Having already studied at Cambridge, you will be well aware of the value of learning - but do you know about Cambridge's opportunities for further study?

Institute of Continuing Education

The University’s Institute of Continuing Education (ICE) was created over 140 years ago to offer lifelong learning opportunities - by extending the University’s academic resources, research and knowledge - to adults in the wider community. Today ICE has headquarters at 16th-century Madingley Hall, just outside Cambridge, and runs a wide variety of short courses and part-time programmes, including part-time University qualifications.

Online learning

With several thousand students enrolling each year, ICE is a part of the University that can benefit you throughout your adult life. It also offers a growing number of online courses, meaning you can study at Cambridge wherever you are in the world.

Remember CAMCard holders are entitled to a 25% discount on course fees when booking short courses at ICE. This includes day schools, weekends, weekly classes and online courses. Find out more

Summer Programmes

Every July and August, the International Programmes team at ICE organises a variety of open-access Summer Programmes taught by leading Cambridge academics and guest subject specialists. The programmes attract adults of all ages and backgrounds from across the globe. You can stay in one of the Colleges or apply for a non-residential place.

Executive Education

An alternative model of learning is Executive Education at the Cambridge Judge Business School, which designs and delivers high impact leadership and management development programmes to professionals and organisations from around the world. A 20% discount on the Open Programmes portfolio for University of Cambridge alumni is now available.
