Patrick Russell

Undergraduate Diploma in History of Art student


I’ve always had lifelong commitment to learning, having originally gone to university at the age of 25 as a mature student. I retired from teaching seven years ago and decided that a challenging course in an area of interest (History of Art) would be an ideal way to keep my mind active. The fact that it was in Cambridge was a bonus as I know the city well because my son studied here. I feel privileged to study at ICE as the teaching and surroundings are so conducive to continuing one’s own knowledge and interests.

Undergraduate Certificate in History of Art student


As an academic, I know how important it is to keep learning and the quality of ICE programming, instruction, and offerings keeps me coming back. I attended the Summer Programme in 2019 and, since the pandemic has made it possible for me to study virtually, I am now able to pursue my interest in History of Art. I value the opportunity to be in a class with students from all over the world, and the great tutors make every meeting and lecture valuable. I have already gained so much from my studies. At the most basic level, this experience has allowed me to expand my academic horizons and provided the opportunity for deep study in a field outside my own. I have also found many ways to include my new learning into the classes I teach.
