New Part 3 course launches in Belfast

  • 1 Comment

A new ‘flexible’ privately-funded Part 3 course has launched in Belfast

The ARCex programme is not tied to a university teaching Parts 1 and 2, but solely focuses on the final examinations required to become an architect.

ARCex, which isn’t bound either by the academic and financial frameworks of a university, is a privately funded entity which has developed its own Part 3 course accredited by the Architects’ Registration Board (ARB).

Set up by former head of Queen’s University’s architecture school Lawrence Johnston and local architect Neil Mathews, the course’s advisory board includes former RIBA librarian Gordon Kelly, Grainne Mallon of Dublin-based Grainne Mallon Associates, and Westminster Part 3 tutor Stephen Brookhouse.

With tuition fees of just £800, the course, being run from a Belfast business park, will cost significantly less than other Part 3 courses. The RIBA’s own Part 3 course costs £1,575 while the Bartlett’s is £3,000.

Run through a series of 10 lecture days, the remaining time is spent in practice.

Open to students with both Part 1 and 2 alongside a minimum of 24 months prior experience in practice, the year-long course will take on its first students this January.
