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.

I decided to come to the School because I was confident that studying here would be a unique opportunity for me to be exposed to the broader elements underlying public health and to find critical insight into the complex economic issues in health. 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
