The County Town of Suffolk, Ipswich plays home to University Campus Suffolk. A benchmark in academic achievement for the area, the higher education facility is the first such institute to be formed in the district and is part of the collaborative venture with the University of Essex and the University of East Anglia. Though Ipswich is not home to its own fully fledged University , the University of Essex remains a popular academic choice in the region.
