BA (Hons) Degree Courses

BA (Hons) Degree Courses

At the National Design Academy we offer a two step flexible route to achieving a BA (Hons) by incorporating a Foundation Degree (FdA) followed by a BA (Hons) final year ‘top-up.’ This unique flexible approach to achieving a BA (Hons) has the benefit of a work experience element within the FdA, it also allows students to pause or stop their studies and graduate with an FdA, and provides subject options to those students who continue onto the BA (Hons) final year ‘top-up’ to achieve their BA (Hons) degree. 


Having a fully-accredited BA (Hons) degree will greatly assist students with their future career in Interior Design. They can start their own business or join a design or architectural practice as a qualified Interior Designer.

NDA successful Diploma students are offered a guaranteed route onto the BA (Hons) incorporating a Foundation Degree. Direct entry onto this course from students who have studied elsewhere is also welcome. Please see entry requirements for this course.

All of the degrees at the National Design Academy are fully-accredited by our Academic Partners, Staffordshire University and, on successful completion of their BA (Hons) students are invited to attend an inspiring graduation ceremony by the lakes at Trentham Gardens, Staffordshire. This is always a wonderful day where students can celebrate everything they have accomplished with friends, family, NDA tutors and fellow design students.
