Entry requirements

Entrants will normally be required to hold undergraduate (ARB Part 1) and graduate (ARB Part 2) qualifications.

Exceptionally students who do not hold such qualifications but can demonstrate an equivalent academic ability and depth of professional experience may be enrolled but would need ARB Part 1 and Part 2 qualifications prior to applying for professional registration.

Please contact the School for further information, email: ksapadmissions@kent.ac.uk

All applicants are considered on an individual basis and additional qualifications, professional qualifications and relevant experience may also be taken into account when considering applications.

Months of entry

January

Course content

You can start this postgraduate degree in January. If you’re taking a career break to study this could be the best option for you. A January start also works well for overseas students as it allows more time to meet visa requirements. Find out more here.

This programme enables students to complete their professional training and follows the ARB’s criteria for Part 3, thereby enabling graduates who have completed all three examinations to apply for professional registration as Architects in the UK. We are seeking ARB prescription and RIBA validation.

The programme draws on the academic and professional knowledge with the Kent School of Architecture and Planning and explores alternative building procurement strategies, reflecting innovative practice based on published sources and the staff team’s personal experience. UK practice is presented in a wider International context, meeting ARB’s criteria and equipping graduates to work in a wide range of professional roles and environments.
