About Mento Design Academy

Location: Online

Mento Design Academy is a UX & UI Bootcamp designed to teach you everything you need in order to land your first UX job and be successful on it.

Our bootcamp is fully remote, so students come from all over the world and the experience is equally relevant... Read More

Since it’s self-paced, you can choose to organize your learning schedule in a way that works for you - most of our students keep their full-time job during the bootcamp. There are no classrooms or fixed hours, and the study groups we organize are mindful of timezones (and optional).

The curriculum is built by a top team of designers with experience at companies such as Adobe, Google, Facebook.

All the theory is immediately translated into practical assignments, to help you get hands-on quickly and practice design at every step of your learning journey.

You get your own, dedicated mentor whom you’re matched with based on your career goals and learning needs. You’ll meet them every week in a 1:1 session where you can discuss your progress, have your questions answered, get feedback on your assignments or anything else you need.

We value real experience, so we enable you to work on real projects in the bootcamp, either by helping you identify opportunities in your network or by leveraging our own network to help you discover design problems to solve. You can build up to 3 projects for your portfolio during our bootcamp, under the close guidance of your mentor.

Community is a key aspect of every successful learning journey, and Mento brings together students, mentors, past graduates and design industry leaders into a supportive family that you can always rely on to help and encourage you.

Career support services are offered at the end of your learning journey to prepare you for the job hunt. You’ll optimize your portfolio with your mentor, run mock interviews with Senior UX Designers that have hiring experience, get in touch with our Design Recruitment partners at Fearless Group and get access to our network to land your first job interviews

Our support continues beyond graduation, since you get lifetime access to the Mento community where you can get help and guidance from your mentor, other mentors, industry leaders and more.

The Mento UX & UI Bootcamp takes between 5 and 9 months, depending on your pace and availability.

Mento was built by Senior Designers with the dream of crafting the ideal journey of switching to UX. Our mission is to give our students a realistic experience that is relevant for a real-life job. Our success stories show that we made it.

Come join us in the Mento Design family!
