Madingley Weekly Programme
Short courses at Madingley Hall
This programme of short courses runs between January and May each year. Courses typically last for 5 weeks, with one 2-hour session every week. Most are taught at our home, Madingley Hall, a 16th-century manor house on the outskirts of Cambridge with some of the finest gardens in the region.
One course, many disciplines
Much of the Madingley Weekly Programme is multi-disciplinary, meaning you get to explore a variety of perspectives on each topic – guided by leading experts from the University of Cambridge.
Get support – when and where you want it
All courses on the Madingley Weekly Programme are supported by our virtual learning environment (VLE). You can download course material, contact your tutor and talk to fellow students via the web at a time and place that’s convenient to you.

I loved the cross-curricular nature of the lectures which opened up ideas and knowledge of other areas. The links between apparently discrete subjects were unexpected and developed understanding.

Excellent. I enjoy the scholarship, passion and humour. Infectious.

Very friendly, accessible, helpful and knowledgeable. … Lots of good practice writing; developed ideas further - now I feel I'm on my way.
