This programme is currently under review and as such some of the module credits and content discussed in this webinar may change for the intake from September 2022.  Amendments will be limited to the final year Post Graduate Certificate Part 3 element of the programme only, not the preceding Part 2 MArch programme.  Please contact our Degree Apprenticeship Team for the latest developments.  

Offering an alternative route to Part 2 and 3 qualification, our master's-level architect degree apprenticeship programme combines the best of practice experience and research-led education. It gives apprentices the opportunity to use their academic studies to enrich their real-world experience, which exponentially enhances their learning and confidence, and enables them to make significant contributions to their practice’s research, projects and networks.

This webinar session offers the chance to learn more about how our architect degree apprenticeship can help architect graduates take the next step in their career and enable architectural practices to attract and retain top-talent in a cost-effective way. The webinar covers:

Funding options

There is also a short presentation from a current apprentice. 

Who is the webinar for?

This webinar is designed for Part 1 Architectural Assistants, and their employers, who are interested in finding out more about this alternative route to qualification as a registered Architect. 

Apprentices must be employed in a role that allows them to develop the skills, knowledge and behaviours of an Architect.
