This is such an up and coming university.

I really appreciate the university. I have been for several talks there and heard inspirational speakers. Keep it up UoS

This is a very lovely modern campus set on the marina which seems nice. It is surrounded by restaurants and coffee shops on the water and seems like a nice campus.

Definitely an interesting building to look at! An situated in a picturesque area of Ipswich. However it's not an individual university as the degrees you get aren't from ucs.

Despite the name this isn't a university, it doesn't award its own degrees and relies on other regional universities. The building, however, is quite nice. It is far from unique, quite a common modern style nowadays, but still nice none-the-less, far better than the old square box style.

Worth to see a piece of modern architecture with Question mark sculpture as especially effective place for selfie.

Would recommend this university especially if you live in the local area as you can gain your degree on your doorstep. There is a wide range of courses and several of them are the best in the country in that subject. It has great facilities for students to use including; library, computers and quiet areas to study in. This university... More

Nipped in to see what the fuss was all about, glad i did. I can now see how these places are so expensive for the students. So much wasted space, huge ceilings. Large screens and mac's everywhere. Shame they didn't think more about what the university is there for and less about spending the millions of pounds they clearly wasted... More

Local technical college that calls itself a university. promotes what it fails to deliver. Go elsewhere for your education

I'm a 19 year old biological sciences undergraduate, currently revising for my final first year exams and I generally can only speak positively about the University and the town. The course itself is taught by experts in their fields, and to a fairly high standard with brillient facilities. It's main building is situated along the Waterfront, which is beautiful when... More

Recently given university status, this is the towns newest student learning area - adjacent to the opulent Waterfront full of unbelievable expensive, floating craft - as well as the adjoining, stupendous quantity of brand new student accommodation apartment buildings. Students attending here must think they've come to some sort of fairytale venue..................until they stumble across the dismal, decaying shopping quarter... More
