Hone your new skills at an internship.

Unlike at university, you'll have the chance to hone your skills in a professional environment immediately after your course. We've partnered with local companies large and small to create internships that will maximize your impact and professional growth.

I knew I would be leaving Cape Town as a new person — a person that would fearlessly pursue something she believes in. A person that would go the extra mile to bring something great to the world.

"Being able to build a functional app in a matter of weeks seemed impossible at the start, but iX made it happen for every student. Cape Town is a city that stole my heart and I only wish I could've had more time to be immersed in it longer."

Jessie Osterman, NYU '18

"iXperience was a magical summer that could never be replicated. I was able to sky dive (twice!), bungee jump (twice!), shark cage dive, and sand board for the first time!

"I learned more than I ever imagined, explored one of the most beautiful cities in the world. iX gave me a chance to escape the familiar - I never imagined I would jump off the tallest bungee jumping bridge in the world or get face-to-face with Great Whites.
