Congratulations on passing the final year of your Master of Architecture (or similar) degree. Now to the next step - Registration as an Architect. 

Here, Graduates can find out about the requirements to register as an Architect, including

  • qualifications recognised for registration
  • Architectural Practice Examination (APE)

as well as how to go about applying for the APE, registering as an architect, and how you can refer to yourself before registration. 

To be registered as an architect you must have an approved qualification recognised for registration by the Architectural Practice Board of SA, and have passed the Architectural Practice Examination.
