    Rewarding, Thorough, Empowering

    I still remember the feeling I had when I finished my Foundations project and received my badge. I had just received my completion notice and was looking through my project in my portfolio with the words "Sole Designer" staring back at me and I teared up; I had done it! I was so proud of myself for what I had made and all the work I had put in. I was proud that in a short amount of time, I had gained a solid understanding of what UX/UI design is, and I had developed the skills to put the...

    Career Jumpstart - You won't regret it!

    After going through Avocademy's UX/UI Foundations course, it was a no-brainer to take the next step by joining Career Jumpstart!

The best part of Career Jumpstart are the mentors. There's unlimited mentorship from experienced designers so the opportunity to further your skills and knowledge in the UX...

    I learned so much!

    Going into UX/UI foundations has been one of the best decisions I’ve made for 2023. I went into it a little unsure and insecure if this would be right for me. I work in healthcare and it felt like a big transition. What I learned: I can be a designer. The learning tools, community and mentorship that Avocademy provides is consistent and encouraging. I highly recommend it to anyone considering learning UX/UI.

    Important, Helpful, and Fun!

    I completed the course back in early 2023, and I loved it. I've met so many students throughout the course that I still connect/work with to this day! The course offers many great ways to learn and navigate throughout the interaction design industry, and mentors are there to answer any questions you might have as well! I recommend this course to anyone wanting to further/start their career in the industry.

    Very Helpful

    The information created in this course was phenomenal. I had 0 experience with anything tech, but now I feel more equipped to take on roles career-wise in tech. Even though you have a guide, you can move at your own pace, and the mentors are very understanding if you get backed because they understand life happens. But they are with you every step of the way and truly show you the ropes to a career in tech.

    What a game changer

    Avocademy has been a transformative journey for me, catapulting me into the realm of UI/UX design with unparalleled success. As someone without a college degree and a history of small jobs, I was initially skeptical of my ability to break into this competitive field. However, Avocademy's exceptional boot camp proved to be the catalyst for a life-changing experience.

    The mentors at Avocademy are nothing short of fabulous. Their expertise, guidance, and unwavering support made the s...

    Exactly the Bootcamp what I looked

    Having finished the UX/UI Design Foundations program and continuing with the Career Jumpstart program, the skills that I have learned are immediately relevant and up-to-date. It gives students enough time to go through the videos and content to practice skills with an individual project. Instructors are clear, Design mentors know what to do and what to focus on during the learning experience, and the curriculum has been built up with clarity in mind. Compared to other bootcamps the price...

    Foundations :)

    I took the Foundations course at Avocademy (currently taking Career Jumpstart) and I learned so much valuable information. I actually had no previous experience using Figma so it was a little intimidating to understand at first, but practice makes perfect and I feel confident I've got it down! Overall it was a great course and would be extremely beneficial to anyone wanting to learn about or further their education in design.

    Avocademy is Awesome!

    I had a wonderful experience taking Avocademy Foundations and whole-heatedly recommend this program.  It is a challenging course and did take me a little over four months to complete (I also work full-time) but I learned a tremendous amount. Also, I contemplated learning UX/ UI design on my own.  I’m very happy though with my decision especially because of the mentorship it offered.  I think it was important for me to follow a formal course and have some skin in the game.  There is no wa...

    Streamlined and effective

    The course is what you make of it! There are always mentors available to help, and they do a good job of making sure you are on track to complete the course. If you are self motivated and are interested in seeing if UX/UI is for you then this is a good place to start
