A 2.1 Honours degree or international equivalent in architecture, which is recognised by the ARB as successful completion of RIBA Part 1, is preferred. Applicants with a lower or non-accredited qualification will be considered on individual basis providing they submit a strong portfolio and evidence of personal development. Applicants are preferred to have successfully completed a year in professional training.
