"The experience was unlike anything I've done before. The city of Tel Aviv is a great time and we got to really explore it. Overall, the experience was a mix of vacation, work and school, but I enjoyed every second of it. I made friends I hope to have forever and I encourage everyone to do iX. "

Beach-driven lifestyle

Play and relax, day or night.

Tel Aviv is world-renowned for its beaches and the many restaurants and bars that line them. All are within a 10-15 minute ride on an electric scooter or bike from your accommodation. The beaches stretch along the coastline, games persist into the late night, and sports of all kinds are available on the daily.


Hummus and falafel for all.

The Israelis take their food seriously (though hummus and falafel are taken especially seriously). Dine at one of the many food markets, or share a platter of specialities with new friends: shakshuka, rugelach, ice cream (in hummus flavour) and iced coffee. You’ll want to eat it all.

Ancient History

A city steeped in famous history.

Tel Aviv has the historic marvels you’d expect from an ancient city. The centuries-old Bauhaus architecture of the ‘White City’ is a famed UNESCO World Heritage Site, while those seeking culture might visit one of 230 museums (more per capita than any other city in the world).


World-famous music and experiences.

A thriving and diverse nightlife, as well as the beauty of the Mediterranean Sea make Tel Aviv popular with international entrepreneurs, artists, and laid-back locals. Make lifelong memories experiencing the vibrant food and music scene with your classmates.
