Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)


Summer Programme: 10 July - 6 August 2022

Join us in Cambridge this summer

We’re delighted to announce a return to in-person teaching at Cambridge in summer 2022. Our Summer Programme offers a choice of over 100 one-week courses across four weeks, allowing you to combine courses from a wide range of subject in the fields of Arts and Humanities, Sciences, Business Studies and Global Studies. This gives you the flexibility to build your own personalised study programme, lasting from one to four weeks. Courses are taught by a combination of leading Cambridge academics and guest subject specialists from beyond the University.


To add to your academic experience you can book to stay in a Cambridge College, close to the teaching site and the vibrant city centre. While staying in College you will meet fellow students and become familiar with Cambridge in a way few are privileged to experience. Non-residential places are also available for those who live locally or who prefer to stay elsewhere.


Who can apply?

We welcome applications from all adult learners, you will need to be confident understanding and following arguments presented in written and spoken English at University level, and will need to demonstrate an appropriate level of English language proficiency. 

New for 2023

English Choral Tradition Programme (Dates tbc)

The University of Cambridge is renowned as an historic centre of choral excellence. Its many collegiate choirs have, for centuries, maintained a tradition which is regarded as one of the United Kingdom’s richest and most distinctive cultural assets. Thus Cambridge is the ideal place to explore this tradition; and this programme provides a unique opportunity to immerse oneself in the history, repertoire and practice of the English Choral Tradition. More details to follow.

Virtual Courses

This summer we are also running our Virtual Pre-University Summer Programme, aimed at 16 to 18 year olds keen to get a taste for undergraduate study. Bookings for this virtual programme will open by the end of February. Register your interest here.
