Guide to School-wide sessions

Welcome and Studying at LSHTM

Meet the Taught Programme Directors and find out more about being an MSc student at LSHTM.

Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

An introduction to equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) at LSHTM.

Decolonising Global Health

This session will provide a very brief overview of colonialism and global health, and LSHTM’s role in both. We will have a discussion about decolonising global health with facilitated breakout rooms and finally, we will introduce the DGH group at LSHTM and how students can get involved.

Decolonising the Curriculum

The Decolonising the Curriculum Group works to support the faculties to build their understanding of what is meant to decolonise the curriculum and what practical steps teams might take when doing so.

The Fight Against Institutional Racism (FAIR) Network

FAIR is a network whose aim is to produce and share knowledge about anti-racist praxis and decoloniality for the LSHTM community. We also provide a space to help students recognise, navigate and tackle racism during their time at LSHTM wherever and whenever they encounter it.

Student Life & Support at LSHTM

Find out more about our Student Support Services and the different ways to get involved as an LSHTM student.

Marketplace (13 October)

Our Marketplace is the equivalent of a "freshers' fair", where you can find out more about the student services available to you and opportunities to get involved at LSHTM. Virtual Zoom stands will be open throughout the sessions so you can drop in and out of calls at your own pace, visit as many of the stands as you like and ask your questions. Full details of all the stands can be found on our Marketplace page.
