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.
The 2021 National Standard of Competency for Architects (NSCA) will be implemented in the National Program of Assessment from 2022.
Timetable for the 2022 program is here.
Applications close on 31 January 2022.
