    Since Pharmacy at LSOP is pretty top and first choice for many applicants, I thought I'd start a specific thread to bring to your attention (since no one has actually mentioned LSOP in the main thread in GUD(!)).

    Here's the main discussion thread in GUD - List of bankrupt universities thread
    The Times confirms the universities which someone listed from the Guardian newspaper, in that thread.

    School of Pharmacy does in fact refer to LSOP since in the UCAS search page LSOP is listed as 'S12 The School Of Pharmacy (University of London)'.

    Lord....and to think I was going to LSOP - no offence it looked like a great place to gain a degree- but its so good and you look at some of the unis on that list and think....
    Wait were the government going to publish this properly in newspapers or give to schools so students know what they are going in for. what would happen if you were studing a degree and the uni went bankrupted?

    Apparently the list was published in the Guardian a few days ago, but I think it missed out a couple of 'big' unis.

    If you read the main thread, it talks about transferring to another uni to complete it. Of course, this may not be possible in all cases, so you're pretty screwed if you have an incompleted degree

    BTW, just to note, some of the universities on that list are from a few years ago, so they may not all be in the danger zone now.

    There are a few universities that did suprise me, LSOP included. It might have something to with them not offering any undergraduate BSc degrees (except 4-year-Pham which is technically a Masters)? Other than MPharm, the rest are normal masters and Phds. Now, lots of money usually comes from post graduate study, but perhaps this financial downfall (if true) can be explained by the poor popularity/demand of LSOP in general? Don't know, just a thought.

    Lsop seemed nice when i went. A fairly decent cafateria, nice white labs. I completely agree that part of the problem may be that they only offer one undergraduate degree

    i dont think that would be a problem becuase there is nothing wrong with teaching and its one of the top 5. correct me if i am wrong

    i just want to finish the degree before it closes down

    Hi all. I have read the article and seen the university that has been listed. However, I have to point out that on the article, it states "43 universities on Hefce's list of colleges at risk of financial failure between 1998 and 2003." and "School of Pharmacy
    Category 2* between January 1998 and February 2001." which brings me to a conclusion that this article may only be talking about university at risk during 1998 and 2003. It is now 2008 and LSOP is still going well so this brings doubts to me that LSOP is really "at risk" anymore. Please correct me if I have mistaken.
