Most of our courses take place at our historic headquarters, Madingley Hall. We also offer several courses in Cambridge city centre and a small selection in London, as well as a growing number of courses which are taught partly or wholly online.
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.
My experience of studying with ICE has been a very happy and fruitful one. The ancient Hall and its beautiful grounds provide just the right atmosphere for study and the facilities provided are excellent.
Johanna Purser, Diploma in Local History (2010–12)
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 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.
