Residential Weekend Courses - Book now!

We're delighted to announce our series of Weekend Courses running from now until July. Courses from September 2022 until July 2023 will be announced in June.

With both residential and non-residential places available, our courses offer the opportunity to learn from some of our finest academics in the inspirational setting of Madingley Hall. Over the course of each weekend there will be plenty of opportunity to get to know your tutor and fellow students, take part in lively classroom discussion and explore the beautiful landscaped gardens.

Who can attend?

Designed for all audiences, these weekend courses are open to anyone over the age of 18. Although they are taught at approximately first-year undergraduate level, no academic qualifications are required and most courses are suitable for students who are new to the subject. Please ensure that you complete any required reading before the course starts to enable you to get the best experience from your course.
