three supporting documents of equal weighting:

  • Academic transcript covering your marks (from university) up to and including the 2023-24 academic year. There is no official cut-off for academic performance but students who are accepted onto our courses are generally on track to achieve a 2.1 or higher.
  • One academic reference from a member of staff at your university. You will be asked to provide the contact details of your referee in your application form. Imperial will then email your referee  to request a reference. It is your responsibility to make sure your referee submits your reference by the application deadline.
  • A personal statement explaining why you have chosen to apply for a particular BSc, why you think you should be selected for it, how the BSc relates to your interests in medical science and future career goals.


The application process for 2024-25 entry is now closed. However, some of our BSc courses are still open for late applications. Please find further information at the top of this page.

Students are asked to apply for their preferred course, but also indicate up to three other intercalated BSc options If you do not get a place for your preferred course, you will be considered for your other options.
