Gives helpful info.

City highlights.

Adventure, everywhere.

Cape Town has it all: mountains, beaches, urban jungle and more. Whatever you’re looking for, you’ll find it.

Rich history and culture.

South Africa’s oldest city has had a turbulent past, which has created a flourishingly diverse present.

Thriving start-up hub.

The Cape lifestyle has it all for entrepreneurs, who flock here from around the world to bring their ideas to life.

Very affordable.

Favorable exchange rates to the dollar mean South Africa is much cheaper than many other destinations.

Study abroad's best-kept secret.

Affectionately known as the Mother City, Cape Town is South Africa's oldest city. Cape Town is rated as one of the most beautiful cities in the world with a backdrop of flat-topped Table Mountain juxtaposed by the sweep of the Atlantic Ocean in the foreground. There is no other city in the world that allows you to live an adventure so close to urban life.

Start your mornings or end your days with a hike or a surf, before walking through the bustling town to take class or start your internship. ‘Work hard, play hard’ is the mantra of our Cape Town campus.

See Cape Town through the eyes of iX students.

Adventure meets bustling city.

Below are activities that iX students did in 2023, which we captured on video. Some are included, others aren't. Excursions change from year to year.

Accommodation & co-working space.

Your home for iX Summer Abroad is in the heart of the city's trendiest areas, where you'll have incredible views, plush rooms and the best that the city has to offer on your doorstep.

Neighbourgood Hill.

Neighbourgood Hill is located in the vibrant Green Point area, which is known for its trendy cafés, restaurants and bars. The accommodation is newly built, meaning ultra modern living spaces, including a swimming pool, fully equipped self-catering kitchens and 24-hour security. It is walking distance to Cape Town Stadium, Green Point Park and various beaches.

Neighbourgood Cape Quarter.

The iX classroom space is in Neighbourgood Cape Quarter, a premium coworking space a short walk from the student accommodation. From the third floor space, views over Cape Town accompany every class, and several of Cape Town’s best cafés and eateries are just downstairs. The hybrid working life is at its best here!

Sample schedule: do what interests you most.

Things change from year to year of course – this is to give you an idea of how things come together.

Health & Safety is our #1 priority.

Our approach.

Our global operations team takes a data-driven approach to measure every aspect of our service, from accommodation incidents to health and safety responses. We thoroughly vet every housing and excursion provider we partner with to ensure compliance with international study abroad safety, and quality standards. Our in-house legal team creates standardized contracts that protect iXperience and our students. All iX campuses are COVID compliant.

Parents who visited iX Abroad.

Each year, we welcome dozens of parents who visit their children in Cape Town and Lisbon. In this video, we caught up with a parent who visited iX Abroad, and asked what their experience was like in Cape Town.

More Cape Town experiences.

Climbing Lion's Head.

We had an unbelievable hike with the Cape Town students this morning to the top of Lion's head. It’s so inspiring to see how much the group is gaining from the experience so far, and we’re only at the beginning.

Surfing at Muizenberg beach.

Shakamahala dudes. No but really, we had the MOST incredible time surfing a few days ago with the Cape Town crew at Muizenberg Beach - and just had to share the good vibes. Here’s to getting out of the comfort zone and many more adventures ahead.

Touring Langa.

A few weeks ago our Cape Town students visited an informal settlement on the outskirts of the city called Langa. Exposure to different cultures/socio-economic circumstances is a core pillar of what we do here at iX. We can only create true impact when we have awareness. Here’s how it went…
