vancouverrunner Posted May 12, 2017 Share Posted May 12, 2017 HI all, Does anyone have any insight into the London School of Hygiene in Tropical Medicine's Global Health Policy program? I have done my research and was actually accepted into the program. It is entirely through distance education with an option to go to London and study at the school for a 6 week blended-learning option. There is an option for a project at the end, otherwise known as a thesis. I work full-time as a research assistant so this masters would allow me the time to build my professional career as well as my academic. Apparently, LSHTM has an outstanding reputation and I have spoken with a wide representation of people who have all pretty much regarded the program to be high. My worry is about the potential for networking through distance education. Also, is there any stigma associated with a distance masters degree? There isn't much in terms of funding through distance education but the price tag isn't too hefty. I really like the international perspective, without having to leave for too long. Also, their connections to the UN, WHO etc... In the global health/policy world, how is LSHTM regarded? Should I hold out to apply to other schools next year? Thanks ahead for reading this!
