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
When I look at what education and Cambridge means to me, it’s about personal development, not prestige. The course has made me more aware of my own thinking, patterns of behaviour, and listening.
Dario Ostojic, Undergraduate Diploma in Coaching
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.
