A one-year program taught in English, in an international class, to obtain the DN MADE diploma

A 3rd year of the DN MADE (Bachelor's level degree) taught in English, for French and international students who have completed 2 years of design studies.

The 3rd year of DN MADE / International Class offers the opportunity to :

  • Follow a program taught in English,
  • Cooperate with international exchange students for a semester on group projects supervised by professional designers,
  • Work in a cross-cultural context.



We offer 4 DN MADE programs for the 3rd year in international class taught in English. These programs follow on from our DN MADE Years 1 & 2, taught in French.

They are open to students who have completed 2 years of design studies in one of the following 4 design specialities:

  • Retail & Interior Design
  • Industrial Products
  • Digital Media Design
  • Circular Fashion Design

    These DN MADE programs lead to the Higher Education "Diplôme National des Métiers d'Art et du Design", which confers the grade of licence and allows students to opt for further study or to enter the world of work.

    Teaching program

    Three main teaching areas

    • Generic cultural and humanities teaching
    • Cross-disciplinary teaching
    • Practical and professional teaching

    Throughout the year, students work on various workshops, including an international workshop supervised by teachers from our partner schools. They also have to develop a personal project that will be the subject of the final diploma defense.

    An example of a project carried out during the 3rd year: "From the streets to the streets"
