Course project

Real-world application is a process that allows our students to apply what they have learned in the classroom to real-world problems. This problem-based learning is an instructional method of hands-on active learning centred on the investigation of complex, real-world problems, and the application of the classroom theory to the resolution of these problems.

Industry and company needs change fast. This means that the class projects vary over time, and from course to course. Specific class projects cannot be guaranteed, so during the first week of the program, you will be briefed on the project identified for the course and what the outcomes are.

Expert teachers who care about you as an individual.

We limit class sizes and empower teachers to give individualized support and feedback to every student. You’ll gain invaluable perspective, and a mentor who will advise you throughout the program.

Unlike many other online programs, you'll have support from your teachers and teaching assistants throughout the day so you're never stuck on a problem for too long.

Introducing the iX Abroad Program.

iX courses focus on rigor, engagement, and community.
Rigorous & practical

Your class projects will be connected to industry, in a format that you can show future employers.

You'll have class daily, along with in-depth readings and assignments that will challenge you to learn quickly.

Small class sizes

We cap classes at 30 students, which means you'll get to know your classmates and teachers individually.

We teach engaging, live seminar-style classes—not massive, streamed lectures. Expect lots of discussion and group work.

Frequent feedback

Your head teacher and TAs will review your work and give you actionable feedback to improve.

They'll also provide guidance and support for your project, helping you achieve more than you could in ordinary working environments.

Earn a certificate and showcase your work.

You can share your Course Certificates in the Certifications section of your LinkedIn profile, on printed resumes, CVs, or other documents.
