Join us on the 11th December for our Annual Student Christmas Event. 

We'll be kicking off in John Snow at 5.30pm to cover:

  • Welcome and short overview of MARCH.
  • How can the MARCH centre benefit students, and ways you can get involved.
  • What makes a good summer project?
  • Summary of the MARCH summer project list.

Afterwards, we'll be holding a networking reception in the South Courtyard Café, where the A, B, C, and Gender Based Violence teams will be on hand with the summer project lists!

Please note - this is an internal event for LSHTM students only.

Short courses

MARCH is affiliated with two short courses at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine; Adolescent Health in Low and Middle Income Countries & Researching Gender-Based Violence: Methods and Meaning.

Career development

One of MARCH’s strategic aims is to aid in developing research leadership in the Women, Children and Adolescent health research fields, particularly by increasing diversity and supporting the next generation of female leaders. 

Summer project match-making: MARCH facilities a highly sought-after ‘match-making’ service for students to find summer research projects, a component of the Masters programmes at LSHTM, helping students source ideas and available projects in the Women, Children and Adolescent health fields, and providing advice on how to find the right project.

Student liaisons: MARCH appoints theme-specific student liaisons, which provide students the opportunity to work directly with senior staff and gain skills useful for future roles, from collating a termly member newsletter to helping facilitate events. MARCH members also benefit from increased engagement with students through the liaisons to aid their teaching practices and increase student engagement
