Testimonial of a former student:
"I'd definitely recommend the National Design Academy to other students. It allows so much flexibility to work and study at the same time. And I think that they're the only college in the UK that actually offer the distance learning degree for interior design subjects as well retail, heritage and garden design. So I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who's thinking about qualifying and wanting to study interior design; - Victoria Hedley.
