Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)


Due to the ongoing uncertainty around coronavirus and the ability to implement social distancing, we have decided to cancel all face-to-face short courses at the University of Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education (ICE) until at least April 2021. Students who are due to attend courses during this time will be contacted by our Lifelong Learning Team. 

However, you are invited to join adults from all over the world to be taught by leading academics on a remotely-delivered short course here at ICE. We offer courses in subjects ranging from Creative Writing to Coaching and Business in a variety of formats, there is something for everyone regardless of whether you’re studying for professional development or personal enrichment.

Please keep an eye on our website for the latest information.
