Months of entry
Our Postgraduate Certificate Professional Practice and Management in Architecture is the last stage in formal academic training and practical, work-based learning for architects. It's designed and structured to lay the foundation for 'life-long learning' in the architectural profession, and its primary purpose is to enable you to show competence in practice.
It stands out for its reflection of current thinking of the RIBA and the ARB, the objectives of the EU Architects' Directive, and the RIBA Core Curriculum requirements of Continuous Professional Development (CPD). CPD is available through short-course options, and further supports our excellent links with local architectural practices.
Direct industry and research input
This course is based in UWE Bristol's Faculty of Environment and Technology, and like other Architecture courses here, it's unique in offering a multidisciplinary environment that's geared towards the construction professions as a whole. The course team comprises qualified architects and a solicitor with a specialism in construction law, while the course content has contributions from lecturers across the department and industry specialists. This ensures the course is based on current and projected trends.
Architecture at UWE has a strong inter-disciplinary ethos and an excellent reputation in the industry. This course gives you access to the knowledge and Part-3 skills that relate directly to architectural practice, professionalism, and managing architecture's relationship with wider construction industry and society. These correspond to the requirements set out in the criteria published by the ARB/RIBA.
It also nurtures and develops the visual, written and oral communication skills vital to successful practice.
