Made a subject that I thought above me very accessible. A good balance for the differing knowledge of the group.
MH, Science student
The calibre of the tuition has been outstanding – tutors have combined education with passion for their subjects. I have always felt impelled to go on to further study.
AC, History student
It was great that the tutor gave us the space to write and actually work on something and then get feedback on it. His offer to read prior work too really helped in getting the ball rolling. … I loved the staff at the reception, they were so kind and helpful. The catering staff were so courteous and helpfully wonderful. They went out of their way to make things even better. Wished hotels were like this. Wonderful staff.
MH, Creative Writing 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.
SP, Literature student
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.
