By completing the course, you successfully pass the first Part of the Architects Registration Board (ARB) examination. Exemption from all the three parts gives you the chance to register as an architect with the ARB. If you continue your study at our University you become a fully qualified architect. However, the skills that you get from the course such as creative thinking, critical judgement and getting your message across through drawing and words, will definitely help you in other fields. With the portfolio that you will put together to showcase your work as part of the course, you are more likely to get a career in architecture. A few examples of the creative industries where you could work are: animation, graphic design, computer game design, film, fashion and interior design.
