Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)


Meraymi Ibrahim

Meraymi studied the Undergraduate Diploma in Creative Writing in 2017


I moved from the Middle East back to the UK in pursuit of education. I have always wanted to be a writer, but lacked the guidance, criticism and freedom to express myself to the max. Every month I make the four-hour journey down from the North West, to attend classes at ICE. I am hoping when I complete my Creative Writing Diploma to apply to more writing courses, as everything and everyone I have met during my time at Madingley have been so valuable. I plan to switch from a career in law to journalism and eventually write short stories and a novel.



Peter Newton

Peter has studied numerous Creative Writing qualifications at ICE since 2014, most recently the Undergraduate Diploma in Creative Writing: Advanced Non-Fiction


When I retired, I was determined to keep seeking out serious intellectual stimulation and show my six grandchildren that although my hair may be grey, my mind is just as capable as it always was. As such, through ICE I’ve completed several short courses, a Diploma in International Development and, most recently, a Certificate in Creative Writing. The Institute doesn’t compromise in its pursuit of the highest standards and the courses are filled with interesting, committed people of all ages from many different cultures. Studying at ICE has sharpened me up, reignited dormant interests and given me a context in which to learn new tricks. Who wouldn’t want that?
