Study type Taught

Summary

This course 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.
