2. Procedure... Plan a strong college preparatory program with courses in English, History, and other humanities subjects, mathematics, including geometry, trigonometry, algebra, and pre-calculus, and physics. Humanities courses will sharpen your communication skills and your ability to put things into context. Art courses - drawing, painting, sculpture, or photography - will be helpful in developing your ability to visualize and conceptualize, which are both important skills to an architect. 3. A bachelors degree is required first and foremost and is known as Part 1. Usually lasting three years of full-time study, the undergraduate degree in architecture also gives you free student membership to RIBA. On completion of your undergrad degree, Part 2 can be commenced. This part of the process enhances your overall architectural knowledge and looks at project complexity. Whilst the actual qualification varies between institutions (BArch, Diploma, MArch), the stage generally takes two years of full-time study to complete 4. . You can choose to study at the same institution, or search for an architecture course at a different university. Most courses are design-based and rely heavily on project work that is undertaken throughout the course. This part of architectural study allows you to enhance key ideas and skills. Architecture students also attend lectures, seminars and tutorials, along with field trips to interesting and important buildings. The final stage of your architectural training, known as Part 3, requires you to complete a minimum of two years in professional training prior to your final exams. 5. 5 The role of the architect Designer Advocate 6. 6 The role of the architect Designer Advocate 7. 7 Architect as Advocate The sole duty of an architect is to serve the public, to meet and surpass, if possible, a client's needs.
