Architectural Practice PG Dip - RIBA Part 3


Course Description

The Architectural Practice Post- Graduate Diploma (PG Dip) is a qualification leading to exemption from the ARB/RIBA Part III examinations. Successful candidates gain eligibility to join the register at the Architects’ Registration Board (ARB) and chartered membership with the RIBA.

The course offers a flexible learning programme comprising three-day study blocks from November to November, a final two-day exam (which can be taken in the office where you are employed) and a professional interview. The Leicester School of Architecture (LSA) PG Dip enjoys an excellent reputation, close relationships with established practitioners, academics and leading consultants, who provide a wide exposure to topical issues in contracts, law, economics and management. The PG Dip is offered in collaboration with University of Nottingham.

Graduate careers

If you successfully complete the PG Dip in Architectural Practice, you will gain exemption from ARB/ RIBA Part III examinations, and you may then apply to join the register of ‘Architects’ with the ARB and for chartered member status with RIBA. You would then be able to use the title ‘Architect’ and have access to markets that ARB registration affords.
