iXperience Accelerate Lisbon is an intense 6-week career-acceleration, accredited program for ambitious students who wish to learn industry-relevant skills, and boost their CVs with an impactful internship, all while exploring one of Europe's best-kept secrets.
iXperience Accelerate in Lisbon offers three course options:
Full Stack Coding
You'll hit the ground running with high-intensity classes that push you to learn in a boot-camp style environment. Courses blend foundation theory with practical skills. You'll also be surrounded by like-minded students who are just as hungry to learn and grow as you are.
After two weeks of training, 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. You'll still have class and plenty of support from your teaching staff, who'll serve as guides as you navigate your internship project.
Most excitingly, do all of this while exploring the beautiful and historic city of Lisbon, Portugal, with like-minded students from universities across the road – many of whom you'll stay friends with long after the program finishes. We arrange excursions designed to help you maximize your time in the city with foodie, cultural and natural experiences.
Forge lasting connections and join an active alumni of over 1000 graduates – many of whom have gone on to work for big firms like Facebook, Apple, Uber, Accenture, Bain, McKinsey and more.
