About the University of Suffolk

After nine years of strengthening its reputation the University of Suffolk, formally known as University Campus Suffolk, achieved University status in 2016. This evolution was much faster than expected, faster than any other institution, which speaks volumes for the quality of education on offer here and the quality processes completed to achieve full status.

Before now, Suffolk was one of only four counties in the UK without a university, and both staff and students have been working towards establishing the institution as a distinct and reputable place of study. Considering its humble beginnings and the fact that the University of Suffolk is young and small compared to other institutions, its growth is of key economic and educational importance: putting Suffolk on the map as an exciting destination for students to learn and discover opportunity.

The University of Suffolk is agile and responsive, custom built for a changing world, absorbing the best of UK university traditions and aligning them with a twenty first century audience and a modern world of employment and entrepreneurship. It is committed to being economically relevant and having a measurable civic impact, whilst remaining student centric.

The University of Suffolk is comprised of the main Ipswich Campus, with learning networks in the Further Education Colleges in Bury St Edmunds, Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft, and at Suffolk New College, Ipswich.
