Summary

**The Postgraduate Diploma in Architectural Practice brings students to the final stage of their architectural training and will be ready for architectural practice**

The Postgraduate Diploma in Architectural Practice brings students to the final stage of their architectural training. Upon successful completion, students can apply to join the UK's register of architects.

The programme is rooted in the description, explanation and analysis of aspects of current professional practice. It also demands that students examine and debate their own methods of working in the light of taught input. Consequently, applicants should normally be engaged in full-time architectural practice in the UK and be fully prepared to share their experience with their fellow students.

The viva included in this programme is held at the culmination of studies where the candidate demonstrates to examining professionals that they have fully benefited and learnt from their prior professional experience.

In the Janus paper ('Looking back, Looking ahead') students review their experience and reflect on what - and how - they've learned from it. They consider their needs for future development and their career plans. There are mechanisms to allow students, upon written request, to break their studies for personal or professional reasons. This can be done at certain milestones in the programme, provided agreement has been obtained from the Department.

**Time commitment**
Students usually attend lectures one evening a week during the autumn and spring terms, with occasional one-day specialist courses.

**Facilities**
The Department is based in a new state of the art building designed by the award winning architects Heneghan Peng; it is equipped with fourteen rooftop landscapes, cutting edge digital workshops, extensive design studios, a world-class library and two gallery spaces.

Our building is located in the heart of Greenwich, the newest addition to a suite of magnificent buildings that occupy the UNESCO World Heritage site and the location of the Greenwich Prime Meridian.

**Outcomes**
The aims of the programme are to:

* Prepare students for registration as architects in the UK

* Address and define new trends and knowledge in the field of architectural practice

* Create self-reflective professionals who have the knowledge, drive and determination to succeed in the world of contemporary architecture.

**Professional recognition**
Successful completion of this programme gives the graduate exemption from ARB/RIBA Part 3 examinations and eligibility to join the ARB register.
