has anyone else applied for architecture degree apprenticeships and if so,
is it similar to an actual job?
do you need to build skills before hands?
and is there any tips for architecture?

Hi,

We have some architecture interns now at our office in London. It more hands-on experiential learning strongly encouraged by the RIBA [Royal Institute of British Architects] and accepted by the ARB.

It is similar to an actual job, but you wouldn't be expected to work as an assistant on your first year, as you would be slowly learning skills, knowledge and understanding of the field through practical tasks and shadowing the work of architects, whilst also contributing.

This might be a very good way to get into an architectural practice and learn how a company operates. However, the down-side might be that you won't get the creative experience that architectural education brings from a university perspective – theories of design etc.

I would always encourage self-led learning of skills beforehand; such as a 3d Cad software, trying some drawing, sketching, understanding of materials, and a general passion towards the built environment...

Does this help?

Best Regards,

Vili
