Do you have questions about a particular course? Would you like to get to know our staff - or find out what our students have to say about studying at the NDU? No problem! Our team will gladly answer your questions - either per mail, by phone or Skype, or in an individual appointment here at our university.


Who's teaching at the NDU? Who are the "creative heads" in charge of guiding and running the University? What are the research subjects and areas of expertise of our professors and assistants? Here you'll find not only contact details but also short bios and portraits of the NDU Team.


We're always looking forward to visitors in person – but if you aren't around, now there's a great way of getting to know our University at at distance and experiencing the creative atmosphere 'by proxy'. You can start the 3D "Virtual Walk" in any recent Web browser.
