Course summary

Course summary

In light of the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation the RIBA Part III continues as usual with teaching including tutorials and lectures being delivered online. We are committed to supporting our Part III students and facilitating the completion of this course.

This third and final adjunct of architectural education is designed to take place during the second period of mandatory practical training after the completion of the Part 2.

The course can be completed in 12 to 24 months, according to employment circumstances. Graduates of the course receive a Postgraduate Diploma in Architectural Professional Practice and can apply for registration with ARB, and for Chartered membership of the RIBA. On this course, you will take modules totalling 120 credits.

The Diploma is the final part of an architectural student’s professional training and the culmination of a minimum of seven years’ education and professional development. The content of the course and each module builds on the professional experience and knowledge that you will have gained over this period.

Lecture sessions will be delivered in a multi-mode format including online webcast allowing you to watch online from your workplace or home or attend the campus when it reopens. All lectures are recorded enabling you to catch up in your own time or watch them again.

Subject to approval from the Architects Registration Board (ARB), we will be conducting the orals online for the foreseeable future.

Career Path

The Diploma in Professional Practice in Architecture is a professional qualification leading to registration as an architect with ARB and professional membership of the RIBA. Students who have successfully completed the course have obtained senior positions or taken greater responsibility in architectural practice, developed their own architectural practice and also gone on to work overseas. Former students have also developed specialism in construction law. The Diploma may also form a platform for continuing study in academia and research and may lead to study for an MPhil/PhD degree.
