On this Diploma programme, students will acquire an in-depth understanding of the legal and economic aspects of architectural practice and construction procurement, and the related skills necessary to practice effectively on entry into the architectural profession.

The programme is designed to be undertaken whilst in full-time employment within an architectural practice or related construction industry organisation. It is taught by blended learning methods using the internet (including on-line seminars and tutorials), normally supplemented by short on-site courses (but see ‘how will I be taught’ for special provisions for 20/21). The full-time version is a fast track route allowing completion within nine months.

The Diploma is prescribed by the ARB in relation to entry on the register of architects, and validated by the RIBA as equivalent to the RIBA Examination in Professional Practice (the Part 3). The previous incarnation of this Diploma course, which ran until 2016/17 received commendations from successive RIBA Visiting Boards including from the latest, in July 2016, where it was commended for its ‘breadth, depth and rigour’.
