Course Introduction

The Postgraduate Diploma in Architectural Practice brings students to the final stage of their architectural training and will be ready for architectural practice. The programme is rooted in the description, explanation and analysis of aspects of current professional practice. It also demands that students examine and debate their own methods of working in the light of taught input. The aims of the programme are to: prepare students for registration as architects in the UK; address and define new trends and knowledge in the field of architectural practice; create self-reflective professionals who have the knowledge, drive and determination to succeed in the world of contemporary architecture.

Students are assessed through: four written papers; presentations; an essay evaluating the student's professional development; a case study on an office project, and a viva (a professional interview with experienced examiners). After successful completion of this programme, students can pursue careers as architects.
