Share your knowledge – Write an alumni blog post

Want to share your experiences of LSHTM? Are you involved in interesting research? Have you been on a trip that the world needs to know about? Write for our alumni blog!

This blog is a space for our alumni to show what they are/have been involved in. With over 30,000 alumni living across the world, there are exciting stories to be shared.

If you are short of time or in need of some inspiration, we are happy to provide an alumni profile template. This will ask about your time at LSHTM, the connections you made and what you have achieved since leaving. You could answer these questions in the time it takes to make a coffee!

Blog posts are shared on here and on our social media pages – tell your colleagues, friends and family to take a look.

To get started just email Alumni@LSHTM.ac.uk with your full name and what you would like to blog about.

Our top tips!

  1. Keep it simple (and to the point): There’s just not enough hours in the day, make your blog easy to digest for readers.
  2. Use images: A picture speaks a thousand words, utilise them to express your story.
  3. Use links: Let your audience know where they can find out more!
