OUR SHORT COURSES
NWSD offers a variety of short courses, such as Part-time Fashion Design, Sewing, Runway Modelling, etc. In the efforts to make our short courses more affordable, the NWSD short courses
are offered as non-credit bearing courses, as these courses are not unit-standard based. Student
therefore receive a non-credit bearing certificate after completing the short course.
OUR ONLINE ACADEMY
The online courses can be completed in your own time with the help of the award winning X!act Design Patternmaker™. This patternmaking tool was initially designed to address identified needs of North West School of Design students, this tool is used for drafting basic block patterns that are accurate, accessible and cost effective, but the Patternmaker is now used by many fashion professionals and fashion schools.
