"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

Intense learning meets practical applications.

iX programs integrate classroom learning with high impact practical experience, so you gain the skills to boost your resume.

First 2 weeks: Intense Bootcamp

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.

Next 4 weeks: Class & Practical Experience Blend

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.
