Campus Visits


The Student Recruitment and Outreach team can arrange campus visits to the University of Suffolk, Ipswich. These visits are suitable for years 7-13. Each visit is specifically tailored to suit the age, size, and interest of the group. The aim of a year 9 visit would often be to inform the students about higher education and inspire them to consider it as a potential future pathway. Whereas a year 12 group might want to find out more about writing a personal statement or have questions around student finance, whilst wanting to experience a university lecture to see if university is right for them.

Campus visit programmes can include:

  • Various Higher Education talks and workshops (see Talks and Presentations)
  • Subject taster sessions (for year 12 students and equivalent)
  • A tour of the campus
  • Accommodation tour
  • Use of the library for research

Campus visits are free, but please note we are unable to provide refreshments, however, students are welcome to use the facilities on-campus.
