The Best School for Public Health

I love the School! This course has an unmatched diversity of people coming from all backgrounds and nationalities which helps you to expand your knowledge on different situations. You get to hear personal opinions and stories with respect to an issue that otherwise you only would have learnt through news ( many a times it doesn't even make it to the media). The program although extremely intense is well developed and allows you to tailor it to your interests which makes your overall profile unique. The professors are veterans of their fields and very helpful. Since the schedule is so tightly packed, the course would come to an end rather too early but it's important that you don't get overwhelmed by it and manage your time well. I made the best decision of coming to the School. Just being surrounded by like minded people who share an ardor for health that resonates with yours would only amplify your passion and make you more determined to create an impact. show less

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.
