The Update in Architectural Management course is aimed primarily at candidates for the ARB/RIBA Part 3 Examination in Professional Practice and Management, but will be useful to recently qualified architects, particularly those coming to the UK from another country, who may wish to refresh or add to their knowledge of a wide range of topics pertinent to architectural management.

Most people attending the course will have completed a UK part 1 & Part 2 and will have had around two years of professional experience. Most will aim to sit the Part 3 with APEAS, the Scottish Examination Authority, but the course is open to anyone.

The course cannot cover the full extent of knowledge required for the Part 3, but is designed to update your knowledge and understanding across the five areas of the ARB/RIBA Part 3 criteria namely:

  • Professionalism
  • Clients, users and delivery of services
  • Legal framework and processes
  • Practice and management
  • Building procurement

The 2019 course will run from Wednesday 12th June to Friday 14th June.  The course runs for three full days and is intensive, running from 9am to 6pm each day. The final day normally ends with a drinks reception.

The structure starts with broad issues and moves into application. Each day is divided into thematic ‘Sessions’ in a logical sequence, roughly following the progress of a typical project as follows:

Day 1

  • Session 1: Clients
  • Session 2: Practices
  • Session 3: Teams

Day 2

  • Session 4: Jobs
  • Session 5: Legislative framework

Day 3

  • Session 6: Contracts
  • Session 7: Procurement
  • Session 8: Examination
