The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) is a world-leading centre for research and postgraduate education in public and global health, with 4,000 students and more than 1,300 staff working in over 100 countries. The School was named the world’s leading research-focused graduate school in the Times Higher Education World Rankings (October 2013), and is now among the world’s top 100 universities by reputation (March 2014). 

Chevening and LSHTM

Chevening's partnership with LSHTM closely aligns with their mission to improve health and health equity in the UK and worldwide through education and the translation of knowledge into policy and practice.

Study opportunities play a key role in responding to the demands of public health professionals, clinicians, policymakers, academics and laboratory scientists for advanced and research training in the national and international medical and public health community.

The partnership will attract the next generation of public health leaders, especially in low-and-middle income countries, where the school has been a leading catalyst for public health change for more than a century. The scholarships will provide a helping hand to overseas candidates who wish to move up in their career and reach their full leadership potential in order to improve health and influence public health policy in their home countries.
