University of Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education Tuition Fee Bursaries for part-time study 2019-2020

The University of Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education (ICE) is offering a fantastic opportunity to apply for a full tuition fee bursary for their Undergraduate Certificate courses.

If you are a current or recent student of the WEA in the Eastern Region then you may be eligible to apply. The bursary covers the full cost of studying a Certificate course.

Certificate courses are part-time over one year at first-year undergraduate level. Most courses are open to anyone, and you don't need any special qualifications to apply.

The WEA Bursary

The scheme gives two full fee bursaries for courses commencing in autumn 2019 and finishing in summer 2020.

Our courses are open to anyone and you don't need any qualifications to apply. You might choose to pursue your interest in Creative Writing or Film Studies, or a course in Business and Management or Coaching.

Bursaries cover tuition fees only: students should know any extra costs involved in studying, such as travel to Madingley Hall, books etc. are not covered.
