Changed lives - This qualitative study led by Dr Sarah Richards and Jessica Clark is in partnership with Suffolk County Council as part of the wider Hold Project and is funded by Heritage Lottery. This research seeks to explore the social and economic impact of graduate status for our alumni who are the first generation in their families to go to university. In the stories of our past students, we hope to capture the ways in which university education changed their lives and the lives of their family members.  These narratives will help identify the contribution that the University of Suffolk has had in the local region.

First generation stories’, a qualitative study for, ‘The Hold’, the new heritage centre for Suffolk. This project is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and forms part of the HLF funded activities
