New artist's impressions of what a 20m education quarter in Suffolk will look like have been unveiled.

The University Campus Suffolk (UCS) has revealed computer-generated designs for its planned new buildings at Ipswich docks.

The UCS is a link-up between the universities of East Anglia and Essex and local colleges, such as Suffolk College, in Ipswich.

If the plans get the go-ahead building work could be completed by 2008.

The building team have been given the brief to design a landmark building.

The first students are expected to enrol at UCS in September 2007.

At first students' degrees will be validated by the university partners, but the new campus could eventually be awarded university status.

The buildings have been designed by RMJM architects.

Neil Jackson, capital programme manager for UCS, said: "These images will further enable us to gauge public opinion and continue to develop the designs for the building.

"The design will continue to be developed and refined ahead of the university's planning application for the Waterfront building in September of this year.

"We think this will be a fantastic new building and these images will give everyone a preview of what will soon be a significant addition to the skyline of the Ipswich Waterfront and Education Quarter."
