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.

Studying with ICE provides an enjoyable opportunity to engage with up-to-date academic ideas in a variety of disciplines, with like-minded people, guided by enthusiastic and knowledgeable lecturers.
Linda Swain, Certificate in Genetics (2010–11)
I have thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience of studying through the Institute of Continuing Education. The provision of materials and resources was first class, together with the regular communication throughout the course that I was studying for. The online learning environment was excellent and provided a valuable and useful learning interface. The face to face sessions at Madingley Hall were very useful and well-structured sessions.
