    UX/UI Foundations

    This bootcamp honestly exceeded my expectations and it's really given me skills that would have taken me so long to learn on my own. Avocademy is not only much cheaper compared to other bootcamps out there, but the community is also a lot more tight-knit, with helpful mentors and a well thought-out course. I can tell that the people in charge really care about the quality of work from students, which encourages me to do my best as well. I would highly recommend for anyone who is serious ...

    UX/UI Foundations

    I had such a great experience with Avocademy! The course follows a self-paced model, but offers meetings with the course mentors, which makes the experience adaptable to your learning style. The material is rigorous and focuses on the why behind the design process. By the end of the course, I had a solid understanding of UX, UX research, and UI as well as a project added to my portfolio.

    Amazing Support for the Price

    I am so glad that I choose Avocademy as my UX bootcamp. The initial foundations curriculum is very extensive while still being able to complete in a few months. Definitely take advantage of the many mentors available who currently work as UX designers! I learned so much just from asking a ton of questions. The Career Jumpstart (the second bootcamp after foundations) has been an invaluable program experience working directly with clients while having unlimited support from mentors. I feel...

    UX / UI Foundations Course

    I joined the UX / UI Foundations Course in March of 2022. I found the academy through TikTok and I was hesitant at first but for the price and the deliverables I felt Avocademy was best fitted for me. The course is structured by modules - and if you've ever had any online school it is very similar to how those modules are set up. All the lessons are broken down into clear lessons and instructions for activities. However, if you have a hard time theres a plethora of people you can reach o...

    UX/UI Foundations

    Foundations course that showed me basics of Research, Designing,  Prototyping, and User Testing using different tools such as Miro, Figma, and Invision. The course takes 8 months to complete and it's completely self paced. The mentors go above and beyond to help you understand the skills needed to be a UX/UI designer.

    UX/UI Foundations

    I was at a point in my life where I knew I needed to make a career change, but didn't have any idea where to begin. I saw a TikTok about Avocademy and the rest was history. The course is very reasonably priced and what you get for your money is incredible. I feel confident in beginning my career in UX/UI Design & my skillset because of Avocademy.

    ux/ui foundations

    This is an excellent course for getting up to speed on the basics of UX/UI. Especially if you're comfortable working on your own. If you're not, there are plenty of opportunities to interact with instructors. I found all of the instructors to be thoroughly knowledgeable and helpful. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to break into this field.

    Amazing Value and Experience

    I think Avocademy is a GREAT value for the money. They provide lots of help, are remote, and their Career Jumpstart program helps you through the job application process seamlessly, and with lots of support. AND you get to work with real clients on real projects, which really gives you credibility when you apply to jobs. If you follow their steps, there is a 100% job placement rate. I'm not sure how it gets much better than that.

    Avocademy Foundations and Career Jumpstart program

    From no knowledge at all to now being a full-time employed UX Designer in a total of 9 months.
    From my experience, this particular BootCamp sets you up for success.

    The course is designed to teach you how to find information for yourself.  There was always a mentor available if I needed someone to "hold my hand" so to speak if I really didn't understand a topic.   But the course walked you thr...

    From Career Jumpstart to landing a job

    I joined Career Jumpstart in February 2022, began applying to jobs on June 9th, and signed a job offer on June 30th. 

    I can't express enough gratitude for this program. The real-life experience that this program affords you is vital for actually landing a job. There are tons of interesting projects to work on and many skilled mentors that will ensure you deliver quality products. Case-in-point: the company that ultimately hired me was won over by the high-quality portfolio that Av...
