The LSHTM Careers service provides a range of services for all intensive master's, research degree and diploma students at LSHTM, as well as those who have graduated from the London campus within the past 2 years. Through our Careers Consultants you can access support to help you explore career options and move ahead in your career or further study. Distance Learning students can use our online resources, including online events and workshops (both live and recorded) and information on career options, job hunting, applications and interviews.
How we can help you
30 minute one-to-one appointments with a careers consultant, available Monday to Thursday. You do not need to know what career option you want to pursue in order to come for a careers appointment. They can be used for anything from exploring initial ideas to reviewing an application you are about to submit.
Practice interviews. These give you a chance to practise answering possible interview questions, receive feedback to hone your technique and discuss effective preparation for your forthcoming interview.
- Career workshops
These are led by LSHTM careers consultants and cover a range of topics from ‘How to choose a career’ to information workshops about specific career options.
- Employer talks
We regularly arrange employer presentations with opportunities for Q&A. Recent speakers include representatives from CHAI, ICRC, Costello Medical, Local Authority Public Health departments and WPP Health.
- Career panels
Our career panel discussions bring together speakers from a range of organisations and roles to give insight into the wide variety of careers within global and public health.
LSHTM Connect (our alumni platform) gives you direct access to our alumni all over the world.
- Alumni talks
Many of our alumni are keen to share their career experiences with current students and to offer support and advice. Previous alumni speakers include Vanessa Kerry, founder of the non-profit Seed Global Health, Elizabeth Pisani, Director of public health consultancy Ternyata Ltd and Bobby Pritt, leading parasitology academic.
