Study at LSTM


Welcoming our September 2022 student cohort

Ever since it was founded in 1898, as the world’s first institute dedicated to research and teaching of tropical medicine, LSTM has been at the forefront of providing the scientific evidence to translate relevant science into policy and practice.

As we approach our 125-year anniversary in 2023, we are investing in future leaders through a number of forward-thinking initiatives. Pembroke House is a new world class facility that will provide our students with unique opportunities to access a wide range of stakeholders through networking opportunities and immersive technology.

We are continuing our journey towards decolonising the curriculum by acknowledging the colonial history of LSTM, and our education and its epistemologies, and actively redressing this past to promote equity Moreover, significant momentum has been growing among LSTM staff and students on addressing the important issues of Sustainability and Environment. We have recently undertaken a redesign of most of our courses, informed by many years of feedback from students on what makes a powerful study experience. Our new programmes are more strongly skills-based, with a clear focus on learning through real-world case-studies and scenarios that develop students’ confidence in solving complex problems.

You will be taught by leading experts in their field, and there is added value in that you can benefit from the enhanced access to networks and opportunities that inevitably come with studying at a leading small, specialist institution. As any past student can tell you, studying at LSTM is a memorable experience. This is not just because of the unrivalled learning opportunities but because of our location.

Liverpool is a thriving, vibrant coastal city with a rich history, large international student population, endless things to do and a low cost of living. So, I hope that you will enjoy finding out more about who we are. The work we do helps to save countless lives, and our newly designed courses have been shaped to bring out the best in you, so that you too can go on to make an impact.

Come join us. Be part of something special and do contact us directly if you would like to explore more.
