2019 NPrA (Competency based pathway to the APE) closing date extended to 31 May

The National Program of Assessment provides access to the Architectural Practice Examination for practitioners who have not completed an accredited architectural qualification. The National Program of Assessment is recognised by all Australian registration authorities as an alternate entry to the Architectural Practice Examination, successful completion of which is required prior to applying to a State or Territory registration board to become registered as an architect.

The National Program of Assessment 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. See here for information about the Program, including assessors and past applicant talking about the Program.
