LSHTM is an amazing place to study

I have had a marvellous experience studying at LSHTM. The teaching staff here are very personable and friendly. I especially enjoy the opportunity to look at parasites and insects down a microscope. The lectures and practicals are always very high quality.

Being taught by excellent lecturers and leading researchers, having exposure to a multicultural environment, using the world-class library and working with highly academic and friendly supervisors have made my time at the School incredibly rewarding. show less
