Life in London
London truly is a global city, and its cultural wealth and diversity are reflected in its theatre, music, art and cuisine. There are more international students here than in any other city in the world, so your experience in London will be unrivalled in opportunities for creating lifelong memories with new friends.
Lively cafés, markets and shops fill London’s neighbourhoods, while away from the buzz there are plenty of opportunities to relax by taking a walk along the River Thames or watching the world go by in one of the many Royal Parks.
The School is located in Bloomsbury, an area with a rich academic, medical and literary history and which is characterised by beautiful Georgian buildings and garden squares. We are situated close to partner institutions of the University of London as well as the world-famous British Museum, and a short walk from Oxford Street, Soho and Covent Garden.
Due to the School’s central location transport facilities are excellent. These include underground stations at Goodge Street (Northern Line) and Tottenham Court Road (Northern and Central Lines), as well as national and international rail stations at Euston, King’s Cross and St Pancras and St Pancras International which are a few minutes walk away.
The Study Team at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine are here to answer any queries, issues and questions you might have relating to the studying with us. This can be anything from applications, accommodation and visa, course information and student life in London.
And if you would rather speak to one of our students, we can also arrange that!
