Hi I'm doing an assignment on nudibranchs and I have found all the information I need except a diagram of the internal structure. If you could send me a diagram or information on this it would be very much appreciated. Thanks,

The Forum is not really set up to do student assignments urgently. I suspect you haven't really got all the information you need if you think that one diagram will cover the internal structure of all nudibranchs. I am afraid that you would need 20 or 30 diagrams to cover the variation within the nudibranchs.
I am gradually adding information on aspects of their anatomy which you will find if you go to the list of General Topics. There is one page with a diagram showing the gut of a dorid nudibranch which could be useful, but that is only one of the body plans found in the Nudibranchia.
If you have access to a university library have a look at Mollusca - The Southern Synthesis which has a comprehensive section on opisthobranch anatomy.
Good Luck with your assignment,
