Tell Me About the Price

LSHTM has been offering online learning programs since 1998: as a mode of study, distance learning allows students to work flexibly, providing them with the opportunity to study regardless of their circumstances. 

Enabling the most talented students from all backgrounds to study at LSHTM is a key strategic priority. As outlined in the Strategy to Promote Access and Broaden Participation, LSHTM wants to be a place where students from diverse backgrounds feel like they belong, can thrive and are valued for their unique contributions.

As part of this work, the LSHTM offers 2 scholarships to support students in completing a distance MSc. These initiatives aim to enable excellent students from groups historically underrepresented in higher education at postgraduate level to study, feel a sense of belonging and succeed at LSHTM.
