Offer of admission - what to do next

This information applies to both master's and research degree students who have received an Offer of Admission from LSHTM.

Frequently asked questions

Read our frequently asked questions which explain more about the forms you need to complete and submit to Registry. In addition to the signed offer of admission, a number of documents will be required from you before you can register for your study with us. You should refer to your offer letter to check which of the following conditions apply to you.

Original evidence of qualifications  

If you have been made an Offer of Admission, your offer will clearly detail the original documents that you are required to present to the Admissions team. In light of the current circumstances we will be accepting the following alternative formats as original evidence of qualifications :

• An electronic transcript provided by a secure third-party link shared with via an approved electronic verification system, such as Digitary or Parchment.

• A PDF transcript sent from an official institution email address directly to by a suitable department or staff member, such as Registry or School Office.

• A formal letter sent from an official institution email address directly to by a suitable department or staff member (such as Registry or School Office). The letter should be on headed paper and must confirm your course, results and years of study, as well as why the institution cannot provide a transcript.

Please do not post any documents to the School until further notice.

Financial evidence or proof of sponsorship

If you are being sponsored for your studies you need to provide a  sponsor letter indicating the amount of funding.  If you are paying your own tuition fees you do not need to supply any further evidence at this point.  Due to Covid-19, term one teaching will be delivered wholly online. If you plan to travel to London for term two and would like to apply for a Tier 4 visa you will need to apply for a CAS and therefore provide financial evidence.  Further information can be found on our immigration and visa webpages.

English language

You must meet the LSHTM's minimum English language requirements.
