Course content

On this programme, students will acquire an in-depth understanding of the legal and economic aspects of architectural practice and construction procurement, and the related skills necessary to practice effectively on entry into the architectural profession.

The programme is designed to be undertaken whilst in full-time employment within an architectural practice or related construction industry organisation. It is taught by blended learning methods using the internet, and supplemented by short on-site courses.

The Diploma is prescribed by the ARB in relation to entry on the register of architects, and validated by the RIBA as equivalent to the RIBA Examination in Professional Practice (the Part 3). The previous incarnation of this Diploma course, which ran in 2016/17 received commendations from successive RIBA Visiting Boards including from the latest, in July 2016, where it was commended for its ‘breadth, depth and rigour’.
