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. We will be offering a choice of over 100 one-week courses across four weeks, allowing you to combine courses from a wide range of subject areas in the fields of Arts and Humanities, Sciences, Business Studies and Global Studies.

You can opt to focus on courses in the same stream, or select different subjects. Either way, you can build a 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. Complementing the courses is a series of two daily plenary lectures, which explore new ideas in a wide range of topics.

Further details about the Summer Programme will be released in the coming weeks. You can register your interest here.

Stay in a Cambridge College

To add to your academic experience you can book to stay in one of the Cambridge Colleges, close to the teaching site and the vibrant city centre. While staying in College you will have the opportunity to meet fellow students studying other subjects and explore the beautiful grounds.

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 including university students, professionals, retirees and those with other experience, regardless of educational background.

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. The standard for non-natives is a minimum overall band score of 6.5 or above on the IELTS academic scale, or an equivalent qualification.

Virtual Courses

Our programme of Virtual courses is still to be announced, but will include two two-week terms of a Virtual Pre-University Programme for 16-18 year olds. You can register your interest here.
