PhD Students

LSHTM is part of the ESRC’s UBEL Doctoral Training Partnership. Studentships are advertised towards the end of each calendar year, for entry the following autumn.

LSHTM is also part of the BBSRC’s London Interdisciplinary Training Programme. Studentships are advertised around the middle of each calendar year.

The Bloomsbury Colleges Consortium offers funding for studentships supervised across at least 2 of the Bloomsbury Colleges (LSHTM, Birkbeck, SOAS, Royal Veterinary College).

LSHTM also hosts a webpage with details of funding opportunities for potential PhD students.
