Fellow Nairalanders, please, I really need your say on this topic and it is urgent.
Between Unizik and UNN which is a better place to study Pharmacy.

I would love experienced persons to help out and also back it up with reasons.
Thanks

Why would someone choose Unizik over UNN?
Unizik shouldn't even be your 5th choice.

Unizik all the way.

Conducive learning campus environment at Agulu.
This school of Pharmacy was pioneered by Prof. Dora Akunyili, a famous and Outstanding Pharmacist hence it Is located at her hometown in Agulu.

Up to date, Professional and Quality Staff strength.
The school is Sponsored by so many Pharmaceutical firms such as Juhel Nig. ltd etc

So make your choice. Either become a Giant Zikite or Become like others.

I thought u wanted to mention may and baker or glakosmithkline.

UNN is cool. but dont hate UNIZIK

Larger number of profs that come to class to dictate notes. Any foool can dictate notes to students. So having high numbers of sadists, who are frustated add nothing to a school asides research.. If u grad, no one would ask u wia u grad frm! All required frm u is wat u can give
I can feel your frustration, calm down okay.

If the young guy is in the southeast, he should take a trip to the two schools of Pharmacy and see some things for himself. He should also ask some questions once he is in the schools. The distance from Nsukka to Agulu is not that far so the guy can check out things for himself first.
That not withstanding, all the Pharmacy schools accredited by NUC and PCN are good. Whether it is Unilag or Uniport or OAU or Madona or NDU or Unijos or ABU or OOU or any other Pharmacy school, they are all good. This type of comparison is not necessary as each school has its own strong and weak points.
UNN is among the premier universities in Nigeria (you can't take that away) but the young ones are doing well and Unizik is among the young ones.
Some people saying late Prof. Dora Akunyili started pharmacy school in Unizik or that she influenced the location of the Pharmacy school to Agulu don't have the facts. Prof. Dora Akunyili is a great Pharmacist and an erudite Professor but she did not start the pharmacy school in Agulu nor influenced it. The CEO of Juhel Pharmaceuticals Dr. Ifeanyi Okoye had more influence than most people in the establishment of Unizik Pharmacy school.
UNN has more Pharmacy professors than Unizik but that is normal as UNN started long before Unizik came into existence and it's logical UNN should have more professors. Some of the UNN pharmacy professors still go to Unizik Pharmacy school as adjunct to lecture.
The product from both pharmacy schools are good as I have interviewed some of them but some are still so timid and naive both UNN and Unizik. I think Agulu being closer to the capital city Awka exposes the Unizik pharmacy students to other social life compared to UNN pharmacy students that stays mostly in Nsukka which is a semi urban area. There was a time a ban was placed on participation in politics by pharmacy students in UNN (PANS was banned in UNN that period) and you know these things affect students socially.
As at now UNN lost Pharmacy accreditation of PCN as some students or miscreants burnt down Pharmacology department. So no pharmacy student will graduate from UNN now until the accreditation is back. This will influence some students in choice making.
Both UNN and Unizik pharmacy schools do plenty pharmaceutical research. UNN has plenty pharmacist researchers and most are internationally recognised. Unizik too has pharmacy researchers but not compared to UNN. There was a year the faculty of pharmacy Unizik won the best research faculty in the whole of Unizik.
UNN has more Pharmacy lecturers compared to Unizik. Infact UNN lends some of their pharmacy lecturers to Unizik.
If you talk of state of the art facility in terms of pharmacy school, Unizik has it far more than UNN. Good environment and facility matters in the training of a pharmacist.
Where you are from might also play a role in getting admission faster as it seems UNN is more Pan Igbo compared to Unizik that looks as if it admits Anambra people more. But it still depends on other things.
If you want to graduate faster I think I will suggest Unizik as all this internal faculty politics is not yet much in Unizik pharmacy when compared to UNN pharmacy. You study your pharmacy in peace and go your way.
Both schools are good but what matters most is the effort the student is willing to put to make himself a better pharmacist.

Keep deceiving thyself... I have interviewed graduates of pharmacy from your school, and those from UNN, the difference was terribly, ridiculously, and grossly glaring... It is not all about infrastructure, it is about quality of teaching, mentoring, training, and assessments... and in these regards, UNN dwarfs UNIZIK in no small measure....
Not hating o, and not even from UNN... I judge a school not by her size, but mostly by the quality, intelligence, and exposure of her graduates.

This is a skewed way of reasoning my dear. It shows clearly that you have a preference for one school over the other. I have seen graduates from all over but I have observed that the school is never what makes the person, his inbuilt ability does.

At my work place, I work with graduates and undergraduates from other schools and I've realised that it's about you and not the school. An Ife fresh graduate seems to have forgotten all he has learnt while we were chatting. I wasn't disappointed, I knew that's the system and it takes personal effort to make the difference. That does make Ife less of a great institution if you choose to see it that way.

lolsss Akunyili being a product and professor of pharmacy in UNN says it all. even the Zik in question founded UNN. in short we have two universities in Nigeria which is University of Nigeria and others lolsss

Continue to deceive yourself with this idea of two universities in Nigeria. Unilag students will tell you the same thing. Students from most universities will tell you the same thing.

Having completed one undergraduate program in one of the tertiary institutions and currently undergoing another in another tertiary institution, I have observed that the level of decay and neglect in our education system is very high and the same in all the institutions.

As a student, you make yourself what you want to be. Many lecturers will dictate note and expect you to give them in tests and examinations exactly what they gave you in the class; this is not acceptable for a student's growth and development.

It is not about the school or the certificate. It is about you and the solution you have to societal problems. The school just gives you the basics. I have observed that students who have achieved or in the process of achieving their goals went beyond what they were offered in schools.

To the Op, choose any of the schools that has full accreditation by necessary bodies. Choose the school where you have better chances of being admitted to study your dream course. Then, go beyond the curriculum or your school in putting in your best to become a star in that field.

Remember, time waits for no man.

Please tell them that.
Yes, it is good to have many professors as your lecturers. But it is better to have doctors(PhD holders) that can do the job better than professors that dictate old and worn out notes without any latest information added in them.

Op just go to anyone that gives you admission and make sure you come out with good grades, thats all. What matters in this country is the grade you made at school. Outside Nigeria, I'm afraid certificates from here are looked at with caution.

Op, take the advice of graduating with good grades.
However, disregard the information that grades are what matters in this country, unless you don't have a purpose in life.

Grades are secondary; "good and dependable" knowledge is primary.
