Most helpful review

Had a really good experience with this university in my diagnostic radiography degree. Lecturers are brilliant and always there for support. I made a lot of friends in my lectures and I came straight out of my degree with a job all ready and set up. I would not change anything about my experience and wish it could have lasted longer.

There could be better facilities for Nutrition students as it feels like a course that is certainly not a priority but lecturers are very knowledgeable and helpful. It does seem to be a university that listens to its students. Student union is great and tries hard.

Like all places, there are often drawbacks to studying at the university, and a lot of things fall through the cracks sometimes. But as long as you're on top of things and you can tell when something has perhaps gone accidentally unnoticed it is very easy to gain that support. Some lecturers will teach or conduct themselves in ways that you don't find helpful to your learning style, but there is always someone to contact to make sure you are getting that learning support elsewhere. Can't fault the Wi-Fi personally and having access to the campus 24hours a day has been a huge impactor on reducing my other academic stressors. Whilst I have struggled with reaching out for support in the past, the support and compassion I received after the bereavement of my mother was incredibly helpful.

I would be good if inside the uni campus there would be a microwave and a hot water machine close by. If not we have to go over to the student union which I don’t spend lunch at so if a small community space could be made inside of the waterfront building it would help so much.

Let’s face it you don’t choose to come to Suffolk for the amazing nightlife, although if you love a good country pub, it’s got many. Suffolk university is great in my experience because I’ve had 1-1 support the whole time, seminars have never been more than 15 people and you can pretty much book a tutorial for whenever you need and know you can always get hold of tutors, lecturers and module leaders at the drop of a hat. They go above and beyond to make sure your experience is good and react to feedback very quickly to continuously make the courses (and uni as a whole) much better!

The ipswich is lovely place to study and the tutors are well to help you out with issue . The library is really resourceful. The only issue is that the student union shop has not had much in it lately.due to being redone. But have made up with having local business coming in with lovely treats.

Generally the University is great and the lecturers are passionate but the WiFi leaves room for improvement as some devices cannot connect to it. There could be better facilities in terms of affordable food and drink as prices are considerably high considering it's for students. Clubs and societies are good however, there aren't many for more creative skills rather they just mainly stick to sport oriented.

University of Suffolk is a great uni in a beautiful location, it has plenty of facilities for all needs and staff are always happy to help. It is a smaller uni which makes classes feel more personal, and it is easy to get around. The cafes on site are a great element, and there are plenty of study spaces on site with great wifi connection.

i enjoy coming to the university of suffolk. as a student paramedic a lot of my study is focused on placement time and learning in practice, but when I am at university I enjoy being on campus. I have a great relationship with my lecturers. I do think there could be a few more spaces to sit and study that aren't in the SU as in the main building sometimes there isn't much available.

I have been very impressed with this University buildings, it's staff and tutors, who are both professional and friendly. As a mature student studying BA (Hons) in Counselling I feel welcome, involved and a valued member. I love the location, right beside the waterfront with a backdrop of yachts and lovely cafes and bars around. The town center is just a 5 minute walk. There are places to hang out and gather on campus including the very helpful library. I couldn't be happier with my experience so far!

Having attended the university for some time, I can confidently say that it offers a high-quality academic experience with a strong focus on practical skills and career development. What I appreciate most about the University of Suffolk is its small class sizes and personalized attention from faculty. Overall, I would highly recommend the University of Suffolk to any prospective students who are looking for a supportive and personalized academic experience with a strong focus on practical skills and career development.

I decided to come to the university of Suffolk after visiting on an open day. It was the only uni out of 4 others I visited that I felt welcomed to, and that made me feel at home. Facilities are brilliant as there are labs with high quality computers and monitors, ones that bring people in outside of study time. There is a new health and well-being building with a new X-Ray room which is brilliant for practice and has an adult and baby phantom you can X-Ray. The Wi-Fi has always been fast and there are loads of clubs and societies which help if you’re struggling to make friends. It is a smaller uni which means there is more one to one teaching.

This University os full of diversity and that is what interests me more about the fact that everyone has the opportunity to study what they want without being critized and discriminated and the spaces are really welcome. Also, they provide free breakfast for whoever is interested and in my opinion they (University ) are aware of those who have low income and make their best to support so that won't interfere with the studies.

Spend lots of time in the student union, lovely place, equipment like pool table could do with updating and also implementing all the equipment to be signed out would be a good idea to stop damages. Study Booths are limited so maybe could use more instead of the huge wooden chair area that not many people seem to use. the lectures are stated to be practicals however this is often not the case, this requires changing. Car park is always full with bays very small, puts people off bringing in nicer cars incase the doors get hit by other drivers. Other than that a good university.

The university of Suffolk is a welcoming and friendly environment. Members of staff are always on hand for any help you may need and there are a range of social activities, events and opportunities. Having ran a society myself with the guiding aid of the university and SU services , I cannot recommend this place enough! The wifi can be spotty in non study areas but I haven’t had this issue personality, and my friends that have , have had this issue fixed by staff. The SU has a pool table, table tennis, free tea and coffee making facilities and friendly staff. Most recently, even a bakery business pop up for those necessity emergency donut breaks

As a mature student, I do not stay on campus; however, I have benefitted from social events, promotions and excellent support from tutors and staff. The University of Suffolk delivers course content that is apparently lacking in some other Universities. This was discovered after starting my placement with a student from a different uni, and I was very surprised that this was lacking on her course because I found it vital in fulfilling gmy role. The diverse range of teaching styles, guest speakers and collaboration with student voices allows for a holistic learning experience. I feel that I have a really firm foundation as I look forward to my career.

The amount of direct involvement from the uni seems minimalistic, and unless you have a good student rep you never hear anything, it would be nice to have a dedicated team who goes around classes more often to take feedback and run questionnaires. Also facility wise these are isolated to specific areas and are not always reliable at the best of times. Utilising the grounds for fairs and stalls would draw more traffic, and aiming to make more events for all classes targeting different demographics would allow for more student interactions between buildings.

I am a current second year at the University of Suffolk and from my time here so far, I would most certainly recommend this university to prospective students. Great lecturers and great module teaching - assignments are designed to support students and give them the opportunity to try new things and develop key skills. With the degree I am doing, my course has been designed in blocked format. Which means that there is 4 weeks of intense learning followed by an assignment week. There is always support available, careers services are actively involved, and generally there is great diversity in the student population; forming a phenomenal community.

Games courses are well taught, however the overall management of the university leaves much to be desired. Many higher up management decisions negatively impacting the course and teaching staff unable to implement changes based on student feedback due to overall university decisions (Such as the change to block learning which has negatively impacted project based courses). Facilities are perfectly serviceable.

I like this Uni, but honestly the Student's Union/Clubs and Societies could do with some work. I am pretty introverted, but when I wanted to be social, there was not much on that appealed to me. The LGBT society and games society have had some good events, but many of the societies listed online are inactive (even pre-COVID)

I like the library. Waterfront building is modern and the ecological aspect of the roof is cool. However, Waterfront building is very small. The Students' Union is bad. They are unhelpful, they ignore and they are weak.

One of the worst decisions I made if I could go back I would choose Open University. It is not a campus It is west Suffolk college students who dominate every space and the noise from them is atrocious. It has been the most unhappy 3 years of my life

Accommodation is shocking for the price! It basically costs the whole of your student loan for a box room with a desk. Clubs and activities are minimal compared to other uni’s. Graduation is a tent in the car park and the summer ball is at a club next door, it’s all very prestigious.

Excellent courses and lecturers, who are always happy to help out. Small class sizes means a personal link to tutors, which is very beneficial to the learning environment. The Students' Union is active to improve the range and size of clubs and societies, as well as provide sport and activities.
