MESSAGE FROM THE DEPUTY HEAD
Dr. Veronica Chua
(Deputy Head, School of Nursing & Allied Health Sciences)
Welcome to School of Nursing & Allied Health Sciences!
The tremendous growth and development of the health industry since the turn of the century brings with it a growing demand for more qualified nurses and allied health professionals. To help address this need, SEGi University & Colleges set up the School of Nursing in 2006, offering our very own Diploma in Nursing. We have since moved on to also offer a bachelor’s degree in nursing: BSc (Hons) Professional Practice in Nursing 2+0 (Post Registration), in collaboration with University of Greenwich, UK.
The School of Allied Health Sciences was established later in 2010, with the introduction of programmes such as Diploma in Environmental Health, Diploma in Healthcare Management, Diploma in Medical Laboratory Technology, and Diploma in Occupational Safety & Health. Subsequently, both schools merged to become the existing School of Nursing & Allied Health Sciences with the aim of enhancing students’ learning experience through the sharing of practical skills, knowledge and learning resources across disciplines.
At SEGI, opportunities abound for students to develop necessary life skills and soft skills alongside academic knowledge in their fields of study. There is a variety of extracurricular activities at SEGi for students to participate in to enrich their academic and social life. Students learn through blended learning, supplemented by rigorous practical training with the latest equipment and techniques in their field. They also undergo practical placements in real-life working environments towards the end of their studies. Upon completion of our programmes, graduates emerge not only as industry-ready allied health professionals but well-rounded young adults.
Come join us at the School of Nursing & Allied Health Sciences for a truly fulfilling learning experience.
