University Campus Suffolk in Ipswich and the new university centre for Milton Keynes have opened

Teaching has begun in the new flagship building for the recently created university in Suffolk.

University Campus Suffolk (UCS), in Ipswich, was established by the University of East Anglia and the University of Essex last year.

The new 35m university building has been built on the waterfront, and there is planning permission for additional waterfront buildings nearby.

More than 3,000 students are beginning their studies in the new development.

Peter Funnell, executive dean of UCS, said: "It's very sophisticated [with] information and communication technologies and multi-media teaching and learning resources, which makes our facilities some of the best in the county."
