RIBA announces Part 1, 2 and 3 memberships in major shake-up

RIBA announces Part 1, 2 and 3 memberships in major shake-up | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it

Graduates will soon be able to use new RIBA affixes after their name before qualification

 

Plans to modernise the RIBA’s membership structure have been approved by the institute’s council.

The changes, a result of the recent membership review, will see a graduate membership category introduced recognising academic achievement.

This category will distinguish between student members, students who have completed a Part 1 course, and those who have completed Part 2 and are enrolled on Part 3.

 

Part 1 students can use the affix ‘Student member of the RIBA’, while Part 2 students enrolled on a course can use the affix ‘Graduate member of the RIBA’

Students enrolled on a RIBA Part 3 course who are Part 1 and 2 qualified will be able to use a newly introduced ‘AssociateRIBA’ affix after their name.

Part III students will be able to use the AssociateRIBA affix

The changes also aim to acknowledge those who have studied architecture but pursued a career elsewhere, with a new affiliate membership class that will be open professionals from the wider construction and creative industries.

Alongside these changes, a new fellow membership class will recognise ‘architects at the height of their profession’ and will be judged on an individual architect’s merit and achievement.

The institution says the changes will ‘modernise the RIBA professional pathway’.

RIBA President Stephen Hodder said: ‘The RIBA is committed to providing membership that is valued, sustainable for the 21st century and above all stands for professional excellence and achievement. 

‘The upcoming changes to the membership offer will ensure that the RIBA encourages wider diversity, including EU & Internationally based architects, while not diminishing the high standards or status of RIBA chartered membership.

‘The changes have been developed following our recent membership review, the most comprehensive for in 25 years. These are important steps in providing an improved, streamlined membership offer that will deliver what our members have told us they want.’

RIBA Vice President, Membership Anthony Clerici said: 

‘Our exciting new programme for RIBA membership is the result of 18 months of extensive research and conversation with our members and the wider industry. The approval by the RIBA Council sets us on path to delivering a new and improved membership offer that reflects what our members want and need from a forward looking RIBA.’

The new membership categories

Student
For those enrolled on a Part 1 RIBA validated course, or successfully completed Part1 within past 2 years. Will be able to use the label: ‘Student member of the RIBA’.

Graduate
For those enrolled on a Part 2 RIBA validated course or completed Part 1 RIBA validated course and doing PEDR. Will be able to use the label: ‘Graduate member of the RIBA’.

Associate
For RIBA members who are Parts 1 and 2 qualified and enrolled on a Part 3 RIBA validated course or doing PEDR; or EU directive recognised qualified. Will be able to use new ‘AssociateRIBA’ affix.

Chartered
For RIBA members who are Parts 1,2 and 3 qualified; or EU directive recognised plus Part 3; or EU directive recognised plus 5 years’ experience (including 2 years PEDR & MEAP); or full MEAP assessment  for international qualification and experience. These members will continue to use the ‘RIBA’ affix.  

Fellow
This membership category is for architects who have been chartered RIBA members for 5 years or more with assessed evidence of distinguished achievement in architecture. Will be able to use new affix: ‘FRIBA’.

Affiliate
For members who are Part 1 or 2 qualified pursuing a career outside of the practice of architecture; or qualified co-professional working within the built environment, or non-architect qualified academics teaching in validated school of architecture. Can use the label: ‘Affiliate of the RIBA’.

The changes will be discussed further at the December RIBA council and it has not yet been confirmed when these new membership categories will come into play.
