International students

With a rich history of 125 years of world-leading research and teaching, LSHTM has built a strong and diverse international network of academics, alumni, students and partners.

Our students come from over 100 countries and cherish the chance to learn from top experts with current real-world research experience, as well as their peers who bring a wealth of skills themselves.

We believe the future of public and global health has to be built on an ongoing commitment to improving the lives of everyone in society. That’s why our students based in London and around the world are united in a collective vision: to help create a more healthy, sustainable and equitable world for everyone, because we believe our shared future depends on our shared health.
