MSc in Tropical Medicine and International Health at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

lionel-nzigamaI am very happy and honoured to be the first recipient of the Rowland scholarship, which helped me secure my accommodation at Goodenough College.

I come from a Burundi, where a strong sense of community still prevails. Goodenough College was the best choice in that respect. It promotes a genuine integration of all Members in the community. This has helped me in my new life as a student at an international institution such as London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

I was a little apprehensive about my new life in London, as I have never lived in a European city before. But I soon found my place. Life at Goodenough College is exciting. You constantly discover your "true self" as you get involved in different activities organized by the College.

Staff members strive to ensure that all aspects of our needs are met. It is very reassuring to know they are willing to help you and make your time at the College one of the best experiences of your student life.
