    This is the only bootcamp you'll ever need.  Not only is it like a third of the price of other bootcamps but the content is just as valuable and is presented in a clear and easy to learn format.  The best part about Avocademy is the option to join Career Jumpstart when you finish the Foundations course.  Don't waste your money on any other bootcamps, I promise Avocademy is the right choice!

    Graduate

    This UX/UI foundations course with Avocademy was really great, all the mentors are super supportive and really care. I was able to create a project end to end and all the material in the course was easy to understand and filled with various resources as well. I came from a background with no UX/UI experience and thanks to this course I was able to create my first project and join their career jumpstart course where I have worked on three client projects and am in the process of finding a...

    Foundations

    This was the perfect program for me to join while still working full time because there’s enough flexibility to do coursework only nights and weekends. I was ready to work hard though so I wanted something I could power through in a relatively short time so I wouldn’t burn myself out. The mentors are fantastic and very knowledgeable. It’s much better than teaching yourself a new career from scratch and cheaper than other programs too. I feel like I have the support I need to get a job in...

    A great experience

    Avocademy was something I found while I was going through the Coursera Google UX program and it was such an amazing choice to switch. The mentorship I got was amazing and feedback was consistent and thorough. They are constantly updating their materials and making the course better and have professionals coming in to provide real world insights in their speaker series. It’s a fantastic resource for the students.

    So far, REALLY good

    I am going to be finishing my run in Foundations for Avocademy here in a couple of weeks. The course is split up into 6 modules that guide you through *lots* of reading, videos and other literature, which prepare you for Activities. Activities are based on what you've learned and have incredibly clear instructions. 

    When you complete an Activity, you submit it to the community Slack channel where it is reviewed and approved by a Mentor. On the Slack channel you can also ask questi...

    Avocademy isn't just a course, it's a community!

    Avocademy is a great place to learn UX/UI design! The foundations course taught me relevant, important information about the design process and the career jumpstart program gave me experiences with real clients that I was able to put on my portfolio.  The community at Avocademy is also amazing. The mentors really care about the students and everyone is just really supportive and transparent. If you're looking for a UI/UX course, I HIGHLY suggest Avocademy!

    One of the best decisions I have ever made!

    As a fresh college graduate with a background in Computer Science and Digital Arts, I had a huge lack of self confidence when it came to landing my first UX/UI related job. Career Jumpstart provided ways to help build my portfolio by giving me project opportunities where I was able to work with real life outside clients and a design team. On top of that, through great mentorship, I was able to gain valuable feedback and improve the way I was approaching interviews because honestly, I was...

    Career Jumpstart!!

    I'm so glad and grateful I was able to job search with the Career Jumpstart program! Job searching is such a stressful and confusing process, and I truly don't think I could've done it myself. Let alone find a job in a month! The online modules had such helpful and essential info that prepped me on every step of the process, and mentors were always available to provide additional personal help via Slack, messages, or calls. I mainly worked with Maca (aka bugged her whenever ANYTHING happ...

    Best Choice Ever

    I cannot recommend this bootcamp enough. Not only is it affordable, but also hands-on. All of the mentors go out of their way to help the students. There is a sense of personal connection that you won't get from other bootcamps. Even the founder is extremely involved and committed to helping the students. You will not find that with other bootcamps. It seriously has changed my life. If you are thinking about taking this boot camp, do it. You will thank yourself six months from now!

    UX Designer

    This program is amazing! After graduating from my Foundations course with Avocademy, the Career Jumpstart allowed me the opportunity to work on real projects with real clients and collaborate with other designers. It wasn't only the fact that it was so hands-on, but the guidance that I had from Maca was exceptional. She was there every step of the way, and we never lost that personal touch that makes a world of difference especially in an online setting. I'm thankful to have learned all ...

    UI/UX Foundations

    Overall, this bootcamp was great especially the fact you pay a lot less than compared to other bootcamps. It is a lot of work but it's a great way to learn the essentials of UX if you're a beginner. There were some hiccups during the program such as timezone issues and mentors not being able to jump on calls as frequently as I had hoped but Maca and her team were very receptive to hearing feedback and making adjustments to their course and mentorships to be able to accommodate everyone a...
