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.

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.
