The Part 3 lecture course is also available separately from the Postgraduate Diploma Part 3 Programmes. It provides lectures that deliver the awareness, understanding and knowledge required by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and the Architects Registration Board (ARB) for competence to practise. This course is available to anyone wishing to familiarise themselves with UK practice.
The course consists of around 40 lectures running between the beginning of January to mid-May. Topics covered include:
- Professional Ethics
- Historic Building Legislation
- CDM Regulations
- Contracts and Contract Law
- Employment Law and Practice Management
- Management Principles
- Dispute Management
The lectures are given by academics from various departments within UCL (including Architecture, Planning, Law and Management) and experts from external organisations and leading architectural practices (including ARB, RIBA, English Heritage, Sheppard Robson, CONSARC). The majority of lectures take place on Tuesday evenings between 6pm and 9pm. In addition there are monthly all day workshops that take place on Fridays.
The fee for attending the Lecture Only course is £750.
Candidates on the Part 3 Lectures Only course will have access to the Part 3 virtual learning environment where they will be able to download notes and presentations associated with the individual lectures. Attendees will also receive a bound hard copy of these notes at the end of the lecture series and a Certificate of Attendance.
