Teaching and assessments

You will receive lectures from practising architects, academics, and consultants in seminars, and in consultation on an individual basis relating to case studies. Work assignments are based on your practical experience. Assessment is through work assignments relating to the study units, a written examination taken in your place of employment, documentary submission comprising practical training record (log book/ PEDR), case study, evaluation of practical experience, and an employer’s report. This culminates in the professional interview.

The written examination is taken over two days and assesses the candidates understanding and application, based on scenarios that replicate legal, management and contractual problems that arise in professional practice. The case study and evaluation of professional experience are components assessed by professional examiners.

Graduate careers

If you successfully completed the Part 3 exam, you will normally qualify for registration as an architect through the Architects Registration Board (ARB), and for chartered status with RIBA. Students on the course have worked from the largest practices such as Foster Associates to small sole practitioners such as dm3 architecture
