iXperience Cape Town – Future-Focused Summer Courses and Internships

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
Learned to code from scratch... although I’d suggest doing some basic coding before the course as I stayed late the first two weeks to catch up. Can be done with no prior experience, I am proof.

A Look Back

* What did you like most about the program?
  • Approachable tutor
  • Good internship opportunities
  • Cool location
* What could be improved?
  • More free time.
* What do you know now that you wish you knew before going on this program? I wish I’d had a basic understanding of coding prior to the course as I am taking away a good lump of knowledge but people with a more advanced level of knowledge also seemed to improve in leaps and bounds. I would recommend this to basic and proficient users.

The Avid Adventurer
The wardrobe you packed was better suited for a semester of camping than club hopping. Outdoorsy, you might forgo a crazy night out for an early all-day adventure. You'd rather take in the rich culture of an old town than the metropolis of a modern city, but for you getting off the grid is ideal.

Comments: This was a challenging course which stretched me intellectually. The field trips were really cool and with a good variety so there was something for everyone. The teachers and TA’s were all really knowledgable and helpful. There was no formal assessment but there was an end of course presentation.
