What is a DN MADE ?
The DN MADE, National Diploma in Fine Arts, Crafts and Design is a state-controlled degree and leads to the award of an Undergraduate Diploma after three years of studies.
Depending on the speciality, holders of DN MADE can work as design assistants in a design studio, in agencies, in SME/SMIs, work as freelancers or access a job as a craftsman-designer mastering advanced techniques.
DN MADE promotes links between design/creation and production/manufacturing. Based on a common teaching base, training is built around project dynamics.

The 3rd year International Class

This 3rd year International Class welcomes French and international students who have validated two years in design, and students from our partner schools for an academic exchange semester. Students are organized into one of three DN MADE programs, depending on their previous studies. In both case, the validation of the 3rd year of DN MADE leads to the award of the same diploma.
