Why study at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine?

One of the things that attracted me to the School was the excellence of the research, the fact that they’re doing so much fantastic quality work that makes a impact on people’s lives throughout the world. I would describe the student body as being very eclectic, very diverse. I think everyone who applied to the School and got into the School is very excited to just learn It is also a nice balance between medical professionals and people who come from non-medical backgrounds like myself. And so I don’t feel out of place at all. I chose to study at the School because I think LSHTM is the best institution in the world to study public health and health economics Somedays you’ll just have some of the most world famous lecturers coming who give you a talk and then the next day you’ll have a
sex worker who works down the road come in and give you
a discussion, so you get the varying view points from people who are the most respected people in the world, to people whose voices rarely get heard. I never used to really like going to class at university, but now I don’t want to miss a class. What I remember most about my time at the School would be the friendships I have made, the networks I have gained and the interactions I have had with the primary movers and shakers in global health. The most memorable thing I will take
away from the School would be the friends that I’ve made basically and the connections that I have, and I think you might not see them a month or two but I think you’ll see them in 3 or 5 years down the road when we’re all doing international development work. So it’s really been like a dream come true actually. People, friends, excellence… Just amazing tutors amazing supervisors, course directors.. Everybody’s just driven by passion. I think that’s the one thing that flames the fire within me, their passion is just contagious…
