Applications for 2021 National Program of Assessment (NPrA) close on 1 March

The National Program of Assessment (NPrA) provides an alternative entry to the Architectural Practice Examination for practitioners who have relevant experience under the supervision of an architect but have not  completed an accredited architectural qualification.  

The National Program of Assessment is a design exercise that tests candidates’ competency in design based on their acquired knowledge and experience. Candidates must design a complex building in response to a hypothetical design brief.  See here for information about the program, including assessors and past applicants talking about the program.
