"UX/UI Foundations Experience"

I finished UX/UI Foundations. If you don't understand recorded lecture videos, you can read the written version of what has been explained in videos + articles (In my case, only by watching the lecture videos, I was able to understand the lessons). The... Read More

After submitting an assignment, I received mentor feedback if I needed to edit/correct my work. Later, in the course, the feedbacks were given through videos, so it was easy to understand how to edit my work better.

When I got stuck, I booked a 1:1 tutoring class. I found availability the next day, and sometimes even on the same day. The course went smoothly for me! Everything was so organized!

"Highly recommend Avocademy"

In December 2023, I took a leap of faith and enrolled in Avocademy's UX/UI Foundations course, immersing myself in the world of UX design. Avocademy was one of the greatest decisions I made for myself. I have since completed the curriculum, published... Read More

Since the start of my Foundations course, I've noticed and appreciated the fact that Avocademy has been actively updating their curriculum to stay up to date with industry standards. Along with consistent seminars with guest speakers and additional shared resources, I am confident in Avocademy fostering an understanding of how to navigate my future UX role in the workplace.

When researching different bootcamps, Avocademy's unlimited mentorship was a huge deciding factor for me. For the price and overall student experience, I would highly recommend Avocademy.

"Gives You the Necessary Skills to Land a Job"

Pros:
Cost is reasonable and they have payment plans.
Guidance is research-based.
I did land a job after going through this program.
It gives transferrable job-hunting skills (resume, interviewing, presentation, etc) that help, even if you decide to not... Read More

Cons:
It sometimes feels like the optimism of the place doesn't match the current job market. Are people landing jobs after this bootcamp? Yes. Is it the majority of people that are in the program? No. To counter this, you must be prepared to improve yourself, your work, and your portfolio way more than the mentors tell you to and to apply and interview way more than you think you'll need to.

"Great Foundation"

Pros: As someone who is naturally curious yet cautious, it took me a year after discovering Avocademy to finally enroll, and I regret not doing it sooner. Having tried other boot camps, I can confidently say this program is far superior. It offers a comprehensive... Read More

Cons: I would have appreciated the inclusion of one more project to enhance my confidence upon completion. Perhaps accelerating the same process could allow students to finish with two projects for their portfolio.
