CAD offers two 2-year POSTGRADUATE programmes in the INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN and the DIGITAL DESIGN & ART DIRECTION sections in partnership with the Nantes School of Design.
These postgraduate programmes award the Nantes School of Design’s Master’s degree (approved by the French state) and the CAD diploma. This study cycle allows students to prepare for their professional integration through internships, management courses in addition to design courses and a study period abroad.
During this 2nd cycle, the student must carry out three 3-month internships, at least one of which must be abroad (outside Belgium and outside his or her country of origin).
They have the possibility of studying for a semester (4 to 4 1/2 months) in one of the 4 studios organised by the Nantes School of Design and hosted in prestigious universities in Sao Paulo (Brazil), Shanghai (China), Pune (India) or directly in Nantes (France).
In fact, we find that our students do their internships abroad and then move to Hong Kong, Tokyo, Berlin, Rio de Janeiro, Stockholm, Shanghai, Barcelona, New York, Montreal, London, Milan, Sydney… in order to start their professional career.
During these two years, the student will work on more transversal and transcultural themes, in line with the IMW (International Multidisciplinary Workshops) already organised in the 2nd and 3rd years at the CAD.
Finally, the student presents his or her entire course to a final jury of professionals who are authorised to award the CAD and École de Design de Nantes diplomas. The latter diploma has the Grade de Master approved by the State.
