The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine is a postgraduate and research institution specialising in public and global health. Founded in 1899, there are currently over 1,000 Master’s and research students enrolled in London, with a further 3,000 in distance learning.

The School’s global outreach is huge, with centres around the world focusing on areas such as malaria, tuberculosis, tropical epidemiology, non-communicable diseases, global mental health, mathematical modelling, evaluation of public health interventions, and maternal, reproductive, adolescent and child health.

More than 600 academic staff are based across three faculties:

The director, Professor Peter Piot, co-discovered the Ebola virus, was founding director of UNAIDS and Under Secretary-General of the United Nations.

The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine is continuing to expand and is in the process of developing a new Research Institute which will bring together the largest concentration of infectious-disease researchers in the world.

SI-UK's service is fast, reliable and efficient. Their consultants are specialists, working closely with all UK universities and, through my consultants' advice and application assistance, I was able to receive offers from my favoured universities.
