    A truly immersive experience!

    This course has exceeded my expectations in every way. I have been in the graphic design field for over 13 years and realized long ago that as things become more and more digital, print design is dying fast. Applications like Canva are now replacing the need for companies to hire graphic designers.

    I started looking into UX/UI a few years ago but was intimidated. The high price of bootcamps sure didn't help. Throughout the pandemic, I was feeling ashamed of myse...

    UX Design

    The UX Bootcamp with Avocademy is perfect for those looking to either broaden their skillset or transition to a new career. While in the bootcamp, I had the opportunity to implement the wireframing skills I learned for a work project with Microsoft. Not only did I build new skills, but my confidence is also boosted and I look forward to new opportunities. Maca is a great mentor whose guidance and expertise make the course well worth the (time and financial) investment.

    Loved this course.

    I have been considering doing a UX course for a while now. Most courses were way too expensive too consider or too long. After weeks of searching I found Avocademy. And I’m so glad I did. Great price and the perfect length. 
    It’s is Avery practical course so you jump right into the portfolio project and learn as you go. I am a learn by doing type of person so this was perfect for me. Maca was so helpful in our mentor sessions, and always quick to reply when I reached out on slack.

    UXUI course

    Joining Avocademy is a great deccsion I made. Within 6-8 weeks I was ready with all the tools needed to start on a new career. Maca's one-on-one tutoring sessions were very helpful and the flexibility of the course allows you to complete it at your own time. Not to mention the price was very affordable comparing to competitors with even a better value!

    UX/UI Bootcamp

    Avocademy is a fantastic course for anyone who is interested in learning about UX/UI Design. This course doesn’t break the bank like all the other courses I found. Maca (my mentor) was great and super helpful throughout the entire process. Always available to help with any questions or critiques that I needed. She even recorded videos for me to show me some tips & tricks in Figma that wasn’t a part of the actual course! Awesome to have something to showcase in your portfolio once you...

    Phenomenal Learning Experience!

    Maca is wonderful! The context alone is so helpful for a beginner. Extremely thorough, and the source material is so varied that you're able to process and apply immediately to the activities that follow. The activities aren't just for learning but they also end up making up your entire portfolio piece. All in all, I learned so much, and having Maca available for questions and feedback really built my confidence by the time I was done. I can't wait to reference and apply the material for...

    Great Mentorship

    Avocademy is a great course for anyone looking to start out in UX Design. I like that it is structured, so I can check off my readings and activities along the way. Maca (my mentor) has also been really responsive, and always answers my messages. She is always willing to help, and has even recorded some personal tutorial videos for me to explain how to do something on Figma (the design software). I also feel like her feedback is constructive, professional, and personable, and you can tal...

    Perfect for anyone looking to transition into UX!

    While having a busy schedule as a graduate student and working part-time, enrolling in Avocademy was the best decision I have made for transitioning into a UX design career. The curriculum is self-paced so it's so easy to work around your schedule and you learn so much in the process. The unlimited one-on-one mentoring, UX resources, activities, and feedback that were offered gave me confidence in my skills and I feel like I have learned so much in such a short amount of time. Maca also ...

    A not great experience

    I "graduated" in 2022 and have yet to find a job. It seems lots of people have had great experiences, which is awesome, but this is not my experience. Some of the mentors are good, but overall, unhelpful, contradicting one another, and generally left me to feel extremely unsupported. despite taking their advice, at my peak I was applying to 100 jobs a week, with no calls, no interviews, no nothing. When asked why this is, mentors pretty much shrugged their shoulders and said i wasn't app...

    Avocademy UX/UI Foundations Program

    I recently completed the UX/UI Design course, which was a fantastic experience. From start to finish, the course provided a comprehensive and engaging journey into user experience and interface design.

    The course structure was well-thought-out and organized, making it easy to follow along and understand even the most complex concepts. Each module built upon the previous one, logically expanding my knowledge and skill set.

    One of this course's standout aspects was the qualit...

    Good Learning Experience

    I did Avocademy UX/UI Foundations last year, and I'd say it was definitely worth it. The course material was split between external readings/videos, and internal instructor videos and readings. This isn't some secret, exclusive UX/UI information that one couldn't learn on their own, BUT what the bootcamp offers is a collaborative environment to learn the material in a structured way. It also sets you up for success if you move on to do Career Jumpstart (which I'm currently in and really ...
