​​Qualifying with the RIBA overseas

RIBA Part 3 Overseas

The overseas RIBA Part 3 course and examination has now become an established route to registration in the UK for suitably-qualified students in architectural practices in Asia, Middle East and the USA.

The opportunity to qualify outside the UK has proved to be attractive to overseas employers who can now offer talented students a route to registration.

The course allows students to continue their professional development while working abroad and without having to return to the UK for either work experience or further study.

For more information and how to apply for the RIBA Part 3 course and examination, please visit one of our course location pages:

The RIBA offer a short preparatory course for ARB prescribed exams to help individuals, with overseas architectural qualifications, prepare for the ARB Part 1 and 2 prescribed examinations.

In addition to this we also offer one-to-one individual tutorials/portfolio review sessions, at which applicants meet with a reviewer to go through their portfolio, in preparation for the ARB Prescribed Exams.
