Master's Degree (MA)

Master's Degree (MA)

The MA Interior Design course is the final stage in the development of a professional interior designer. The National Design Academy’s MA Interior Design is the UK’s only, truly flexible online Master’s degree in interior design.


Successful graduates from NDA BA (Hons) courses are offered a guaranteed progression route onto the Master’s degree. Direct entry onto the MA Interior Design from students who have studied elsewhere are also welcome. See Entry requirements for this course.

NDA students can complete this course in approximately 18 months or can take up to 3 years. Study time is flexible.

The MA degree course will allow you to further develop your critical thinking and research skills and is designed for students who are looking for a career in design at management level, or to widen their existing skills for the benefit of their own design practice.

The MA will help to create many different career opportunities for graduates as it shows that not only do they have an advanced knowledge of interior design but also the research skills required to maintain their future development.

The MA Interior Design is taught as an online distance learning course through the NDA’s bespoke Virtual Learning Studio (VLS). It is truly flexible, students can choose their own start date and study at times that fit around their work, family and lifestyle.

All of the degrees at the National Design Academy are fully-accredited by our Academic Partners, Staffordshire University and, on successful completion of their MA Interior Design, students are invited to attend a fabulous 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.
