Default Access Modifiers in C#

Non Nested type 

                    | Default   | Permitted declared accessibilities
------------------------------------------------------------------
namespace            | public    | none (always implicitly public)

enum                 | public    | none (always implicitly public)

interface            | internal  | public, internal

class                | internal  | public, internal

struct               | internal  | public, internal

delegate             | internal  | public, internal

Nested Type
                     | Default   | Permitted declared accessibilities
------------------------------------------------------------------
namespace            | public    | none (always implicitly public)

enum                 | public    | none (always implicitly public)

interface            | public    | none

class                | private   | All¹

struct               | private   | public, internal, private²

delegate             | private   | All¹

constructor          | protected | All¹

interface member     | public    | none (always implicitly public)

method               | private   | All¹

field                | private   | All¹

user-defined operator| none      | public (must be declared public)

¹ All === public, protected, internal, private, protected internal

² structs cannot inherit from structs or classes (although they can, interfaces), hence protected is not a valid modifier
