The RIBA is happy to announce that it will be offering a provision of the Part 3 course in Hong Kong commencing January 2015.

RIBA Part 3 Hong Kong

The RIBA will be offering a provision of the Part 3 course in Hong Kong commencing January 2015, having successfully gained accreditation from the Hong Kong Education Bureau (HKEB) in July 2013. Course Registration Number: 352367

This means that those students who have successfully completed their Part 1 and Part 2 in the UK/EEA, together with the required practical training experience, but who are currently working overseas would be eligible.

This expansion to the current RIBA Part 3 provides a local route to complete their UK Education and upon successful completion of the course and examination give them the opportunity to register with both ARB and RIBA (unless you hold RIBA overseas validated qualifications).

The demand for this opportunity has increased significantly with many UK post part 2 students seeking work abroad and importantly the withdrawal of Tier 1 post study work visas which will affect the overseas students who have studied in the UK.


The RIBA Part 3 course being delivered in Hong Kong and the UK are fundamentally the same course, therefore eligibility requirements remain the same. To check if you’re eligible please read the document below.

If you’re still unsure on your eligibility then please complete the expression of interest form and we will get back to you ASAP with your options.
