Preparing for Practice

RSUA, in partnership with QUB, invites all Part 3 students due to take their exams in the Autumn to Preparing for Practice., which is an informal pre-exam discussion led by experts in their respective fields. This year the event will be held online using Microsoft Teams and will start with a short welcome from Donal MacRandal, RSUA President and close with a panel Q&A from the speakers.

Whilst this event is focused on helping Part 3 students prepare for their final exams it also provides a useful refresher to any recently qualified architects and can also be beneficial to Part 2 students. Indeed, all architects and architecture students are welcome to attend.

Topics for discussion include: 

  • How to approach fee calculations and activity schedules, (Martin Hare, Managing Director, McAdam Design)
  • Appointing consultants, (Paul Crowe – invited, Managing Director, TODD Architects)
