January 2018 : Norwich University of the Arts BA

Institution : Norwich University of the Arts

Award : All Bachelors' Degrees

Description : Pale grey, lined with powder blue, bound 1" on all edges with bright gold.

Shape : CNAA [a1]

Founded in 1845 as the Norwich School of Design, it awarded CNAA degrees from 1975. It gained Universty College status, with taught degree awarding powers, in 2007, and gained University status in 2012, although its research degrees are still validated elsewhere. The hoods are of very pale grey, lined with powder blue, and bound with deep gold, and follow the grade-hood system. The differences lie in the width of the binding, and the shapes, award up to bachelor level being CNAA [a1] shape, those above being London [f3] shape.
