Summary

This course will prepare you for undertaking Part 3 of the ARB/RIBA Examination in Architecture - the final stage of qualification as an Architect in the UK.

The course comprises a single module: Professional Practice and Management in Architecture, which focuses on application of the skills and knowledge required for the professional practice of architecture in today's society.

Whilst working in architectural practice, you will prepare a detailed Case Study of a project in which you have been involved and you will prepare a Personal Evaluation Report of your professional experience. The module includes a short course of full-time study at the University, during which lectures, tutorials and workshops will address the obligations and responsibilities of professional practice as an Architect in the UK.

The course concludes with an ‘Office-based Assignment’ in which you will be expected to demonstrate your competence, professional awareness, knowledge and ability in the contexts of the management architectural practice, the procurement of buildings and the supervision of building construction, and the legislation relating to Planning procedures and the construction of buildings in the UK, followed by a ‘viva voce’ examination conducted by a panel of professional architectural practitioners (referred-to as the ‘Professional Interview’).

Successful completion of the course leads to Registration as an Architect and Chartered Membership of the RIBA, subject to the conditions for Registration imposed by the ARB and Rules for Membership of the RIBA.

Materials: You will need to supply your own books and materials for personal study and provide printed copies of the documents required for assessment. The cost of these items in recent years has been in the order of £300 - £600. These costs will vary and indicative costs are given as a guide only. There will also be costs associated with travelling to the University for lectures, tutorials, workshops and examinations conducted at the University. These costs will vary contingent upon the distance travelled and any arrangements necessary for overnight accommodation.
