Graduate Architect or Qualified Architect

Hello!

What's the difference between a graduate architect and a qualified architect here in the UK?


I have read about the Part 1, Part 2 , Part 3 and the Architect registered in hte ARB, and I understand all the stages to be an architect.


I am a spanish architect with 2.5 years of work experience who was qualified as an architect in Spain last november, but here in the UK.... graduate, qualified ???? I am trying to register in the ARB.

And have a title: Título oficial de arquitecto

+

You have a following 'Evidence of formal qualifications':

the official formal qualification of an architect (título oficial de arquitecto) awarded by the Ministry of
Education and Science or by the universities

It means that You just need additional 2,5 yrs of professional experience anywhere in EU to be granted by RIBA with official Part III (Chartered Architect). At the moment You can use a title of Architect (not chartered by RIBA) but It requires to upgrade your qualifications through ARB (body independent from RIBA). It means that You can conduct your independent projects on your own (for example as a self employed) or in architectural office (regarded as Architect). But of course you will be fully responsible for your actions and eventual failures - which means it is extremely important to be acquainted with British Law Regulations (especially building codes). Good Luck!

Thank you Marcelus!

At this moment, I am trying to register in the ARB. I am just waiting for one document that I need to provide to the ARB. Let’s hope I have it in the following days.

So, upgrading my qualifications through ARB I could use the title of Architect (not chartered by RIBA) and of course, I will be fully responsible for my actions.

However, I can’t apply for Part III vacancies but I can applied for a position as an architect with 2 years of experience.

Anyway, to be honest, at this moment, I am looking for a position as an assistant architect because I am not really acquainted with British Law Regulations.

The problem is that I don’t know how to sell myself at a job interview. Because I am not Part 1, nor Part 2, nor Part 3, nor chartered architect but I will be an architect registered in the ARB.

I am also thinking to join the RIBA as a RIBA Associate Member. I think I am granted with Part 1 and Part 2, and maybe start to study the Part III course.

Any piece of advice or suggestion??

Thanks!!!
