Description of Architecture: Examination in Professional Practice (RIBA 3)

Advertisement

This practice-based course will prepare you for managing architectural projects and is the final step toward registration as an architect in the UK

The course is designed to ensure high standards in the professional practice of architecture and to give you the opportunity to extend your area of competence. It focuses on the design process but tempers this concern with the knowledge and experience needed for ideas to become reality in a way that is ethical, economical, efficient and legal.

Students are recruited from a wide range of design professions in the construction industry, and the teaching will examine critical events in your own work experience, that of other course members and of the profession at large.

The course will also encourage you to feel confident with higher levels of professional responsibility. Our students have had considerable recent successes in the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) President's medals, winning the RIBA Silver Medal in 2002 and 2003, and the Bronze in 2004.

Career opportunities

RIBA Part 3 and subsequent registration with the Architects Registration Board (ARB) allow you to practice with the title of Architect in the United Kingdom and European Community.

Course Content

Course Structure

The course is delivered through lectures, personal tutorials and small group seminars. You will acquire and develop formal knowledge in the fields of statute and common (or case) law, professional conduct, contract administration, communication technique and industrial organisation. You are encouraged to gain familiarity with CAD and project management applications, and use word processing and spreadsheet material.

Assessment

The course is assessed in four ways. There are three elements of coursework and documentation related to practical experience and its assimilation, in the form of a case study, a completed RIBA Practical Training Record or its equivalent and a critical self-evaluation. The fourth part of the assessment consists of two unseen examinations. A final viva voce examination assesses all four elements in a summative context.

Requirements for Architecture: Examination in Professional Practice (RIBA 3)

All applicants to the course should either have RIBA Part 2 exemption by examination at a recognised UK or Eire school, or RIBA or ARB Part 2 exemption by interview. Applicants must also submit documentary evidence of practical experience to conform with the RIBA Practical Training Scheme.

In cases where exemption from the full year of post-Part 2 training is required, evidence of protracted experience at high levels of responsibility must be submitted, sufficient to allow the course tutor to endorse an application for exemption to the RIBA's Co-ordinator for Practical Training.
