Why I chose LSHTM/my course
I did an additional 'communication in science' course as part of my undergraduate degree and we had to do a project on antimicrobial resistance. My options were tuberculosis or gonorrhoea. Obviously I picked the latter and got so into it that I wrote my dissertation on it and then found an MSc that let me go deeper down the rabbit hole...so to speak. The other major reason I picked the MSc Reproductive & Sexual Health Research is its twin-focus on methodology as well as relevant research interests. Everything I was worried I didn't know enough about or how to do has been well addressed with ample access to support.
