Applicants must also submit documentary evidence of practical experience to conform with the RIBA Practical Training Scheme.

The course is delivered through lectures, personal tutorials and small group seminars. You will acquire and develop formal knowledge in the fields of statute and common (or case) law, professional conduct, contract administration, communication technique and industrial organisation. You are encouraged to gain familiarity with CAD and project management applications, and use word processing and spreadsheet material.
You will be assessed in four ways. There are three elements of coursework and documentation related to practical experience and its assimilation, in the form of a case study, a completed RIBA Practical Training Record or its equivalent and a critical self-evaluation. The fourth part of the assessment consists of two unseen examinations. A final viva voce examination assesses all four elements in a summative context.
RIBA Part 3 and subsequent registration with the Architects Registration Board (ARB) allow you to practice with the title of Architect in the United Kingdom and European Community.
