hey guys

im going to apply for a MArch in one of the UK's schools. lets imagine my portfolio and the application stuff is ok, but is it technically possible to apply for RIBA part 2 without passing examinations for part 1?

on architects registration board i've read that:

-"All other applicants (non-recognized UK and Overseas qualifications) will need to pass the Board’s own Prescribed Examination at the relevant level if they wish to progress towards registering as an architect in the UK. "

-"Applicants for the Part 1 Examination must have successfully completed a three year course of study; applicants for Part 2 must already hold Part 1 and have completed two further years of postgraduate study in architecture. "

 

so for example can i enter the MArch course and during the first year of study pass the examination for part 1?

 

thanks in advance

Can you list some of the M Arch ( RIBA part II , professional degree) courses that do not require part I or equivalent degree?
 Do you hold any degree in arch e,g BA or Bsc in arch ? Is it recognised by the ARB/RIBA?
How could you pass an exam for part I without any qualification ?

sorry,didnt mention that

yeah, im holding ukrainian BArch 4,5 year degree and now doing my last semester for so called "specialist" which is not equal to MArch. They are both not recognised by ARB/RIBA, but unis count them.

Like TU Delft (in Russia article) http://www.tudelft.nl/en/study/studying-at-the-tu-delft/admission-and-application/msc-with-international-degree/admission-requirements/countries-q-z/

UCL http://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-students/international-students/country-information/europe/ukraine/entry-requirements

and others.but im not sure whether it corresponts to architecture

so the question is: do i need particulary RIBA part 1 in order to get into UCL or other UK MArch course?

I've got a Bachelor of Environmental Design from an Australian university and plan to do my M.Arch in the UK. It turns out RIBA doesn't recognise Australian degrees, so I don't have a part I exemption.

Some unis like Liverpool state that it is up to us to sit for the RIBA exam, pre- or post-M.Arch. From what I understand, the significance of having RIBA exemptions is that it lets us go on to take the Part III exam to register as an architect in the UK.

But.. what if I don't plan to become a registered architect in the UK? I'm from Malaysia, and my reason for going to the UK is to develop a wider perspective and.. you know, just experience life elsewhere. Break out of my comfort zone and whatnot.

Is there a way I could convince the university admissions authority that I don't really require the RIBA exemption, but just the M.Arch?
