RIBA Studio

​ RIBA Studio: RIBA Certificate and RIBA Diploma in Architecture

RIBA Studio Award Ceremony 2016 © Jackie King

Is RIBA Studio for me?

Do you want to complete your Part 1 or Part 2 at your own pace whilst investing your time in practice and earning a salary?

Does the idea of creating your own independent school of architecture appeal to you, appointing your own tutors to help you achieve your goals?

Are you currently based in practice anywhere in the UK, EU, EEA, Channel Islands or Isle of Man, and working under the supervision of a registered architect?

Student testimonials

'Taking the course has vastly improved my skill base, knowledge, attitude and confidence, allowed me to grow as a person and given me a route to qualification not offered anywhere else'

'The course has broadened my perspective on architectural thinking and set about widening my understanding of architecture as a whole'

'I have found that engaging in practice work and academic studies simultaneously has allowed me to improve in both areas, with each informing the other'

Essential information

We have a unique partnership with the School of Architecture at Oxford Brookes University who deliver the RIBA Studio courses on the Institute’s behalf.

The next intake is in March 2019 and applications are open now. The course fee for the 2019/20 registration year will be £2592 - and you'll need to factor in tutorial costs and travel to Oxford to attend workshops, exams and assessment days (a maximum of 8 days per year depending on the stage you are at).

Independent studying on top of full-time work requires not only personal commitment but also the support of your employer.

Eligibility details and further information can be found the RIBA Studio webpages on the Oxford Brookes University website.

The Programme is managed by Sam Hughes who can be contacted at the School of Architecture, Oxford Brookes University on 01865 483413 or email
