Day in the life of an iX student

Click through the tabs below to get an idea of what you will do on the daily.

Waking up as a new iX student, you'll find yourself in the iX Accommodation - located in a trendy and scenic part of the city.

8 oclock 0cdbec0079d1ba45e8f42e0cae18835cd805a3c4de1fad91002b193fed6dd096

Whether you have a morning or afternoon class, it’s best to get up early and seize the day. Stroll down to a local cafe and get your caffeine fix. You might even run into your teacher getting theirs too.

8 30 oclock d492a1b84e77b9041794cacaca1eaeeda30fed1af5b2248030870fa2ddc027cd

Time to head to campus. Spend 3 hours learning from an industry expert teacher, with like-minded students. Share and present your ideas, with hands-on help from our teaching assistants.

12 oclock 429aab5b188d04d30d3bf272470aa0f6fcb3ca541efedee1d93556d64099f383

After class, apply your learnings and perfect your course project. Head out for a bite to eat and brainstorm with your classmates, or grab a seat in the student lounge to merge your collective brain power.

5 oclock 6f21d9c1f12d8480ff862f9d5ac39594d05a37cdf533834b22ddcfe8af82185b

Check your iX calendar for evening electives. Join a local cooking class in the city, or attend an iX professional development workshop – whatever floats your boat.

"My classroom was a glass box above a central café where students were studying together and chatting to CEOs on their coffee break."

Mark Steelman, iX 2017.

If you feel a little nervous about this bit, don't. The iX team, your teachers, and internship managers will offer endless support to reach your full potential.

9 oclock 0275487b09a2d747a7a9d4ba920076f922e55922ade2da9eadb802e089da4aa3

As you’re with one company for four weeks, it’s easier to deep-dive into your assigned project. Seek out the people in charge and spend time asking questions, dedicating yourself to applying your newly learned skill in a professional environment.

5 oclock 6f21d9c1f12d8480ff862f9d5ac39594d05a37cdf533834b22ddcfe8af82185b

By now, you’re familiar with the city, and probably keen to explore on your own steam. Spend evenings soaking in a sunset or hitting up all the foodie hotspots you can squeeze in. There are still occasional electives, and our iX team members are always arranging get togethers, so join the crew or ride solo. You do you.

Mark steelman e25178c83c961b6d1633365234a8c124808562914c1c348c054fd3571f5775cc

"I had never been in a work environment that made me so happy and motivated to work with full effort."

You’ve had a full and intense week of class, so pressure’s off on the weekend. You can also pick from awesome iX excursions during course weekends.

8 oclock 0cdbec0079d1ba45e8f42e0cae18835cd805a3c4de1fad91002b193fed6dd096

It's time to get ready for your weekend excursion. In Cape Town, you might hit the waves for a group surf lesson, snorkel with seals, or take part in a cultural tour that might involve learning some slick dance moves. Whatever it is, you can be sure that it’s going to be exhilarating.

2 oclock 27b69d6449e17152ca650d767f68386be8178ab54645c751499a52556a4d1033

Free time means exploring with your new friends, catching up with family and friends back home, or unwinding before another week of learning and growth.

8 oclock 0cdbec0079d1ba45e8f42e0cae18835cd805a3c4de1fad91002b193fed6dd096

If you’re living life as an intern, weekends mean total freedom! Head out of the city and visit world renowned wine farms, or arrange a trip to another town along the coast. If your folks are visiting, it’s also an opportunity to show off the city you’ve been calling home for the last few weeks.

Mark steelman e25178c83c961b6d1633365234a8c124808562914c1c348c054fd3571f5775cc

"I went surfing, ate at a food market that seemingly had food from every culture, and went to a beer festival filled with many thriving local breweries – all during my first weekend."

"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.
