STUDYING AT ITM, A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE

Each year about 700 health professionals and researchers from all over the world study at ITM. Many students come from low- or middle-income countries.

We mainly offer ‘advanced teaching and training’: doctoral and master degree programmes, postgraduate certificate courses and short courses as part of lifelong learning.

Our education – in human or veterinary tropical medicine and international public health – is problem-oriented and focuses on both academic and professional skills. The courses use a participatory approach to learning. Exchange on professional experience between students and teaching staff is very enriching. Debate and critical reflection are key.

Most courses are offered on-campus and some partly or entirely online.
