Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)

One of the Institute of Continuing Education’s strategic priorities is to develop and promote opportunities to study at the University of Cambridge to a broad range of adult learners. This includes people from a variety of professional backgrounds, those who have never experienced higher education before, those who are studying for personal interest including into pre and post retirement and those whose financial circumstances might prove a barrier to study.

The work, life, study balance

We recognise that many adult learners are balancing competing calls on their time and finances. The Institute of Continuing Education (ICE) has long offered an alternative route to a Cambridge education through its part-time and flexible learning options. Many of our courses – from short one day introductory sessions all the way through to University of Cambridge Undergraduate and Postgraduate courses – are available through part-time study. This enables learners to maintain personal and professional commitments while also studying at ICE.

Financial support

We know that for many potential adult students, paying for the costs of studying at a leading university like Cambridge can be challenging. We have a number of financial support options to facilitate access to its programs. These options include bursaries, concessions, and external funding opportunities, ensuring that individuals receive financial assistance for their education to help remove or reduce this potential barrier to learning with us.
