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.

Expert supervision, excellent research facilities and efficient and friendly ICE staff all contributed to making my studies for a prestigious University of Cambridge qualification a most enjoyable and rewarding experience.
Irving James Eberwein, Advanced Diploma in the Study of Religion (2010–12)
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.
Sanjay Mistry, Undergraduate Certificate in the Principles and Practice of Assessment (2012–13)
I would encourage anyone to get into Madingley. It does not judge you on what you have or haven't got as qualifications. It listens to the concerns of those like myself who lack initial confidence and it has opened up for me the world of English literature.
