In 2021, ARB commenced a major review into modernising architectural education and training.
Throughout this review, are engaging with a variety of stakeholders; and this feedback is informing the development of our upcoming proposals for changes to the way in which we accredit (prescribe) qualifications, the Standards institutions must meet, and the Competencies students must be able to demonstrate.
Our current aim – subject to further consultation and Board approval – is to begin implementing changes in the later stages of 2023. If your institution is considering seeking accreditation of a new qualification in future, you should contact us after the new accreditation process, Standards and Competencies have been approved in 2023.
Please refer to the modernising architectural education and training page regularly for updates – information about the transition plan and timeline will be available early in 2023, along with the proposals for Standards and Competencies, and details of further consultation.
