Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)


Studying postgraduate courses in 2020-2021 – Michaelmas term to be delivered remotely

Our course delivery format for the majority of our postgraduate and MSt qualifications is changing for the Michaelmas term. For the academic year 20-21, our postgraduate and MSt progammes will initially be delivered remotely with face-to-face teaching returning when the situation becomes viable. This means we can continue to deliver high-quality courses and ensure our qualifications remain accessible to our global community of learners.

ICE has been delivering online courses for over a decade and you can be confident that you will receive the academically rigorous teaching and collaborative peer-to-peer learning that you would expect from studying at Cambridge.

While the mode of course delivery is changing for the beginning of our postgraduate and MSt qualifications, our courses will still begin in the autumn term and the curricula will remain the same. Our courses are predominantly assessed by essays and coursework and will continue to be assessed in this way. Where other assessment methods are in place, they will be adapted to the online environment.

We are confident that our move to remote delivery will continue to support students to best achieve their learning goals during these changing times.
We look forward to welcoming you to ICE.
