About NID DAT 2021

National Institute of Design (NID) entrance exam is a national-level entrance exam conducted for candidates seeking admission in Bachelor of Design (B.Des) and Master of Design (M.Des) programmes. Initially, the course of Graduate Diploma Programme in Design (GDPD) was also offered but it has been discontinued since 2020. To get admission in design programmes, aspirants have to take NID DAT (Prelims) and NID DAT (Mains).
