Westminster University offers new short course which allows overseas applicants to prepare for ARB exams
The University of Westminster has launched a short course which will enable applicants with overseas architectural qualifications to prepare for ARB Part 1 and Part 2 Prescribed Examinations.
The course – the only programme of its kind in the UK – will run twice a year and will include advice on how to prepare for the ARB examinations, how to present student portfolios in order to meet ARB/RIBA criteria and interview skills.
Stephen Brookhouse, who is leading the team delivering the course, said: ‘I decided to design a short course that we could offer twice a year to suitably qualified professionals who have appropriate overseas qualifications and want to practice in the UK.’
He added: ‘The course will be delivered to small groups through a mixture of seminars and group work. We want to give applicants the very best opportunity of passing Parts 1 and 2 so that they can then progress to taking Part 3 and register as architects in the UK.’
