Before deciding what, and how, to study, it is recommended that you decide if your future career will be as a Chartered Architectural Technologist or as a professionally qualified Architectural Technician. You can choose to qualify as either, or both, during your career.
To become a Chartered Architectural Technologist, you should enrol on a CIAT Accredited Honours degree or equivalent in Architectural Technology. Alternatively, you can progress with an equivalent Honours degree in a built environment subject.
To become a professionally qualified Architectural Technician, you can enrol on a Higher Diploma (HND) or Foundation degree or equivalent in Architectural Technology or built environment subject.
Entry onto any of these programmes will be subject to the individual college/university requirements.
The Institute Accredits Honours degree level programmes, Accredits Masters degree level programmes and Approves Foundation degree level programmes.
