I have non-EU qualifications

If your qualification in architecture was awarded in a non-EU Member State and you have obtained the relevant post graduate professional licencing examination for admission to the profession in that state, you may apply to the RIAI to have your qualifications assessed for equivalence with the standard required for prescribed Irish qualifications under Route B.

If you have not completed the relevant post graduate professional licencing examination for admission to the profession in your state, or if the state where you were awarded the qualification does not require completion of a post-graduate professional licencing examination for admission to the profession but you have acquired seven or more years post-graduate practical experience, four of which have been in Ireland, you may apply for an exemption from the Professional Practice Exam. This is known as Route C.

If you cannot meet the professional licencing requirements of Route B or Route C you must complete the Irish Professional Practice Examination to be eligible for registration in Ireland.
