The Architects Registration Board (ARB)
The term “architect” is a protected title and can only be used by ARB-registered architects in legal jurisdictions extended to or agreed by ARB. The course is relevant to the UK and the EU and has variable transferability beyond the UK and its territories, where the relevant law of the land has precedent.

As part of this course you’ll:
  • Be eligible to join the ARB register and apply for chartered membership with RIBA upon successful completion
  • Learn through a flexible learning programme comprising a series of study blocks, an office-based examination (where you are employed) and a professional interview
  • Benefit from our close relationships with established practitioners, academics and leading consultants and learn from their experience

Guest lectures

You’ll have access to the INSIDE/OUT lecture series that brings together some of the most exciting names from the fields of art, architecture, design, fashion, film, music, performing arts and beyond. You can catch up on previous lectures by visiting the Leeds Arts Research Centre site.

Industry links

This course is delivered by tutors with extensive networks, giving you access to expert practitioners and consultants. We have links with a wide range of established architectural practices, so your learning will be enhanced by experienced external tutors.
