Future of Education
Innovation is part of LSTM’s DNA and has been since our inception almost 125 years ago. For over a century, LSTM has nurtured some of the leading global health experts in their field and equipped them with the skills necessary to tackle the enormity of health challenges that face the world.
Addressing inequality in global health is complex; we need to develop the future leaders to rapidly respond to the ever-changing challenges and to provide new and innovative solutions to the big questions in global health. We are continually examining and revising our existing teaching practices so that we can explore exciting new delivery models to keep up with the changing landscape of global health and ensure that we continue to lead the way. To do this, we are embarking on an exciting period of transformation with the expansion of our education programmes overseas.
Our vision is to develop a world-leading, flexible and responsive model of education for global health leadership that addresses specific local challenges and is delivered in partnership, incountry through regional hubs. We are in post-consultation talks with key partners to establish Ghana as our newest overseas hub, where the face-to-face components of our new flagship MSc Global Health will be delivered, enabling students from West Africa to locally access LTSM’s world-leading education. We will work in partnership with Ghanaian and other West African academic institutions to attract, retain and continually develop the best possible talent to strengthen the global health workforce in West Africa and beyond.
To accelerate this launch, we are seeking support for full and partial scholarships for the first five years of the programme. This support will enable us to make a ‘big splash’ in the growth of our educational activities in West Africa. These scholarships will enable us to attract the most talented and highly capable students. Critically, it will allow us to understand the demand for this support so that we can tailor future investment accordingly.
By breaking down geographical and financial barriers, we are helping to tackle the extreme inequality in health care that affects the world’s poorest and most vulnerable; breaking the cycle of poor health and poverty.
Leading up to our 125th anniversary in 2023, our aim is to increase the number of scholarships that we can award to give opportunities to the brightest students, irrespective of t heir financial circumstances, to study at LSTM.
If you have a question or would like to discuss supporting Scholarships, please contact us by email or just give us a call. We are always happy to help.
