Architectural Practice

The course is a qualification leading to exemption from the ARB/RIBA Part III examinations. Successful candidates gain eligibility to join the register at the Architects' Registration Board (ARB) and chartered membership with the RIBA.

Entry requirements

ARB/RIBA part 1 and 2 exemption; applicants should be in full time work in a practice with an ARB registered architect. Students are automatically enrolled on the PEDR course, provided they can show they have 8 PEDR sheets completed by the time they take the professional interview in November. 4 of which must be post part 2. Qualified architects and built environment professionals can take 1 or more of the study modules for continuing professional development (CPD) but are not candidates for the award of the Postgraduate Diploma or RIBA part 3 exemption. Candidates whose 1st language is not English must have an IELTS score of 6.0 or equivalent. English language tuition, delivered by our British council accredited centre for English language learning, is available both before and throughout the course.

Course modules

Modules include: Marketing, management and practice; building contracts; architect and law.

Assessment methods

Assessment is through work assignments relating to the study units, a written examination taken in your place of employment, documentary submission comprising practical training record (log book/ PEDR), case study, evaluation of practical experience, and an employer's report. This culminates in the professional interview.
