Is it for you? – Are you fascinated by buildings and structures? – Is planning, developing and working on projects your cup of tea? – Have you got an eye for detail and usability of spaces?

Top Tips:

  • Chartered Accountants are required to do 35 hours of CPD (Continuing Professional Development) a year – demonstrate in your applications and at interview that you are keen to develop yourself professionally and personally
  • Do your research – it’s not all about designing amazing buildings! Chartered Architects can also work as Surveyors, Town Planners and Inspectors. Research which area of architecture is most appealing and suits your skills before applying
  • There are lots of study/training routes available, so do not worry if you cannot do a full time degree. See below for our handy resources and links for further information
