Welcome to the Architects' Professional Examination Authority in Scotland Ltd .

All candidates have now been allocated to a course in order that they may upload their examination submission.  It would be helpful if candidates could check that they have access to the online system and contact APEAS as soon as possible if there are any problems.  It is now possible to upload any part of your submission, and this will allow a similarity check.

The ARB originally prescribed the Part 3 Examination in Professional Practice and Management as awarded by APEAS in 2003.  APEAS has been re-prescribed by ARB until 31st December 2021.

APEAS has also been successfully validated by RIBA until 2018 (we are currently in process of applying for re-validation)
