LSHTM Skills & Learning: Market Research

Students in LSHTM Library

We commissioned market research to inform the Education Strategy in 2022 and we want to express our deepest gratitude to the alumni who contributed significantly.

It was incredible to see the enthusiasm of our alumni to be part of this market research to help inform how we develop our education provision for the future.

We are delighted to demonstrate the outcomes of this research, especially to all the alumni who took time to complete surveys and attend interviews.
