As important as securing a place on the right course is, so is enrolling at the right university. At the University of Suffolk, Prof Langton and her team are well aware of how vital it is to create an environment which supports and allows each student to get the best out of their time at Suffolk.

“We are also proud of the extremely supportive environment that we provide for our students, which ensures they can give their best as they study and enjoy student life."

This is a university of and for the people, a university which seeks to transform lives.

The University has pioneered Block and Blend teaching for undergraduate students, where students focus on one or two modules at a time, in intensive teaching blocks. This provides students with a richer learning experience, and increased depth in study across their programme.

Delivery is supported through a Blended approach, where students access instructionally designed learning resource materials and activities which scaffold learning across the virtual and physical learning environments and affords students the flexibility to take control of their learning.

“Results time can be a stressful period for people already anxious about their prospects,” said Prof Langton, “but almost every university will have Clearing pages on their websites detailing course vacancies and admissions hotlines with supportive staff on hand to help guide applicants through the process."

All Clearing courses are listed on the university website:
