    A great experience

    Avocademy was something I found while I was going through the Coursera Google UX program and it was such an amazing choice to switch. The mentorship I got was amazing and feedback was consistent and thorough. They are constantly updating their materials and making the course better and have professionals coming in to provide real world insights in their speaker series. It’s a fantastic resource for the students.

    So far, REALLY good

    I am going to be finishing my run in Foundations for Avocademy here in a couple of weeks. The course is split up into 6 modules that guide you through *lots* of reading, videos and other literature, which prepare you for Activities. Activities are based on what you've learned and have incredibly clear instructions. 

    When you complete an Activity, you submit it to the community Slack channel where it is reviewed and approved by a Mentor. On the Slack channel you can also ask questi...

    Avocademy isn't just a course, it's a community!

    Avocademy is a great place to learn UX/UI design! The foundations course taught me relevant, important information about the design process and the career jumpstart program gave me experiences with real clients that I was able to put on my portfolio.  The community at Avocademy is also amazing. The mentors really care about the students and everyone is just really supportive and transparent. If you're looking for a UI/UX course, I HIGHLY suggest Avocademy!

    One of the best decisions I have ever made!

    As a fresh college graduate with a background in Computer Science and Digital Arts, I had a huge lack of self confidence when it came to landing my first UX/UI related job. Career Jumpstart provided ways to help build my portfolio by giving me project opportunities where I was able to work with real life outside clients and a design team. On top of that, through great mentorship, I was able to gain valuable feedback and improve the way I was approaching interviews because honestly, I was...

    Career Jumpstart!!

    I'm so glad and grateful I was able to job search with the Career Jumpstart program! Job searching is such a stressful and confusing process, and I truly don't think I could've done it myself. Let alone find a job in a month! The online modules had such helpful and essential info that prepped me on every step of the process, and mentors were always available to provide additional personal help via Slack, messages, or calls. I mainly worked with Maca (aka bugged her whenever ANYTHING happ...

    Best Choice Ever

    I cannot recommend this bootcamp enough. Not only is it affordable, but also hands-on. All of the mentors go out of their way to help the students. There is a sense of personal connection that you won't get from other bootcamps. Even the founder is extremely involved and committed to helping the students. You will not find that with other bootcamps. It seriously has changed my life. If you are thinking about taking this boot camp, do it. You will thank yourself six months from now!

    UX Designer

    This program is amazing! After graduating from my Foundations course with Avocademy, the Career Jumpstart allowed me the opportunity to work on real projects with real clients and collaborate with other designers. It wasn't only the fact that it was so hands-on, but the guidance that I had from Maca was exceptional. She was there every step of the way, and we never lost that personal touch that makes a world of difference especially in an online setting. I'm thankful to have learned all ...

    UI/UX Foundations

    Overall, this bootcamp was great especially the fact you pay a lot less than compared to other bootcamps. It is a lot of work but it's a great way to learn the essentials of UX if you're a beginner. There were some hiccups during the program such as timezone issues and mentors not being able to jump on calls as frequently as I had hoped but Maca and her team were very receptive to hearing feedback and making adjustments to their course and mentorships to be able to accommodate everyone a...

    Quick and Affordable

    The UX/UI design foundations course was very hands on, quick, and affordable. They provide you with resources, videos, zoom calls with mentors, and feedback while you complete assignments. I highly recommend this course if you are ready to commit your time and efforts to a UX/UI design course. I got exactly what I thought I would get signing up for their services and I am very happy I found this great deal (considerably cheaper than most other boot camps) on social media.

    Big Bang for Your Buck

    I had been debating joining a bootcamp for 1+ years, but was always so deterred by cost. I tried doing it myself and wasn't able to stick to a structured schedule. Then I found Avocademy. The price was within my budget, but beyond that, the length is what drew me in. I wanted to transition as soon as possible as with Avocademy, they gave a 6-8 week estimate of course completion. After that, you can enter into their career jumpstart program in which they pair you with clients for real des...

    Couldn't have done it without them!

    I did the bootcamp followed by their career jumpstart program. They taught me the foundations of UX, kept in constant contact with mentors, filled my portfolio with real life clients, helped me write my resume, did mock interviews, guided me on job applications and helped me land a job making 2x what I was making in Education. They even helped me negotiate that job offer. I can't say enough good things about this program!
