University of Suffolk celebrate independence
02 August 2016
The University of Suffolk is the newest university in the UK having gained independence this week and officially changed its name from University Campus Suffolk.
The University was originally set up in 2007 under a partnership between the University of East Anglia and the University of Essex. The change means it can now award its own degrees, seek funding and make more of its own decisions.
Vice chancellor Richard Lister said: "Although we are community-based, this is not just about a university for Suffolk. We have to bring in bright people from the rest of the country, from the rest of the world, to replace those bright Suffolk students that leave and go and study somewhere else."
