Upon successful Architectural Professional Practice from Leeds Beckett University , you will be eligible to join the ARB register and apply for chartered membership with RIBA. The term architect is a protected title and can only be used by ARB-registered architects in legal jurisdictions extended to or agreed by ARB. The course is relevant to the UK and the EU and has variable transferability beyond the UK and its territories, where the relevant law of the land has precedent. 

You will benefit from a flexible learning programme comprising a series of concentrated study blocks, an office-based examination (where you are employed) and a professional interview. We have close relationships with established practitioners, academics and leading consultants, who will provide exposure to a wide range of topical issues in contracts, law, economics and management.


As a graduate, you will be able to gain the title and function of architect in the UK/EU via the registration or licensing bodies. Professional registration allows you endorsing privileges, legal title and status, as well as access to the professional market. As a fully qualified architect registered with the ARB, you will be able to secure employment with architectural practices, join a partnership or start your own practice.
