After a career as a lecturer in literature and linguistics, I've enjoyed being a student again. ICE offers quality courses, in lovely surroundings and good company, well served by friendly staff.
EC, History student
Your courses have turned me – a desultory and lazy reader – into one more focussed. The excellent tutors and fellow students have opened up to me a world previously unimagined.
PMcD, Literature student
I have found the literature courses studied with ICE enjoyable. The study groups have been most encouraging - stimulating an appetite for even more reading and learning.

I wanted to write for some time, but I needed help. The creative writing course has provided that help. It has been challenging, stimulating and always a pleasure.
