Programme specifications

Programme specifications summarise the intended learning outcomes of individual programmes of study, whilst also giving further information about both the actual programme itself and about studying at LSHTM. They are designed to not only help prospective students decide whether to study on a particular course, but also to aid External Examiners to judge whether students have met the specific requirements for an award or not.

See our courses page for information on all the courses we offer.
