About the course

This course is the last stage of the formal education leading to qualification and registration as an architect in the UK.

It focuses on the legal, procedural, professional and managerial competencies needed to engage in architectural practice as a critical and reflective practitioner.

You will be taught by professionals, established practitioners and experts. We also provide additional value with Professional Practice Podcasts. The course covers the RIBA criteria for Part 3 prescribed by the ARB.

The Part 3 assignments mean that there are no exams. At the end of your course, you will present Professional Experience Development Records (PEDRs), Case Study Volumes, a Scenario-Based report, and then sit the viva voce.
