The NPrA provides an alternative entry to the Architectural Practice Examination for experienced design practitioners who have not completed an architectural qualification.
The AACA’s National Program of Assessment is recognised by all Australian Architect Registration Boards as an alternate entry to the Architectural Practice Examination, successful completion of which is required prior to applying for registration as an architect.
The NPrA is a design exercise that tests candidates’ competency in architecture on the basis of their acquired knowledge and experience. The focus of the design exercise is to design a complex building in response to a hypothetical design brief. Applications for Stage 1 Eligibility close on 16 March 2020.
