Honours Presentations

Part 3 is the final examination in architecture, and successful candidates qualify to register in the UK as architects. Open to both AA graduates and eligible non-graduates, the course and examination is held twice a year and is supervised by External Examiners appointed by the AA. We recommend preregistering for this course. While this does not reserve you a place on the course, it will allow you regular contact with the Professional Studies Advisor and correspondence from us regarding registration opening and closing dates each term.
