One day, one concept: Robotics | Institute of Continuing Education (ICE) skip to content

Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)

From R2-D2 in Star Wars, robots are often spoken of as a futuristic or even alien concept but many are in use in our every-day lives. This course studies those currently in development, as well as placing the robots of today, and the future, in the context of the past 50 years.


Fees & bursaries


The course fee includes tuition, tea, coffee and lunch and travel on excursions (but not entrance fees to properties visited).

VAT does not apply to course fees and there is no service charge (gratuities to domestic staff are left to your discretion).


You may cancel a course booking at any time. After the 14 day cancellation period has expired, the standard ICE course cancellation policy will apply. Please view our refund and cancellation policy for further details.


The Cambridge University Press (CUP) Bursary Fund offers a bursary of 50% of the course fee to applicants who teach in a UK state school or state-funded further education institution, applying to study a day school, weekend course or online course.

Unless otherwise stated, teaching and assessment for ICE courses are in English. Students whose first language is not English should refer to the Competence in the English Language Policy for further guidance.
