​​Qualifying with the RIBA overseas

The RIBA offers a provision of the Part 3 course in Hong Kong and UAE.

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 your UK Education and upon successful completion of the course and examination should give you the opportunity to register with both ARB UK 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.

Individuals with at least five years' architectural qualifications from overseas may also be eligible to undertake this course and should check the eligibility section in the prospectus.

NB: It is a matter of discretion for individual employers to recognise any qualifications to which this course may lead.
