IDI and the University of Hertfordshire – We bring the University to you.

In 2008 we became a proud partner of the University of Hertfordshire, adapting some of their most popular art and design courses for online delivery to students worldwide.  


With their pioneering approach to e-learning and our excellent track record of delivering student-focused higher education courses 100% online, the collaboration has proven to be a huge success. Together we are paving the way for the future of online Art and Design education.
