Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)


Each Tuesday showcases the cutting-edge research of the University of Cambridge, focused on a specific study area – from medieval culture to futuristic materials and magical literature. With morning sessions from 10am to 1pm and afternoon classes from 2pm to 5pm. You can choose to attend just the morning or afternoon or, as the programme is carefully curated to spark imaginations across the day, why not join us for both? Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided with light meals available to purchase.
