Please consider the following MWE using the package biblatex-apa:

\RequirePackage{filecontents}

    \begin{filecontents*}{mybib.bib}
    @misc{website,
      title = {Wikipedia},
      url = {http://en.wikipedia.org/},
      urldate = {2013-08-27}
    }
    }
    \end{filecontents*}

    \documentclass[a4paper]{article}


    % Set the values for the bibliography
    \usepackage[
        style=apa,
        backend=biber
    ]{biblatex}

    \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

    % Set language
    \usepackage[british]{babel}
    \DeclareLanguageMapping{british}{british-apa}

    \addbibresource{mybib.bib}

    \begin{document}

    \cite{website}

    \printbibliography
    \end{document}

I noticed that the output of the in line citation for the date field is n.d. but in the bibliography is nodate. Is it possible to also output n.d. in the bibliography?

The biblatex-apa style defines the label date as follows

\DeclareLabeldate{%
  \field{pubstate}
  \field{date}
  \literal{nodate}
}

The labeldate is used when there is no date for a publication, thus one has to modify the definition above as follows:

\DeclareLabeldate{%
  \field{pubstate}
  \field{date}
  \literal{n.d.}
}
