City highlights.

Bustling European city.

Lisbon has emerged as one of Europe’s top summer destinations, with a laid-back lifestyle and amazing historic beauty.

Rich history and culture.

Being a seafaring powerhouse brought much of the Old World right to Lisbon’s door - and it’s still visible today.

Thriving start-up hub.

Lisbon’s reputation as an affordable, tech-rich, investment-friendly city has created a hotspot for innovation.

Breathtaking nature.

The cold Atlantic waters and hot Sahara winds have carved a spectacular landscape on which Lisbon stands.

Europe's new top travel destination.

Study, explore and work in a country once thought to be the edge of the known world. Stay with fellow iXers at a central location in the vibrant city. Visit museums and galleries, surf the Atlantic swell, and experience the famed cuisine of one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.

"The Management Consulting course was one of the best educational decisions I have ever made, and pivotal in my following career moves. My time at this program laid down the foundation for me to get a place as a Summer Business Analyst at McKinsey London. The biggest learning outcome I got was a growth mindset and after graduation, instead of playing it safe, I leapt into starting my own company."

See Lisbon 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.

Where you'll stay.

iX students in Lisbon stay at Bluesock (recently renamed Room007), a modern hostel in the historic heart of the Portuguese capital. It’s known for its social rooftop with incredible views and excellent facilities. Just off of Avenida da Liberdade, all of Lisbon’s central landmarks are within walking distance - just be sure to pick up pastéis de nata on your way!

Where you'll work.

Heden Intendente hosts our students in a newly-built space near Intendente metro station. Nearby are restored old buildings with preserved facades, adorned in traditional Portuguese tiles. The coworking space offers designated areas for iX students, full-time technical support, and nearby incredible eateries.

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.

See for yourself how iX works 24/7 to keep students healthy and safe.

Parents who visited iX Abroad.

Each year, we welcome dozens of parents who visit their children in each of our incredible campus cities. In this video, we caught up with parents who visited iX Abroad, and asked what their experience was like in Cape Town, South Africa and Lisbon, Portugal.

More Lisbon experiences.

Surfing at Costa da Caparica.

Visit Costa da Caparica and discover all the natural wonders and the authenticity of the people living in this small city in the south bank of Tagus river. Known in Portugal for its wonderful beaches, this city hides a natural treasure that will take your breath away – the Costa da Caparica Fossil Cliff Protected Landscape.

Coastal Cruise.

See Lisbon from a different perspective during a Tagus River cruise at sunset, undoubtedly the most magical time to see the city. From the boat, you can enjoy unobstructed views of Belém Tower (Torre de Belém), Lisbon Cathedral (Sé de Lisboa), Castelo de São Jorge (St. George’s Castle), and many more Lisbon attractions.

Exploring Sintra.

Sintra is a charming Portuguese town situated within the cooling hills of the Serra De Sintra. Hidden among its majestic pine forest, you will discover whimsical palaces, extravagant villas and the ruins of a 10th-century Moorish castle.
