ok ok . I've looked into the facilities in SEGI, I'd say its definitely good enough. Almost as good as nottingham's but not on par. THe dean was formerly from SIT twinning with the prestigous UNISA, which means he's one of those who are on the premier league.
Here's the ultimate question to decide if segi is good enough or not: WAS SIT-UNISA doing fine? Or the students were struggling not to drown in AUS? If ok, we're all good to go.
Provisional accreditation usually if issued, the rest should be pretty smooth. Unless the whole class flunked the exams. By then, I got nothing to say la.
Total fees of nottingham and sunderland is very much different. Only the fees here are the same. But when you get to Uk, you'll find the fees is Nott costs a whole lot more than Sund-enough to reduce ppl to be a pauper.
So...wad do you guys think?
Hi. Just for the record, I'm not going for the MPharm but am doing some research for a relative.
The Sunderland MPharm, from fee perspective, is equal to Nottingham in first two years (RM33K), but is a lot more affordable for the final 2 in the UK at L6650 per year.

but if you can..you should try applying for nottingham. at least they are the top players since the fees doenst differ much.
even if you didnt meet the minimum requirement, you still has the chance as long as you shine during your interview and in your personal statement during application.
I'm not going for SEGi but am doing some research for a relative. I"m way too old and do not qualify for the Mpharm in any case.
You are right about Nottingham having a higher rank as compared to Sunderland. However, one need to ask - what's the purpose of getting the Mpharm degree. To me, I value industry recognition and membership. Both Nottingham and Sunderland gives you that.
My conclusion is that Nottingham is stronger from a research standpoint i.e. publications and cutting edge research into pharmacology and pharmacy. However, the industry perceive Sunderland grads as being more recognised as practising pharmacists worldwide.This post has been edited by Teong: Jul 8 2008, 05:21 PM
