We know that being a recent graduate and searching for a job is tough, and we want to make our education programs accessible to the brightest South Africans. That's why we've opened up a limited number of spots in our Cape Town program to talented students who are driven, hard working, and passionate about improving their career prospects.
Who knows—maybe your first job offer will be from iXperience itself!
"iX is an intense and fun learning course. I've built an app, which is evidence of something I can do and languages that I've learned. It's another thing to add to my resume."
—Zafiera Davids, 2018 scholarship student
iX is no vacation. You'll hit the ground running with high-intensity classes that will push you to learn faster than you thought possible. Our courses blend foundation theory with practical skills, so you'll be learning things you can actually use—not just cram for the test. The good news: you'll be surrounded by like-minded students who are just as hungry to learn and grow as you are.
After two weeks of training, the real fun begins. You'll be matched with a local company and tasked to work on one of their projects. This gives you a taste of professional life—as well as concrete deliverables you can add to your resume to show future employers. Don't worry: you'll still have class and plenty of support from your teaching staff, who'll serve as guides as you navigate your internship project.
