MSts and part-time Postgraduate Certificates and Diplomas
The Institute of Continuing Education (ICE) offers opportunities for further study, on a part-time basis. It offers a range of credit and non-credit programmes, qualifications and education designed for anyone who wishes to extend their initial study, update their knowledge and skills or to undertake career development or change.
Please note that referees will be asked to comment on your ability to manage different responsibilities simultaneously.
Letter From Employer
You will need to provide a letter from your employer (if any) confirming that you may have time off, if necessary and as required, to attend the University for the whole duration of your course. This will be required for part-time study only. It is generally not permitted to remain in employment whilst studying full time at Cambridge.
As a part-time research student you will be charged a reduced University Composition Fee for each year of your course. In order to be admitted to your course you must provide evidence of an ability to cover your finances for the entire duration of the course.
You are not required to show evidence of maintenance costs but you should make provision for travel and accommodation expenses at various times during your course.
Our part-time programmes offer a more flexible way to study for a research degree at the University of Cambridge - meaning you can fit your studies around your career and other commitments.
Part-time study can be ideal for those who are looking to gain a postgraduate qualification without leaving employment and wish to develop their careers while they continue earning; or for those who are home-based for whatever reason and wish to develop their skills.
