Centre for History in Public Health - MSc Studentship

The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) has been awarded funding by the Wellcome Trust (through their Master’s Programme Awards in Humanities and Social Science) to support one studentship through MSc Public Health in 2021/22.

The studentship will support: 

  • tuition fees at the Home (UK) full-time fee rate for one year; and
  • tax-free stipend of GBP 17,000.00, paid out to the awardee directly in 12 monthly instalments; and
  • expenses for MSc project fieldwork of up to GBP 1,044.00.

The successful student will be required to follow a humanities and social science ‘pathway’ through the MSc Public Health scheme. This will involve taking modules in humanities and social science disciplines and using one or more of these approaches in the MSc project.
The studentship is only available to applicants who are assessed to have ‘Home’ (UK) fee status, according to the regulations set out on the UKCISA website.
Applicants must hold an offer of admission for 2021-22 entry for the London-based (face-to face) MSc Public Health programme at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine by the studentship deadline of 23:59 (BST) on 18 April 2021.
