Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)


Fees and Bursaries


Tuition fees are listed on each course page. Fees vary according to course format.

Accommodation at Madingley Hall is available to students at a rate of £60 per night for a single room, including breakfast. If two students wish to share a double/twin room, the rate reduces to £50 per student.

For residential courses, a deposit of 15% is taken upon booking. Bookings are not confirmed until the deposit has been paid. The balance of payment will be required two weeks before the course start date.

For weekly courses, day schools and shorter, the full fee is required to confirm a place on the course.


We aim to promote the widest possible access for learners to the University of Cambridge. However, we know that for many prospective students, paying for the costs of studying can be challenging. We are particularly keen to provide financial support for students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds, underrepresented groups in university-led higher education and people who have not previously studied at university-level.

To this end, we have some bursary schemes available to help remove or reduce this potential barrier to learning with us. Please see our bursaries webpage for further details.
