RIAI Transition Year Programme

The RIAI Transition Year Programme guidance provides support to Architectural Practices who take on Transition Year Students.

The RIAI guide is a framework for a one-week transition year student placement in an Architect’s office. The intention is for these students to develop genuine skills in design development, research, presentation techniques and gain experience in a variety of industry applications.

Working alongside their assigned mentor, the project is set out in 6 stages over a number of days, culminating in the presentation of the student’s work from concept to final design. The guide sets out the tasks for both mentor and student.
