iX Semester is a first-of-its-kind program that enables students to gain crucial 21st-century professional skills as well as internship experience. The program is designed to be a supplement to a student’s college experience, providing them with additional skills, work experience, and support to enhance their future career options.
During the part-time semester-length program, students engage in a live skill-based course that is then followed by an international internship with ongoing support from course instructors.
Before joining iX, Nicola ran a multi-million dollar education innovation investment initiative for one of South Africa's largest financial services groups. Previously, Nicola convened the MPhil in Inclusive Innovation—an interdisciplinary, research-based Masters degree that leads to the development of sustainable, social impact solutions for challenges in Africa at the University of Cape Town—where she is still Adjunct faculty.
Yes! Academic credit is available through our school of record, the University of South Florida. Students wishing to maximize their learning and development throughout their iX Semester program are encouraged to enroll in the additional for-credit course from USF. The for-credit course is designed to provide academic content and guided career and professional development for undergraduate students in a real-world, professional context. Transcripts will be issued by USF after the program. iX Semester participants who elect to undertake the program for credit will enroll and pay the additional course fee of $375 to iX in their enrollment portal.
We encourage students to first speak with their academic and study abroad advisors prior to applying to the program to discuss transfer credit and the approval process. Once they have completed any university-specific steps, students can then apply directly to iX Semester on this website. We will also notify home institutions of students’ intentions to enroll in the program after their application is complete.
