The National Design Academy offer last chance for affordable Higher Education


The National Design Academy (NDA) is reducing Diploma course fees to make them even more affordable and to encourage more students to fast track onto a Degree course before the government cuts higher education funding, causing huge fee increases from September.

Until 30 April, NDA’s Diploma in Professional Interior Design and Diploma in Professional Curtain Making& Soft Furnishings will only cost £250 (down from £395) for those students eligible for funding*. A further £50 off is available if the course is paid for in full before the start date, reducing the price to £200.
These courses are flexible and can be studied via part-time distance learning allowing students to continue with existing work and family commitments. For students who would rather study face to face with a tutor, the funded* cost for the In-Studio course has dropped to £450 (down from £595).
These new Diploma prices apply regardless of whether students intend to progress onto a Degree or not and no special entry requirements are needed, but once completed they do provide a basis for starting a new career in an exciting industry or access to a Degree programme.
NDA’s Diplomas are validated and accredited by AIM Awards as being equivalent to standard A-Level and provide a great introduction into interior design that will develop the skills and confidence required to work on projects for family and friends and the qualifications essential to progress onto a BA ( Hons ) Degree.
