Summary

Successful completion of this postgraduate architecture course gives you recognition for RIBA Part 3, registration with the Architects Registration Board (ARB), direct access to title as an architect and therefore gain membership of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).

There are two separate entry and completion points per year, providing a flexible approach to obtaining the final professional qualification. Intensive two-day lecture and workshop sessions are supported by weekend revision and study groups, which allow the course to be delivered harmoniously alongside your existing work commitments.

**What's covered in the course?**
Aimed at students engaged in architectural practice, this postgraduate course gives you the skills and knowledge to gain your qualification. It can also form the basis of your ongoing professional architectural development.

You will gain a critical understanding of legal requirements, practice management and construction procurement in the architecture industry, and the fundamentals of good architectural practice.

You will receive the support of outstanding professional staff whose extensive connections with architectural practices offer you exceptional opportunities. Lectures are delivered in four two-day intensive courses by a number of leading practitioners and experts in their field. They cover the legal framework, clients and building procurement, as well as practice and management.

Based on your own experience in architectural practice, you will be required to prepare a case study in two parts, one around a pre-contract issue and one around an issue arising during the construction phase of a contract. You will also use records of experience to develop a critical career appraisal.
You will be based in our multi-million pound City Centre Campus Parkside Building with access to advanced digital studios for rapid prototyping and digital production, as well as drawing, CAD and digital visual communication skills workshops.
