    Great learning experience

    I recently attended Avocademy's UX/UI Foundations program and had a great experience. The mentors provided a wealth of knowledge and experience that was invaluable. They gave us a deep dive into the fundamentals of UX/UI design and provided hands-on exercises to apply the concepts. The mentors were engaging and available for any questions or concerns. Overall, I gained a lot of information and skills and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to learn more about UX/UI design. I also...

    Insightful, knowledge-packed, and organized!

    I had an amazing experience with Avocademy. I really enjoyed how the course was structured, it was highly organized and it helped me to stay on track. The mentors were always responsive and helpful and I appreciate that Avocademy is always encouraging feedback and looking for ways to improve the learning/job-search experience. The Career Jump-Start program was totally worth it. Again, it was insightful, packed with information and resources and I landed a job within 2 months.

    Avocademy

    Avocademy was easy to follow. They give you all the tools, unlimited mentorship, and a community to help you through this. Although some mentors lacked experience, many were helpful and knew what they were talking about. YOU are responsible for your success in the course, they give you the tools, and it's up to you to use them and set the time to study independently. The pricing is incredible, and they are overall very flexible and want to help you. I appreciated how supported I felt thr...

    Informative, Easy to Digest, and Fun!

    I came into this course knowing nothing about UI/UX Design and came out the other side choosing it for my career! This course was easy to digest and the mentors were encouraging and helpful. I would recommend this course to anyone wanting an affordable way to enter the UX world!

    Avocademy UX Bootcamp

    A year ago I was searching for a new career path that allowed me to use my critical thinking, creativity and people skills all together. I was burnt out at work and feeling really lost/unfulfilled in the career path I was in. One day, I was on TikTok and a video popped up about Avocademy. I had heard of UX Design before through the free Google courses they offer but Avocademy seemed different. Their TikTok videos came across as relatable and they made it seem like I could really dive in ...

It was great to have mentors available to help throughout the process to answer any questions you have whether it be design related or to learn more about what the "day in t...

    Lifechanging. I learned so much!

    I was suspicious about Avocademy at first but I took the plunge and although it is a lot of work and takes dedication and openness to feedback, you do learn a lot and you design your first project to go on your professional portfolio.

    buyer beware

    I had a stressful experience because of poor directions primarily. some mentors give contradicting feedback or feedback is given in the wrong order. you are committed to resubmitting your assignments until you receive an approval instead of a grade which becomes very toxic. in some cases, I had more design knowledge and experience than some of the mentors. the course does not acknowledge grey areas in design rules and the modules need major updating. I am glad for the experience but unfo...

    Hi Gloria! After reviewing your student profile, we discovered that a few of our mentors were met with aggressive and hostile behavior while working with you to improve your assignments. In order for us to provide a world-class experience, students must be open and receptive to receiving constructive feedback. While being assertive is definitely a great quality, the methods in which you assert yourself made it difficult for our mentors to teach you, which is ultimately why you were rejected from our Career Jumpstart program. While we understand that this was not the desired result, we hope that you can understand wanting to provide a safe space for our mentors to teach our students.

    Because Foundations is a UX course for beginners, we want to make sure that the information is easily digestible. Though grey areas definitely exist within UX, our goal with Foundations is to teach the rules as they exist to help people understand them better. Our Career Jumpstart course dives deeper into the grey areas to help students take the rules that they learned in Foundations and “bend” them to create incredible experiences.
