AACA has published a detailed benchmarking comparison of architectural education and registration requirements in key APEC economies, viewable through a customisable online matrix on the website http://comparison.aaca.org.au/. An important component of the project is an in-depth profile of the architectural profession in Australia.
The AACA has recently conducted reviews of the Review of Academic Equivalence (RAE), Review of Graduate Equivalence (RGE) and the National Program of Assessment (NPrA).
These programmes have been refined to improve programme clarity of purpose and streamline requirements to assist Applicants in their transition to registration in Australia.
The RAE/RGE will be replaced by Stage 2: Final Overseas Qualification Assessment, with applications opening on 22 June 2015 and;
NPrA 21 in 2015 will be open for applications at the end of July.
In Australia, the eight states and territories regulate the architecture profession. Each jurisdiction has its own Architects Act and Architect Regulations. The AACA has commissioned a report that provides an overview and comparison of the differences and similarities of each.
