Study at LSTM


Welcome to our 2021/22 students

Dear Prospective Student,

As the world’s first institute dedicated to research and teaching of tropical medicine, LSTM has been working with partners on Global Health challenges since 1898. Our commitment to this agenda is more important than ever as we move forward and welcome students from across the globe in the 2021/22 academic year.

At the forefront of any considerations are the health and safety of our students and staff. We are also working with the latest advice and guidance) from the UK Government. 

We appreciate and value the importance of face-to-face learning and interaction as an integral part of your student experience and for building relationships with peers and academics on your programmes and for improving attainment levels. We will ensure that plans are in place to enable a safe experience based on national COVID-19 guidelines. 

In all of our face-to-face teaching and laboratory sessions, we will follow UK government guidelines on social distancing as required at the time.

Your student experience is key. Our Student Advice and Wellbeing Team have enhanced the flexibility and breadth of provision to students over the past year to allow for support and access to mental health and wellbeing services both virtually and in person. We have worked extensively with our Student Representatives to help shape and modify our provision in line with student feedback. 

We will be updating our frequently asked questions(opens in a new tab) to ensure that we provide you with the latest information as we progress with our plans. 

We look forward to welcoming you to the LSTM community.

With best wishes

Dr Martyn Stewart, Dean of Education (ad interim)
