"I started Career Semester because it's the experience I wish I'd had in college."

Rafi Khan, Yale University Graduate
Career Semester Co-founder
"I'm grateful for my university education in that it gave me a great foundation of knowledge, but I often felt frustrated that I had to hustle so hard to gain the skills for the career I dreamed about. I designed Career Semester as the perfect college complement for the ambitious, forward-thinking student. I wanted to create an experience that prepares students for the global future, gives them real-world experience, and inspires them to crave challenges and venture out of their comfort zones. It's the experience I wish I'd had in college."
Career Semester is the brainchild of two internationally-recognized education companies seeking to create a one-of-a-kind career-boosting program for highly-motivated students around the world. One part coursework, one part internship, and a whole lot of fun, Career Semester enhances employability by demonstrating the application of desired 21st century skill sets like data science, digital marketing, and web development. All while offering guaranteed internship placements, live classes led by experts in the field, and lifetime access to an international network of alumni.

iXperience started in 2013 as a study abroad coding bootcamp that would bridge the gap between academia and industry. Since then, it's grown into a global operation that has helped more than 1800 students accelerate their careers in a variety of high-growth industries, from data science and web development to investment finance and digital marketing.

What our programs stand for.

Why are you here? What do you want to experience? How do you want to contribute to others? These are the questions that guide the journeys of our students and core team.
We challenge our team to be disciplined learners who continually evolve, step-by-step, day-by-day. At Career Semester, it's OK to make mistakes—it's not OK to not learn from them.
We believe what makes learning and life ultimately rewarding are the people you share your time with. We focus on creating spaces where it's easy to foster authentic connections.

We're committed to improving access to education.

We offer need-based financial aid and scholarships to enable access to our programs.
