    UX/UI foundations

    Who I think this course is excellent for: 
    People who have been learning about UX design on their own and are ready to follow the steps to complete a Portfolio from start to finish.  The course calculates you will take 6-8 weeks to learn the basics of UX/UI and complete an entire project. My overall experience even as a new designer without any graphic design, marketing, project managing or tech experience was great!  Although I have to say, that if I had learned more on my own prior ...

    UX Designer

    I had previously taken an UX/UI course with another institution and wished I had came across Avocademy sooner. The 6-8 week course is self paced and the learning material is very informative and resourceful. Mentors are available throughout the course to assist with the project and provide guidance. We also get to communicate with other students and help each other out. There are also speaker series with people who have years of experience in the UX field give us advice and share their e...

    Structured Learning, True Mentorship, and Community

    After spending the last 8 years in the insurance industry I needed a career pivot. Following a lot of research, I found that UX design was where I wanted to be. I went the self-taught route but quickly found that I needed to approach learning in a more structured environment. Insert Avocademy. 

    There are a lot of great things I can say about the bootcamp but here are my 5 biggest takeaways:

    1. Mentor feedback and availability: Each activity needs to be approved by a mentor ...

    When I first learned about UX/UI, I immediately knew I wanted to enroll in a BootCamp but the real question was...which one? There were so many boot camps out all with various price ranges, mentorship, and different features. After some thorough research and listing out the pros and cons for each BootCamp I finally decided on Avocademy.

    Why?
    I chose Avocademy because of the price. It was extremely affordable and offered unlimited mentorship. I also liked the duration of the Boo...

    If you are looking for a sign to join Avocademy, this is it. Do it!

    I was extremely skeptical about signing up for an online bootcamp. Would it be worth the money? Would the outcome be something I’d be happy about? Would I actually get a job in this field?!  All my concerns were valid but instead of trying to figure all these answers out by myself, I did my own research and then I set up a one-on-one to chat with Maca. Our conversation left me feeling like I would be supported in my learning and there was a plan in place to ensure m...

    Self Paced, Affordable Program with Mentor Help

    I started my course at Avocademy on December 9th, 2021. Since I had the time to dedicate myself to the program full time, I wanted a BootCamp that could be up to my pace. I enjoyed the materials and the assignments are very helpful to understand the concepts of UX design. 

    Throughout the program, UX design mentors have to approve your work. This is a great educational tool as they will comment and give feedback to improve the work you are submitting. Mentors take their time to rev...

    This Bootcamp Changed My Life

    This Bootcamp is affordable, fast-paced, and intuitive. Within 6 months I went from having zero job prospects to working three different jobs. While the course does a great job of teaching the fundamentals of UX/UI, what really helped me was the mentorship! My mentors helped boost my confidence in so many different ways and really helped me thrive during this time of personal growth.

    Rewarding Experience

    Regarding a career pivot, Avocademy was one of the best decisions I have ever made. 

    When I first became interested in learning UX / UI design, I was quite unsure where to start. The field had different routes without without have a direct path to entry unlike other careers. I have spoken with a variety of bootcamps focusing on the field, but was intimidated by their high costs and other factors.

    When I learned about Avocademy, I was hesitant and decided to conduct more res...

    A Fantastic Learning Community- Highly Recommend!

    Avocademy changed my life. This affordable, approachable curriculum introduced me to key UX/UI concepts and gave me the confidence I needed to pursue this career in earnest. 

    Avocademy mentors are helpful and friendly, and the coursework is thorough without being overwhelming. I was able to complete the activities and projects at my own pace, and the mentors gave me great feedback to ensure my work was top-quality and portfolio-worthy.
