    Great Program and Mentors

    I really enjoyed building my first project with Avocademy's UX/UI Design Foundations. I like how straightforward their system is because we learn immediately by applying the lessons in our own project. Their system simplifies UX/UI which makes it easier to digest the information and be creative as well. My favorite part of this course were the mentors. Each mentor is qualified, they work in the industry already and talking to them allowed me to understand how UX/UI designers think.  It i...

    Affordable UX/UI Bootcamp

    Honestly, I was a little uncertain at first because I had no experience in the UX/UI field. I researched other bootcamps as well and they were well out of my budget. I read other reviews on Avocademy and heard nothing but good things. I decided to take the leap and boy am I stoked that I did! The course was broken down into digestible content and even though you have deadlines, you can complete the coursework on the times that work best for you. Also, the mentors were VERY helpful in ans...

    Leap of Faith from healthcare to UX/UI

    Wow where do I start, I remember coming to the end of my healthcare assignment, my contract nearing an end, and not sure what I wanted to do next. The agency I had gone through wanted to retain me and wanted me to become staff through the agency and the hospital I was doing my contract at wanted to hire me as permanent staff, because, yes I am just that good haha... But, after moving at the height of the pandemic to work in several hospitals in the city and leaving that job after almost ...

    Avocademy UX/UI Foundations Course

    I used to be a healthcare worker and was completely burnt out and tired. I was no longer passionate about the field and knew I needed to make a change. I stumbled upon UX design and then found Avocademy. I was skeptical, but compared to the prices of other bootcamps, I decided to take the risk and begin making a career change. Taking the foundations course was the best decision I have made. It allowed me to learn the building blocks of UX/UI design. I really liked the course because whil...

    The Right Career Change

    I was laid off from my job in mortgage in August of 2022. I knew I needed to change my career path. I needed something that prioritized creativity and empathy. During my first lesson with Avocademy, I was reassured that this is what UX/UI was all about. Avocademy was accommodating and opened a whole new door for me. I was reassured by the mentors and other students in the program that this was the right choice for me. I'd recommend this program and Avocademy to anyone.

    Rewarding

    The Avocademy Design Foundations was a good experience. There isn't really an instructor to teach you from step to step. Essentially, you are teaching yourself and you learn by doing. Avocademy provides you with links and online resources to help you understand designing for UI/UX. They also provide unlimited mentorship meetings, but I never really booked any unless it was required. There were minimal openings at the time I was in the foundations class. The mentors that are helping you a...

    Avocademy is amazing for new UX/UI students.

    As a student, Avocademy is full of detailed lessons and activities explaining UX/UI best practices. The activities they assigned were directly paired with the lessons, allowing me to practice what I learned. After, mentors would review my activities to provide detailed feedback that identified areas for improvement. The lessons are not limited to design, the mentors also provide insight into UX/UI design real world. Overall, Avocademy has facilitated my journey as a UX/UI designer by pro...

    Helpful, Inviting, Community

    I always receive compliments about my stand-out portfolio and I give credit to the help of Avocademy. You really do get out quality designs with the work you put in. I also appreciate the community and mentorship so it didn't feel like I was doing it all on my own. Nonetheless, I would definitely recommend Avocademy because the work really speaks for itself.

    Super Helpful and Great Experience!

    Avocademy UX/UI Foundations is a great course! I love that you can apply what you are learning as you go, and that at the end you have a solid project. You learn the design process such as doing research, ideation, design, and prototype. You have access to one-on-one mentor meetings and feel led throughout the learning process. The mentors are amazing, and you can see that they are there to encourage you as you complete the course.
