London life

London truly is a global city, and its cultural wealth and diversity are reflected in its theatre, music, art and cuisine. There are more international students here than in any other city in the world, so your experience in London will be unrivalled in opportunities for creating lifelong memories with new friends.

Lively cafés, markets and shops fill London’s neighbourhoods, while away from the buzz there are plenty of opportunities to relax by taking a walk along the River Thames or watching the world go by in one of the many Royal Parks.

The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine is located in Bloomsbury, an area with a rich academic, medical and literary history and which is characterised by beautiful Georgian buildings and garden squares. We are situated close to partner institutions of the University of London as well as the world-famous British Museum, and a short walk from Oxford Street, Soho and Covent Garden.
