University Campus Suffolk was praised for playing an important role in the economic development of the region yesterday as it took centre stage for a major political announcement.

In his immigration speech to a packed hall at the university - which was beamed live on national television - the Prime Minister highlighted the institution’s research and business credentials.

UCS - which is a partnership between the University of East Anglia and the University of Essex - opened in 2007.

David Cameron said: “It’s great to be here in Ipswich at University Campus Suffolk. This is an important time for this young and growing university.

He added: “With pioneering research and business start-up incubators UCS is playing an important role in the economic development of the region. And with some 500 students from 70 different countries of origin outside the EU. It is also a natural place to talk about something I see as a vital part of our economic strategy, which is immigration.”
