I am a third year student in biology/international affairs student at a top 50 university in the US. I am interested in doing a global health degree abroad and was looking at masters programs at Imperial College London, University College London, LSHTM, and Oxford. I was wondering how much experience in the field is expected for applicants. My stats are below:

GPA: 3.95/4.0

Research Experience:
3 years of research on antibiotic resistant bacteria, including independent research project and poster presentations
4 months of full time research on micro-algae in Germany
Will spend 4 months studying global health in rural India while conducting research on social factors influencing spread of MDR-TB.

Do you think this is enough for any of these programs straight out of undergrad and does anyone have experience with them?


Oxford would just be taking your money. I had a friend who had a 4.0./4.0 in Biochem/PH with research heavier than yours (NIH, NSF, both producing publications), etc. she didn't get in. She did get into LSHTM though, so I would encourage you to apply there if you think it's worth your time.
