The ARB and the RIBA have come to an agreement over procedures for the validation of architecture courses. The RIBA will run a new visiting board system that will validate courses without the input of the ARB.

However, the ARB will require schools to provide evidence that their courses are of sufficient quality. The RIBA, which will now maintain a direct relationship with the schools, has agreed to create a modern system of peer review. RIBA president Paul Hyett said: 'Once again we are free to liaise with schools directly over the contents of their exams and the appropriateness of their courses.'
