Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)


ICE offers a wide-range of part-time courses and qualifications which are University of Cambridge awards. The majority of these awards are referred to as ‘non-member awards’ as ICE students are not required to matriculate (i.e. become a college member).

The regulations which govern ICE non-matriculated students are outlined in the Student Handbook.

Many of the Institute’s policies key into overarching University of Cambridge policies, but in some instances local policies have been developed to support the particular context in which ICE students study. 

The following ICE programmes are non-member awards:

ICE also offers part-time postgraduate degrees where students are matriculated and become a member of a college. Matriculated students can access a range of academic and pastoral support via their college and subscribe to the University’s Statutes and Ordinances.
