NDU Master`s Scholarships in Interior Design at NDU Service Center

Overview
In cooperation with Vienna-based newspaper "Die Presse", the Economic Chamber of Lower Austria grants one full-ride-scholarship and one half-ride-scholarship for NDU`s master`s degree course in Interior Design & 3-D-Design with a total value of 21,000 EUR.

Already in June the New Design University had drawn attention to its master`s degree course in Interior Design & 3-D-Design with an innovative campaign. In the campaign, the question "Interior design?" was answered with seemingly far-off pictures for instance showing the Oval Office or an antiquated class room.

The NDU is developing a new society-focussed understanding of interior design, which conveys the construction of rooms to students in a complex future-oriented way, fusing practical use and groundbreaking theoretical approaches.
