Diploma Students: You do not require English Language qualifications to study a Diploma just a good standard of written English. Successful Diploma students will be accepted onto an NDA Bachelor’s Degree without IELTS.
Degree Students: The courses are taught in English, so international students will require a good standard of written English to study for a Degree. IELTS average 6 or TOEFL score of 550 or equivalent English language certificate will be required.
I would recommend someone studying with the National Design Academy. Especially if you are an international student, you will be part of a big family and a perfect educational system accredited by well-known institutions.
Master's Degree (MA) in Interior Design
I would recommend anybody with a willingness to study Interior Design to consider the National Design Academy. The tutor support is fantastic and it is a great way to gain qualifications without having to put the rest of your life on hold.
BA (Hons) in Interior Design
I received my Diploma and AIM Certificate in Professional Garden Design Skills. I thoroughly enjoyed the course which was very informative and the support from my tutor, Mr Anthony Rayworth, was wonderful.
