Our course is validated by RIBA to provide exemption from Part Two examinations, and is prescribed by the Architects Registration Board (ARB) for the purpose of entry onto the UK Register of Architects.
This course is suitable for students wishing to fulfil the educational requirements of the RIBA Part 2, before moving on to Stage 2 practical experience.
Where do MArch Architecture graduates from NTU work?
After completion of this course, the majority of graduates seek employment in architectural practises to work towards their Part 3 examinations, in preparation for an eventual full RIBA/ARB professional qualification.
The Architecture (ARB or RIBA Part 2) course from Nottingham Trent University has been designed to maximise the employability prospects of our graduates, equipping you with professional skills as well as enhancing and developing your design skills, technical knowledge and ability to communicate your ideas.
Graduates have gone on to hold various architectural roles in companies such as Davidsons Development, Marchini Curran Associates and HKR Architects amongst others, whilst working towards their Part Three examinations.
