    Avocademy Foundations Course

    This is a terrific program. For the cost, the value might be the best out there. I was able to schedule unlimited mentor calls and could reach out for feedback at any point during the bootcamp. There is also a great community, which is super helpful for networking and not feeling alone in the process.

    In terms of the curriculum, I feel like I had a solid understanding of the general UX process after the program concluded. I feel much more confident understanding the research proce...

    Great experience with Avocademy Foundations!

    I recently completed the UX/UI Avocademy foundations course and would recommend it to anyone wanting to build their design tools or transition into the UX/UI field. We worked our way through a project that hit on the ins and outs of research and design with continuous help from mentors along the way. I am now enrolled in the Career Jumpstart program, and am hoping to transition from graphic design/fine arts to UX/UI by the summer with the Avocademy team's help. Would recommend and I thin...

    Encouraging and Exciting!

    The foundations course was overall a great experience. The mentors are really nice and encouraging and are in your corner. I loved how they give you more than just the answers to your questions, they provide extra tidbits of advice when it comes to the tech industry and best practices in designing. If I were to change one thing I would want more mentors to be available, its very common to schedule a mentor session 5-7 days out before, and its shows why they are booked so often! Be prepar...

    New skills to enhance your career

    I learned so much about UX/UI during this boot camp. I was taking a leap of faith in that I'd even fit in with the design community, however, the instructors and lessons learned will stay with me for a lifetime. I'm excited for what the next chapter of my career is with my new skills.

    The best hands on experience I could ask for!

    I was lucky enough to join Avocademy's boot camp and learn about the UI/UX world. The mentoring helped me grow and gain the confidence to switch careers! I later joined their Career Jumpstart program, where I could work on real client projects. Doing this gave me the experience I needed to step into UX. I am happy that I found Avocademy because I can work in a field I love.

    More than a bootcamp!

    Avocademy feels more like a community of supportive design mentors and colleagues than a bootcamp. Yes you have to work hard and fast and yes you have to have dedication to do well. But, I felt supported and encouraged the whole entire way. I had access to mentors to ask about the work of designers, design tips, and review of my designs throughout the course. The foundations program is a great way to see if you are a good fit for UX without having to commit to a lengthy and expensive boo...

    Worth it

    I completed the Foundations Course and Career Jumpstart with Avocademy. The best part of the program is how accessible everyone is. There is unlimited mentorship and guidance throughout the entire process. The foundations course sets you up for a great basis for career jumpstart. I would highly recommend doing both and following their curriculum. I started the program in April 2022 and got a job December 2022. I was skeptical at first, but the process genuinely works and I couldn't be ha...

    Supportive learning environment

    Avocademy is a great way to quickly learn and gain design skills. There is a TON to learn about design and this course is structured in a way that the information is not overwhelming. You basically go through the design process as you are learning and create a project with it. There are plenty of resources provided for students to aid with their learning. Something unique about the program is the unlimited mentorship. However, I do suggest hiring mentors with teaching/mentorship experien...

    Foundations Course

    The Avocademy Foundations course was an amazing place for me to start. Coming from a healthcare background, I wasn't sure if I'd be able to learn how to work in a whole new industry but Avocademy has made it a piece of cake! The information provided was very digestible and super actionable. You have access to mentors every day of the week, which is such an incredible resource. The assignment revisions/approvals may take a bit of time depending on what it is. However, this can be a non-fa...
