    Career Jumpstart

    This course has helped me gain so much experience in such a concentrated amount of time. I have amazing products to put in my portfolio and I landed a job in two weeks of starting my search! The mentors were so helpful and available throughout all of my projects and the ups and downs. I never felt lost or confused. They helped me through the job search process and gave me all the necessary information to be successful in interviews, design challenges, negotiation and accepting a job! It'...

    This Bootcamp Changed My Life

    This Bootcamp is affordable, fast-paced, and intuitive. Within 6 months I went from having zero job prospects to working three different jobs. While the course does a great job of teaching the fundamentals of UX/UI, what really helped me was the mentorship! My mentors helped boost my confidence in so many different ways and really helped me thrive during this time of personal growth.

    Rewarding Experience

    Regarding a career pivot, Avocademy was one of the best decisions I have ever made. 

    When I first became interested in learning UX / UI design, I was quite unsure where to start. The field had different routes without without have a direct path to entry unlike other careers. I have spoken with a variety of bootcamps focusing on the field, but was intimidated by their high costs and other factors.

    When I learned about Avocademy, I was hesitant and decided to conduct more res...

    A Fantastic Learning Community- Highly Recommend!

    Avocademy changed my life. This affordable, approachable curriculum introduced me to key UX/UI concepts and gave me the confidence I needed to pursue this career in earnest. 

    Avocademy mentors are helpful and friendly, and the coursework is thorough without being overwhelming. I was able to complete the activities and projects at my own pace, and the mentors gave me great feedback to ensure my work was top-quality and portfolio-worthy. 

    Avocademy is self-paced with almost u...

    Foundations Course

    This course is jam packed with information. I am greatful to gave learned as much as I did iver the course of time. It is supposed to be a 6week course however if you have other responsibilities it will take forever to complete. 

    Maca and her team are excellent and really help you achieve your goals for the capstone project. 

    Just note to get hired, one project isn’t enough. You need at least 3 so keep that in mind. There is another program for a price to help you get that ...

    Thankful!

    I've tried a different, short foundational UX/UI bootcamp before coming into Avocademy. The main reason I chose Avocademy ultimately for the "real thing" after researching many other bootcamps in a year was the unlimited 1:1 mentorship, and the affordable cost. A lot of bootcamps don't offer the call with mentor, some only offer a limited number. I also like how approachable all the mentors are. Maca (the owner) has been super helpful with any and all questions and issues I had. They're ...

    UX/UI Designer

    I came across Avocademy through social media in September. However I had already been trying to learn UX/UI on my own, but I knew I was not going to keep up with it unless I had someone to guide me and provide feedback. Avocademy was a great opportunity. The course went through the foundations of UX and UI which led me to my capstone project. I am very proud of what I created. Along the way I received wonderful feedback from the mentors. All the resources were on the course and I knew I ...

    Super grateful

    I had just started pondering the thought about joining a UX Bootcamp when Avocademy popped up on my for you page on TikTok. I was hesitant at first but after seeing student portfolios, reading reviews I was sold. I started Avocademy at the very end of August and I was done by October so it's safe to say the course really is about 8 weeks long. Through my journey in Avocademy I have learned way more than I would have imagined. It's crazy to think I learned Figma, and completed an end to e...

    UX Designer


    Get ready for a long and emotional review: TLDR, I could not have done it without Avocademy ( and Maca - She is nothing less than incredible). 
     A quick background on myself, because I know all new students want to know where and why you switched to UX:
    I am a trained architect, I went to school in Mississippi, I always knew I didn’t want to follow the traditional track of architecture, but I did it anyway and struggled with it as expecte...

    Simply the Best!!!

    I took Avocademy's UX/UI Design Foundations Course earlier this year and wrote a review on that. I signed up for the Avocademy Career Jumpstart right after. I have to repeat this again - Avocademy is the BEST EVER UX/UI institute.

    I accepted an offer as a UX Researcher at Morgan Stanley at the end of September (Only one month after I started applying) and I am starting my new career journey at the end of this month. I am beyond thrilled because b...

    UX/UI Design

    The Avocademy UX/UI Foundations course was so great. I'd been wanting to learn UX for a while and this was a perfect option for me.  The course work can all be done on your own time, but mentors are available via chat or scheduled video call and will review your work before you move on to the next module.  Every mentor was friendly, encouraging and helpful.  I came out of the class with a great portfolio project and landed a job a couple months later.  The course is advertised as 6-8 wee...

    Amazing!!! I got a job!

    I loved my experience in Avocademy and subsequent experience in Career Jumpstart. Before transitioning into UX through Avocademy, I was an educator with no experience whatsoever in tech. Thanks to Avocademy + CJ, I was able to build a portfolio of real client projects and land a job within a month of job searching (after completing the course and my portfolio). Additionally, everyone who works at Avocademy is so kind :,) They really care about your career growth and want you to succeed!!...
