Becoming an architect

Part 3 Professional Examiners

Professional examiners are appointed by Schools of Architecture or the governing body of a Part 3 course provider. The primary role of the professional examiner is to assess individual candidates and report to the university or governing body that standards are appropriate and procedures followed.

Examiners are responsible for undertaking an evaluation of the Part 3 candidate's documentary submissions and also for assessing their competence for the practice of architecture via a professional oral interview.

The RIBA holds a register of Part 3 professional examiners, all of whom must be registered architects.

Requests to join the register can be made using the RIBA Professional Examiners Application Form, available from Joanna Parry.

Copies of the register can be requested by Heads of Schools and Professional Studies Advisors at any time by emailing Joanna Parry.
