Immunology of Infectious Diseases MSc

University rating (4)

The accessibility overall is what makes this a great place to study. We have access to the expertise of some the world's top professionals in the field of various disciplines such as public health and neglected tropical diseases. The location of the school is also in Central London and a short walk to the British Museum. It has a very family atmosphere with professors that actually care about your well-being. Although, it may be easy to miss LSHTM if not attentive when you are walking in the area because it is a smaller school and may be overshadowed by the UCL campus just a few minute walk away.

LSHTM exceeded my expectations. I came here for an educational opportunity and a degree, and I am gaining way more. Super interesting classmates, wonderful people, engaging curriculum, being taught by world-leading experts in the field, and so much more.

Nutrition for Global Health MSc

University rating (5)

LSHTM is a great place to study. It is such an international school, making it an incredible experience. The staff are often leaders in their field and are really supportive and helpful. The facilities are very good, especially with COVID-19 as most lectures are now livestreamed for those who cannot join in person on the day. There are lots of study spaces throughout the building. The only improvement would be if there were clubs and societies. However, there are centres that students can get involved in and plenty of academic events to attend. The workload is tough but it is a great learning experience and there are student supports in place if it becomes too much. Overall, I can't recommend LSHTM highly enough!

The great things about LSHTM are its reputation, opportunities for networking and cool location. The library could remain open for longer.

Public Health MSc (Health Economics Stream)

University rating (4)

LSHTM is an excellent school made up of simply amazing students. I’ve learned so much since starting the course here, from both my classes and my fellow students. The student body is diverse in background, and the classes are varied and give plenty of practical knowledge and experience to prepare you for the job market. Highly recommend LSHTM to anyone looking for a Masters in Public Health!

Public Health MSc

University rating (4)

I love LSHTM. My experience is a bit different because I am a part time student. London is a great place to be a student because there is always something to do outside of campus but downsides being expensive. The location of LSHTM is great, right in the centre of London, UCL is close, senate house is across the road so you can get a nice study session in the library. There are also loads of study spaces at the school itself. There are loads of parks close as well so it’s nice to go there when the weather is nice for a break during the day. Only downsides is we don’t have a dedicated students Union but nonetheless there are still ways to socialise, get into uni life and get support if needed.

Tell us about your overall university experience so far.

The university experience has been great - very different to a typical undergraduate experience but it feels as though we are at a centre of exciting research and surrounded by likeminded, intelligent and approachable people. It's been one of the best years of my life so far.
