eLearning is an important part of our education programme here at the Institute of Continuing Education (ICE). Through our eLearning website, ICE Online, you have the opportunity to study and learn online, access learning resources, and interact with your tutor and fellow students.
Read about some of our recent Certificate and Diploma students and their experiences of studying with ICE.
Studying with ICE has been a great experience. The support offered is tremendous and it is marvellous to have access to the University library and be taught in small classes by experts in their field. Madingley Hall is a beautiful place and a lovely environment in which to learn. What a great opportunity.
Katy Tyndall, Undergraduate Diploma in History of Art (2012–13)
The course was fantastically interesting, challenging and a real pleasure. The tutors were engaging, fun and genuinely great people. What a pleasure and a privilege the whole course was! I was very sad to see it end. I am still in touch with my former classmates, and have made lots of contacts in the Astronomy and Astrophysics field. The staff at Madingley Hall were a delight and extremely helpful … It was, and will remain one of the best experiences of my life.
Christina Botterill, Undergraduate Certificate in Astronomy (2012–13)
I would highly recommend the Certificate in International Development at ICE. The programme has definitely equipped me further in undertaking assignments for the UN and other international organisations. It has provided a solid base to look at different factors … when implementing poverty alleviation programmes or in developing policies to address complex issues associated with developing countries and other emerging economies.
