This qualification leads to exemption from the Architects Registration Board (ARB) and Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Part 3 examinations. Upon successful qualification, you will be eligible to join the ARB register and apply for chartered membership with RIBA. 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.

You will benefit from a flexible learning programme comprising a series of concentrated study blocks, an office-based examination (where you are employed) and a professional interview. We have close relationships with established practitioners, academics and leading consultants, who will provide exposure to a wide range of topical issues in contracts, law, economics and management.

INSIDE/OUT

The INSIDE/OUT lecture series offers historical, theoretical and critical analyses of art, architecture and design and welcomes internationally recognised practitioners to come and talk about their practice. Find out about forthcoming events on the INSIDE/OUT webpage

Research Excellence Framework 2014

Research Excellence Framework 2014: our University's results for the Architecture, Built Environment and Planning unit, which it entered for the first time, were impressive with 37% of its research being rated world leading or internationally excellent.

The course is designed for suitably qualified applicants to complete their studies in architecture and register with the Architects Registration Board (ARB). It also allows for membership of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). It is, by nature, a professional course and is evaluated with quality and standards improved through the RIBA Validation Panel at four year intervals and in accordance with the University requirements for course review.

We have links throughout the region, nationally and internationally with architectural practices, with external tutors coming from their own established practices to offer you the best possible tuition.
