    Great Curriculum Plus unlimited Mentorship!

    If you guys are thinking about taking up a UX/UI Bootcamp, then I highly recommend Avocademy! I literally came from a different background and had no design experience whatsoever, but Avocademy helped me pick up all the needed skills to get started. They make everything so easy to understand! Not only that, they go above and beyond to help the students out. The only regret I have is not taking this bootcamp sooner lol

    My transformative experience at Avocademy

    I recently completed Avocademy's UX/UI Foundations course and I can confidently say that it was an invaluable experience for me.

The course is well-structured and builds upon each module in a clear and logical manner. The course material is thoughtfully crafted and presented in an easy-to-understand format. Although I had limited knowledge of UX/UI at the outset, the course...

    Structured guidance & great community

    I completed both the UX/UI Foundations and the Career Jumpstart programs, as I wanted to transition into UX design from my previous career. Both were excellent programs at an affordable price relative to competitor bootcamps (which is why I went with Avocademy in the first place), with a great community of fellow students. Foundations gave me a solid introduction into UX design at a self-paced timeline with structure, and Career Jumpstart allowed me to work on real client projects and la...

    Inspiring, Grueling, Rewarding

    This program is work ! However it is so worth it if you’re receptive to feedback and do what’s required. I loved having the opportunity to work on real projects with a manager and team of designers. Honestly that’s the easiest part. The job search was long and hard. It can become tedious and frustrating especially in this market. While it’s great to have a network of people going through the same thing as you and get inspiration from them, on the inverse you’ll want to use discernment an...

    Avocademy is the start you need

    Starting Avocademy was an incredible decision when it came  to transitioning into the UX/UI field. You have the ongoing support to help get you through the program. Foundations is thorough and explains the fundamentals of UX/UI design. You get to work on your own project which you can add to your portfolio. I loved it so much, I am currently enrolled in their Career Jumpstart program. Maca, the creator of Avocademy, is very knowledgeable in what she does, and is great support, as well as...

    Hands-on learning with mentor support

    I completed the UX/UI Foundations and Career Jumpstart programs with Avocademy. After deciding to pursue UX Design as a new career, I did a lot of research on the many bootcamps available online. I needed a program that I could complete while working full-time, and I wasn't willing to pay the high prices of some other bootcamps. After speaking with the founder of Avocademy one on one, I felt this one was different from the other bootcamps. Maca explained the program and answered all of m...

    Avocademy changed my life!

    Avocademy is flexible and affordable! When I was deciding on what boot camp to enroll in - my main concerns were cost and time management. Though the cost is much less than other boot camps out there, they still give payment options which make it even more flexible. Since the course is 100% online and self-paced it is very easy to manage. Don't get it twisted - it can be challenging and you still have to put a lot of effort into it but the mentors are always there to guide you. The cours...

    Avocademy Bootcamp Review

    I took Avocademy's UX/UI Foundations bootcamp and Career Jumpstart course. Overall, I am very happy I chose to go through Avocademy for my career change into UX Design. Both courses were affordable with a variety of payment options. Foundations was a very insightful learning experience that went in depth on UX/UI design. Coming out of it, I felt I learned a lot of material in a short amount of time. After foundations, I went into career jumpstart which helps translate everything I learne...

    Best decision for my career!

    I completed the Avocademy UX/UI Foundations course and then went on to do their Career Jumpstart course. I cannot express how valuable these courses were for my career progression. I came in knowing almost nothing about UX/UI Design, and through these courses was able to advance my knowledge and gain real world experience working on projects as a sole designer, a designer on a team of 6, and a lead designer with direct interactions with my client. These courses fully prepared me for work...

    Detailed and engaging UX Foundations Bootcamp

    I recently completed the Avocademy UX/UI Foundations bootcamp course and loved it! The course was thoughtfully designed with a mix of videos articles/ reading. Each section built on the one previous to it and while we covered a ton of information, it never felt overwhelming or out of reach. The course is designed so that you finish with one complete portfolio project and there are mentors who are available to provide help and guidance along the way whenever needed. I really enjoyed by ex...

    Affordable, convenient, and completely worth it

    Truly recommend this program for anyone transitioning into UX/UI!! 
    A BIG pro about this program is how affordable it is! Other bootcamps I was looking at were mostly around 16k ....the Foundations course is ~2k! And you are able to do a payment plan.
    Another huge pro is that you have ~unlimited~ mentorship throughout the program. The mentors are a HUGE help and you can talk to them anytime on slack, can schedule calls with them about any...
