Last chance! – All students enrolling prior to July 2012 will still receive funding

After all the uncertainty around university fees and funding of recent weeks, we now know that all students enrolling prior to July 2012 will still receive funding, keeping their fees below the increased figures announced from 2012.

When you start a Foundation Degree at The National Design Academy (specialists in Interior Design distance learning courses) before July 2012,  you may still progress to a BA (Hons) on completion of the Foundation Degree with lower fees*. So there has never been a better time to embark on a degree in interior design.

You can enrol with the National Design Academy now to keep your fees as low as possible by visiting their website www.nda.ac.uk. You can also find lots more information about  NDA workshops and open days.

Younger people are now looking for alternative routes to higher education and who can blame them , high debt and low graduate job opportunities are far from appetising. Continue reading
