Help us to make Cambridge education accessible to all

The University of Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education (ICE) is the oldest continuing education university department in the country. Our purpose at ICE is to provide accessible, flexible and meaningful education to adults throughout their lives, whether they’re studying for personal, social, societal or professional reasons.

Accessible and affordable forms of higher education have never been needed more as learners seek to engage with safe ways to study in order to renew skills to respond to emerging economic challenges or learn as part of a wider approach to personal enrichment and mental wellbeing.

We recognise that the costs of studying at University can be challenging and we are continually striving to remove or reduce this potential barrier to learning with us. If you would like to support our aim to prioritise and enable learning throughout life and to promote the widest possible access for learners to the University, you can do so by making a donation to the Institute.

Your donation will help to cover the cost of study for a student who couldn’t otherwise afford to do so, recruit and develop academic staff, and improve our facilities and grounds for students at Madingley Hall.

All gifts, large or small, are very gratefully received.
