    Effective and informative UX design bootcamp

    I completed Foundations of Avocademy in July and jumped right into their CJ program. I enjoyed the curriculum and they did a great job of assigning you real life clients to add substance to your portfolio. The only struggle I really experienced was with team members sometimes not holding their own in the projects. They do a phenomenal job prepping you for job applications, interviews, and negotiation. I landed a job after 28 days of applying. Overall, I would 100% recommend this bootcamp...

    Life-changing experience

    Throughout Avocademy's Career Jumpstart program, I was offered a plethora of opportunities that aided me in landing my first job as a UX designer. I was able to work on real client projects in teams, which taught me a lot about how to collaborate and derive accessible design solutions for actual users. I was also offered unlimited mentorship, ranging from design challenge reviews to mock interview prep. The staff at Avocademy truly want you to succeed, be it in the Foundations course or ...

    Life changing!

    Avocademy foundations and Career Jumpstart has been life altering! I was extremely unhappy in my field and came across Avocademy. The bootcamp is extremely comprehensive with so much mentorship help from designers themselves. Once I graduated from the boot camp, I was able to join their agency to get real client experience and continually learn about UX Design. I received even more mentorship with how to work with clients and do design handoffs, resume writing help as well as job searchi...

    Avocademy Review

    I started taking Avocademy's UX/UI Foundations course at the end of 2021 as I was interested in changing careers into UX/UI without paying ridiculously high prices for a course. After I looked at other reviews and reached out to the founder, I thought it would be a good fit and it was! You're able to work at your own pace and you have unlimited access to mentors. By the end of your foundations course, you'll have a portfolio with your own case study. They also have another course that yo...

    UX/UI Student

    Avocademy has been a dream sent. It offered me the opportunity to learn more about UX/UI foundations before spending additional money on Career Jumpstart Program. By the of the Foundations part, I was so eagerly ready to start Career Jumpstart because my confidence grew and I believed that I could do it. I've researched lots of UX/UI Bootcamps and am glad that I chose this one. It pushes me to do more and exercise what I learned. Even though it is a self-paced course, it helped me identi...

    UX/UI Foundations

    My experience with Avocademy has been all positive! In the beginning, I was a little iffy because they are one of the newer UX design bootcamps but I'm so happy I chose do to their bootcamp. The course is broken up into parts that make it so easy to learn and you get to go on your own pace. The unlimited mentor calls is what really helped me. No matter what my schedule was I could always find a mentor to help me with coursework. I also love that the course works on creating your first ca...

    Career Jumpstart Review

    I had an overall really great experience with Career Jumpstart. The main motivator behind why I went with Avocademy over other programs was the price. Typically when something is significantly cheaper, it shows. But not with this program. I was able to learn so much as a designer and land my dream role. It definitely wasn't easy, especially working full time. But I am happy to finally be here after so much hard work. I never felt lost as I always had knowledgeable mentors helping and gui...

    The affordable bootcamp with great mentorship

    I started foundations in January and just finished my 2nd client project in career jumpstart. Looking back at my work, I can truly say that Avocademy has equipped me with strong design skills that will hopefully land me a job in the near future. The mentorship has been my favorite part of this bootcamp. Everyone truly has your best interest in mind and are available to talk about anything and everything regarding careers in UX design.

    UI/UX Designer

    Avocademy is a great program. I think it really gives you the right tools and foundation to start doing UI/UX work. The project centered curriculum is a great way to understand what a job or client will ask of you and there are a lot of free resources that are shared when going through the modules for further study. I think it's a great first step in changing your career.

    Student Review

    As a whole, Avocademy is a a great if not the best way to switch careers considering the price, mentorship, and content/curriculum. I found the education covered everything one would need to know to enter this field of work successfully.
    The only concern was deadlines sometimes as often they had to be pushed back due to the time it took to get a submission reviewed, but 1. I wasn't in rush, 2. it was never longer than a few business days, 3. there were no consequences for not meeting ...

    Career Jumpstart - My New Beginning!

    Wow! I expected to be write this review but just not as quick as I am! Let me back track...I originally found Avocademy via Youtube. I was learning what UX design was and if it was something I was interested in because I was making a huge career switch. I just graduated with my master's in 2020 and was now deciding to go another route come Sept. 2021...I ended up doing Avocademy's Foundations course (which can be a whole other review in itself) and to make that long story short, I was be...
