Design School

The National Design Academy offers flexible Interior Design courses from Diploma to Degree.

Set on the banks of the River Trent in Nottingham, boasting the award winning Interior Design practice NDA Private Clients on campus, the NDA offers a cohesive education, training and commerical arm, bringing current industry ideas and relevance to the portfolio of courses as well as providing a unique and holistic experience for students.

The Interior Design courses are fully validated and accredited, with the Degree level courses validated by Staffordshire University. Students study from home via online distance learning, allowing them to continue with work and family commitments whilst working towards the BA (Hons) Interior Design.

Students with no prior knowledge of Interior Design can start with the Level 3 Diploma in Professional Interior Design, the 'access to Higher Education' course, which provides progression to the Foundation Degree in Interior Design and ultimately the BA (Hons) Interior Design. Diploma level courses can be 'fast tracked' by attending Studio Courses at the Academy, but all courses are perfectly suited to part-time distance learning, designed to fit in around existing commitments.
