The New Design University St. Pölten (NDU) is an international, real-life site of high-end education in design, engineering and business. The NDU trains creative thinkers who advance social change and explore tomorrow’s processes of work and design today.
The New Design University St. Pölten currently offers five bachelor's courses and three master's courses.
For all those who are not yet sure whether a creative bachelor's course is just the right thing for them, there is the Foundation Course - a two-semester basic course, serving as a preparation for a subsequent bachelor's course at the New Design University.
In the design-related bachelor's courses at the NDU - marked with an asterisk (*) - all exams can be taken in English, all written papers can be submitted in English as well. However, a good passive command of German is required, since you must be able to follow the discussions in class. We therefore strongly encourage candidates to enrol in an intensive German course prior to commencing their studies at the NDU.
Also, please note that proof of at least a B2 level in either German or English is required for admission (if your English is at B2 or higher, you will still need the aforementioned passive German skills when attending classes).
On demand, the master's courses Information & Spatial Design and Entrepreneurship & Innovation are offered entirely in English (minimum 10 participants required).
For further information please consult the "Fast Facts / Admission" page of the respective course, or contact our info line by phone or e-mail at +43 (0)2742 890 2418 or info(at)ndu.ac.at.
