academic year 20/21

suffolk new college is delighted to announce that we are preparing to re-open the college fully in time for the start of the academic year. it will be very much ‘business as usual’ for our staff and students.

we have lots of course options available to suit everyone and we plan to deliver the majority of our study programmes face-to-face, in our state of the art facilities. a small proportion of each course will be delivered online or in a virtual environment, as part of our blended learning model. all modes of study will be supported by our dedicated and experienced team of staff.

the college has put a variety of safety measures in place to ensure we are compliant with government and phe guidance. the safety of our students and staff is an absolute priority. we are confident that, whilst we have had to implement some new processes and systems, this will not diminish the exceptional student experience we strive for.

students travelling via college transport will be able to travel as normal, but with some measures. those using transport will be contacted directly for the detail to be shared with them. (this will include sitting in the same seat each journey etc.)

we are accepting online applications now, with virtual enrolment commencing in early august. further details can be found here. we are really looking forward to welcoming our new intake of students this year as well as seeing some of our progressing students return. we strongly advise you to submit your applications as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

if you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us.
