The Management, Practice and Law In Architecture PGDip (RIBA Part 3) represents the last part of the formal education of an architect in the UK, drawing on the knowledge and experience that students have gathered throughout their time in the design and construction industries.

The postgraduate diploma in Professional Practice at Brighton is a professionally recognised qualification, with successful completion of the course allowing candidates to register with the ARB and seek election as a member of the RIBA. The Part 3 course is led and delivered by active, award-winning architects and construction-industry professionals.

The Architecture RIBA Part 3 is the final stage of your architectural training and, on completion, qualifies you for registration with the Architect Registration Board (ARB). You will also officially be able to use the title 'architect' and become a charactered member of the RIBA.
