About our short courses

Our short courses are taught in small, informal groups by academics who are expert not only in their subjects but also in teaching students of all ages and experience.

Nearly all take place at Madingley Hall, a 16th-century manor house three miles to the west of Cambridge with state-of-the-art tuition and study facilities. The Hall is easily accessible by road with ample free parking, and is situated in seven acres of landscaped gardens.

Weekend courses run from Friday evening to Sunday lunchtime, and include meals from our award-winning kitchen. You can choose to stay at the Hall in comfortable, en-suite accommodation for the duration of your course, or attend as a non-resident.

Weekly courses typically last for five weeks, with one two-hour session every week. All are supported by our virtual learning environment (VLE), allowing you to download course material, contact your tutor and talk to fellow students via the web at a time and place that’s convenient to you.

Day schools are designed to provide an insight into the various academic disciplines taught at Madingley Hall. If you’re thinking of applying for a Certificate course, or are simply interested in exploring a new subject area, then a day school could be for you.
