The National Design Academy has students from over 60 countries, studying for interior design related diplomas or degrees online via our Virtual Learning Studio website.

Enroling on an online distance learning course means that students are able to achieve a fully accredited British qualification from the comfort of their own home, without the need to comply with visa regulations.

All courses at the National Design Academy are delivered in English. Consequently all international students will be required to prove that they hold sufficient English language skills. Popular accepted qualifications include:

  • IELTS average 6
  • TOEFL score of 550
  • BA (Hons) Degree in English as a Foreign Language

In 2013 the National Design Academy opened a student services office in Dubai to increase interaction with our UAE students. We have a highly esteemed bi-lingual design tutor who is based full time in the Dubai office enabling the National Design Academy to create closer ties with our increasingly growing Arabic speaking student base. UAE based students are encouraged to pop in and visit the Dubai office whenever required.
