      Where can you find us?

      We are working remotely for part of the week and offer a mixture of in-person and online activities. The team can be contacted on careers@lshtm.ac.uk.  In-person appointments take place on most Mondays and Thursdays so please check the appointment details carefully when booking. You can find us in Room G20a on the ground floor.  See the second map at this link.


      The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine is committed to ensuring digital accessibility for as many people as possible.  For more information please see the accessibility section on our website, which includes our Moodle accessibility statement.   Please note: Recordings created from September 2020 onwards are accompanied by automatically generated subtitles and transcript by Microsoft or Panopto. These are not always 100% accurate.

      You said - we did

      Student feedback indicated...

      • ... you would like more contact with alumni. We now run alumni networking events for students to meet alumni working in a range of sectors.
      • ... many students would like to see a wider range of organisations at our Careers Information Fairs, including more organisations recruiting non-clinicians. We have opened our careers fairs to a wider range of employers, and almost 50% of organisations at recent fairs were recruiting for roles other than clinical roles. Full details of the organisations that attended are available on the events page.
      • ... you would like more information about employers both in this country and overseas. We recruited four student ambassadors to conduct informational interviews with representatives of organisations in this country and overseas.  Their reports can be found in the 'Employer Information' folder in the Career and study options section.
