Studying with NDA

No Previous Qualifications?

No Problem! Start with one of our three Diploma courses: Professional Interior Design, Professional Garden Design or Professional Soft Furnishings & Curtain Making. Start your own small business, tackle your own projects more professionally or move to the next level with a guaranteed place on one of our online degrees.

UK students pay approximately 50% of the full course fee – the balance is funded by the UK Government’s Adult education budget (AEB).

NDA is the only design school to be able to offer this funding as our Diplomas are all fully accredited.

All UK students studying part-time diploma, undergraduate or postgraduate degree courses with NDA are eligible for a student loan to cover the entire cost of their tuition fees.

Guaranteed Progression

If you would like to go on to study for a degree online you can progress onto a BA (Hons) and then even a Master’s Degree (M.A.) and receive a fee rebate with an NDA Progression Scholarship.

Direct Entry onto an NDA BA (Hons) Top-up or Master’s Degree

Direct entry or transfer onto any of our online degree courses is welcome at any level from students who have studied at another institution.
