New scholarships available for PDip Architectural Practice (Part 3)

The Kent School of Architecture and Planning (KSAP) are excited to announce the availability of five partial scholarships for students wishing to study the new PDip Architectural Practice (Part 3) course in September 2020.

The PDip Architectural Practice enables students to complete their professional training and follows the ARB’s criteria for Part 3, thereby enabling graduates who have completed all three examinations to apply for professional registration as Architects in the UK. We are currently seeking ARB prescription and RIBA validation.

The programme draws on the academic and professional knowledge with the Kent School of Architecture and Planning and explores alternative building procurement strategies, reflecting innovative practice based on published sources and the staff team’s personal experience. UK practice is presented in a wider International context, meeting ARB’s criteria and equipping graduates to work in a wide range of professional roles and environments.

Find out more about the course on the website, and from current student, Bradley Sowter.

The Outstanding Student Practitioner Award is funded by the Kent School of Architecture and Planning for students starting on the PDip Architectural Practice (Part 3) course in September 2020. The award consists of a 50% fee waiver at the current tuition fee.
