I got an offer too and will probably make it my firm. They said that it is now RIBA accredited, does that mean it's a fully accredited architecture course?

Yh it basically means that if you take this course you don't have to take a RIBA part one examination.

The following is a quote from another thread that explains ARB/RIBA accreditation/validation:

"The ARB are the statutory body who maintain the register of people who are legally entitled to call themselves architects. So if you ultimately want to become an architect in the UK, the ARB accreditation arguably is the more important one, because this ensures the course’s paperwork is compliant with their requirements. The ARB and RIBA have a joint criteria which is the basis for the syllabus in every accredited and validated school of architecture. The RIBA validation process is a physical inspection of the school and the work and is, principally, concerned with quality: the ethos of the school, management and the learning environment, and the work produced by the students across all of their modules. New courses will (typically) apply for ‘candidate status’ from the RIBA which can then become full validation after the first cohort graduates."

Thanks for the video and the explanation. The course administrators said that they are confident that the Meng course would get the ARB accreditation next year, which seems to be what matters. If they did receive it while I was on the course would that still count as me completing a part 1 undergraduate degree?

I believe that it will count if the accreditation is in place by the time you graduate.
