The University of Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education (ICE) is now inviting applications for their 2013/14 programme of part-time University courses in Archaeology, Historic Environment and Local History.
The courses are designed for researchers, volunteers, those working with their communities, and anyone with an interest in the field.
About the courses
The following part-time courses are offered at undergraduate level:
Archaeology: Certificate, Diploma and Advanced Diploma
Historic Environment (landscape archaeology and garden history): Certificates and Advanced Diploma
Local History: Diploma and Advanced Diploma.
Certificate courses are open to all, special qualifications are not needed to apply. Diplomas offer the opportunity to study the subject in greater depth, while Advanced Diplomas are research-based courses of supervised independent study – so are accessible to students from across the UK and beyond. All courses lead to full University of Cambridge awards.
The Certificate and Diploma courses in Archaeology and Local History are taught through weekly evening classes, while the two Certificates in Historic Environment are taught over six weekends throughout the year, with online support, making them suitable to study from a distance.
Teaching takes place at Madingley Hall, an historic 16th-century country house on the outskirts of Cambridge.
See http://www.ice.cam.ac.uk/certificates-and-diplomas?ref=awards for course specifications, fees and information on how to apply.
Bursaries and student loans
As in previous years, ICE is offering a number of bursaries to self-financing students. Applicants who are new to higher education, new to ICE, or who are state-funded teachers will be eligible to apply for a bursary. Those who are studying for their first university qualification may also have access to part-time student loans.
The deadline for applications to both courses is 9 September 2013.
