This is excellent. My girlfriend Shima is from Iran, and completed her Architecture studies in Iran, started her practice there.... She has come to UK and is a refugee now. Her documents are not accessible, but she can prove her studies with architecture and prove her ability to work in this country, hopefully through this route.
I was wondering whether you did these courses you describe in the article while working in an architecture practice (is it required?) or did you need to make sure you had time to just concentrate on these part 1-3 courses/exams?
She is thinking of working and studying at the same time; but I can imagine it would be a very heavy workload!
Thanks again for all your elaboration. There is nothing clearer we have found to describing the complexity of the process but more happily a way to hopefully proceed. :-)
