Bootcamp was an absolute blast. The classes were so interactive and engaging which I loved, and getting to learn alongside a whole bunch of like-minded people from all across the world was super cool. Even post bootcamp, I still keep in touch with my classmates, the Memorisely community is pretty rad.

Tanvi

India 🇮🇳

Experience with Memorisely has been wonderful and engaging. I was super nervous about my responsibilities, before joining UX/UI Design Bootcamp! Now, I feel more knowledgeable and confident about my responsibilities as a product designer.

Gaston

I enjoyed the jam-packed curriculum and the guidance and community factor. I have gotten to connect with so many like-minded individuals.

Jill

This was one of the most positive online learning experiences I have ever had! I so appreciated the real world application that seemed to be woven into everything I learned. Classes and projects were engaging, fun, and suitable for any schedule. I would say the experience is so worth it no matter what stage of your career you are at!

Daniele

I really loved this experience, all my classmates and teacher were amazing. I grew so much as a person and for the first time in a while I was very proud of my work thanks to the community and my class which was very supportive and amazing. Zander, Caro, Stephen, and Flavio are amazing people and teachers. They didn't hesitate to help us when needed and give us feedback on our work. It was one of the best experiences of my life!

Cyril

"Do it. Especially if you want to feel part of a community / team / class. And if you're an introvert, go for it too. You'll feel at ease in a small group, and get to see and work the different phases of a design thinking project."

Mateen

Singapore 🇸🇬

"My experience with the Bootcamp have been nothing but positive - The duration of this Bootcamp is very suitable and accommodating to my schedule as well as it is not too long or short.At the same time, I needed a refresher for UX to upgrade my skills and was intrigued by the course content so that I can be more confident as a designer."

Hadria

France 🇫🇷

It was just very nice to be in a learning space with people from all over the world. I think in general the vibe is super positive. Feels like a safe space to me. The classes are very well designed for interaction with each other so its easy to follow and stay focus. Even tired and late at night 🙈"

Matt

"Memorisely has reinforced what I've known as a UI/UX designer and has enabled me to challenge my own assumptions to become a better designer by teaching today's latest tools with a hands-on approach to problem solving, creative thinking, and design."

FAQ

Got a question about our Live 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?

We cap our classrooms at around 24 students. We believe that a limited number of seats within a classroom promotes a more individualized learning experience for our students.

Do I need Freelance experience?

We encourage a basic knowledge of Figma before joining this bootcamp in order to have the most success as a student. You will dive into the concept of Design Systems from the beginning, so some background knowledge will greatly influence your understanding of the topic.

Why do we have prep tasks?

Our prep tasks ensure that you are ready for your first day of class with the appropriate accounts, knowledge, and community. They are designed to set you up for success as a student.

How do I meet my classmates?

Since Memorisely is fully remote, leading up to your Bootcamp, you will join a private Campus Slack Workspace in which you’ll access your classroom and fellow students to begin connecting with each other. You will have access to all future, current, and graduated students if you’re keen to expand your learning network.

When your term begins, each week you’ll join Zoom sessions where you will collaborate with each other and your teacher.

Are classes recorded?

Yes. Recordings are shared within 24 hours of each session in your Classroom space.

Why Memorisely vs others?

Firstly, our Bootcamps differ from typical online courses due to our live and immersive learning experience. Typical online courses offer 60hr+ of videos behind a paywall and have approximately a 12.6% completion rate.

We proudly measure 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 live through our learn-by-doing approach!

Secondly, you’ll be joining classmates around the world, motivating, collaborating and learning from each other. You’ll graduate with each other and likely remain design buddies for life!

Will I graduate with a job-ready Portfolio?

Yes! Whether you have a portfolio already or not, you will create your portfolio or build upon an existing one with two complete case studies that you will work on throughout class. During your term break, you’ll devote your time to designing and building your portfolio content through a guided framework provided by your teacher.

How many case studies will I complete during Bootcamp?

During our Design System Bootcamp you will complete one case study that focuses on creating a Design System from scratch.

What are the graduation requirements?

In order to receive a Memorisely Graduation certificate, you will need to attend 80% of live sessions, join with your camera on, and complete your Case Study. If you are unable to join class and/or have your camera on, you will need to let your teacher know in advance and commit to watching the recording in order to stay up to date for the next live session.

Can I take multiple Bootcamps at once?

We don’t recommend taking multiple bootcamps at once if you are working a full-time job. However if you have the time and your schedule allows, two Bootcamps are feasible but will require some discipline and commitment.

If you've got another questions about our Bootcamp you can send us a message or join an intro session to meet our team and others
