Preparatory course for the ARB prescribed exams
The RIBA offer a short preparatory course for the ARB prescribed examinations. These are the way in which overseas architectural qualifications are recognised in the UK. Passing the prescribed exams together with Part 3 will allow you to register as an architect in the UK.
The aim of this short course is to help you to prepare for the ARB Part 1 and 2 prescribed examinations. The sessions will introduce you to the process, explain the general criteria and graduate attributes and how to prepare your portfolio to demonstrate how you meet the criteria. The course also shows you how to identify and then fill gaps in your work with targeted exercises. The course also includes guidance on preparing your comparative matrix/commentary and supporting material and ends with advice from a former ARB examiner.
The course will be presented by the RIBA.
More information about the ARB prescribed examinations can be found on the ARB website.
