Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)


Our undergraduate qualifications will be delivered entirely online during the 2024-25 academic year. This will enable students to study with the University of Cambridge from anywhere in the world and learn flexibly whilst still being able to undertake family and work commitments.

The full course will be delivered through a variety of online modes.

It is our aim to provide an academically engaging, pastorally supportive and socially stimulating experience.  Our courses will contain a mix of live teaching sessions delivered securely through an online platform like Zoom (these sessions will be recorded, but where possible we hope students will attend in real-time) and pre-recorded materials and activities that will be accessed through our Virtual Learning Environment (a Moodle VLE). Peer collaboration and the development of professional and social networks will be facilitated through virtual discussion groups and other educational technologies.

You will have access to a range of electronic learning resources via the University. Technology support will be provided by our Technology and Learning Team and there will be orientation sessions to introduce you to the VLE.

We offer an accessible and inclusive gateway into the University of Cambridge for learners seeking to engage with higher education for the first time or returning after an extended break, or for learners who are seeking professional development or exploring new career possibilities. Our courses bring together a community of peer learners who enrich each other's learning experience. We are committed to supporting all learners to engage in education throughout their life and are proud of our record in helping to support learners to meet their educational objectives.
