Registration requirements & application forms

The requirements for registration are consistent throughout Australia. Full details are available on the Architects Accreditation Council of Australian website.

If you are already registered and practicing as an architect in a State or Territory in Australia you can apply for registration under Mutual Recognition by completing an APPLICATION FORM,  providing evidence of your registration, you will also need to provide a brief curriculum vitae outlining your architectural experience in the past five years, and pay the appropriate fee.

The following three steps outline the requirements for registration as an architect:

  • have a recognised academic qualification in architecture or a pass in the National Program of Assessment (NPrA);
  • have a period of training through experience followed by successful completion of the AACA Architectural Practice Examination (APE); and
  • apply for registration to the Architects’ Board in the State or Territory in which registration is sought.
