London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

This programme aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills to enable them to address public health challenges through research and practice. It covers the whole breadth of public health, encompassing low-, middle- and high-income countries. It reflects local, national and international public health agendas, and provides the opportunity to explore public health issues in depth with academics, researchers and practitioners. After a series of compulsory core modules, students will be able to focus on a specialised stream of study, including the option to follow a general public health programme.

Funding opportunities can be found on the LSHTM website.
