Product Designer · 🇬🇧
"The amount of content and how it is presented. There is so much packed in each Bootcamp session! No PowerPoint slides, or PDFs, just content and hands-on exercises in Figma and everything else we need in Notion. Best investment you will make in a while! So much value not just on the Bootcamps, but in being part of the Memorisely community."

Got a question about our Bootcamp?

Chances are at this stage you have a couple questions. We encourage our students to ask questions directly and you can arrange a quick call with us anytime.
How many designers in a Bootcamp?
Each bootcamp has 20 Designers. For us, it's important to keep these bootcamps super personal. This personal model ensures we can support and motivate 100% of students to graduate and have an awesome experience.
Is this Bootcamp for me?
Our Design System Bootcamp is great for junior & mid-level UX/UI Designers. The majority of folks who enroll are familiar with Figma and join to learn how to create a Design System from scratch for their team. Commonly, students who enroll in our Bootcamp are hungry to improve their UI skills and learn the best practices for documenting their UI foundations, components, and patterns.

We often have a handful of junior students in each class who are eager to learn and showcase their Design System skills in their portfolio. We've had plenty of Designers land jobs, quoting their Design System skills as a turning point!

It's a great opportunity for those wanting to learn Figma and improve their skills in building out scalable styles, components, and patterns with a class around the world.
How do I meet my classmates?
All learning is done remotely. Before the bootcamp you'll be invited to a private slack space to meet your classmates from around the world. Each week you'll join a zoom class together and throughout the bootcamp we encourage you to collaborate, and constantly feedback to learn-by-doing.
Why Memorisely vs others?
Two reasons.

Firstly, our Bootcamps differ from typical online courses. Unlike online courses that are sold for having 60hr+ of video behind a paywall, Memorisely Bootcamps are immersive learning experiences. Typical online courses have a 12.6% completion rate, whereas we pride ourselves on measuring success with a 98% completion rate from students. So instead of trying to teach yourself by goggling at a video, you'll join a fun class and be taught!

Secondly, you'll be joining classmates around the world, motivating, collaborating and learning from each other. We consider these micro classes, and together you'll graduate and likely remain design buddies for life 🙌
