Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)


Our Virtual Summer Festival brings together over 85 one-week courses. Aimed at adults, and designed to introduce you to new topics or further your studies in familiar disciplines, you can combine a range of subjects or select several courses in the same stream.

Taught through pre-recorded sessions, our team of leading Cambridge academics and invited speakers guide you through your chosen subjects. Each course also offers a daily discussion forum, giving you the opportunity to share ideas, pose questions and explore the subject further. 

Courses cost just £149 each and are capped at 50 places to maximise interaction via forums between students and course directors. Anyone signing up for one or more courses also gets free access to our series of over 60 Festival Talks.


Week 1: 28 June - 2 July

Week 2: 5 - 9 July

Week 3: 12 - 16 July

Week 4: 19 - 23 July

Week 5: 26 - 30 July

The University's Virtual Summer Festival of Learning reflects our mission 'to contribute to society through the pursuit of education, learning and research at the highest international levels of excellence'.
