UWE offers professional experience supervision for architecture students undertaking work in practice and who are completing a Professional Experience Development Record (PEDR). Supervision for students undertaking a minimum of 12 months experience is delivered through 2 non accredited modules:

  • Professional Experience Stage 1 - Architecture (code UBLLPJ-10-3)
  • Professional Experience Stage 2 - Architecture (code UBLMCN-10-M)

Both modules are available to all architecture students, regardless of which university they are/have been attending.

The Stage 1 module has a call back day which is generally held in February of each year. The Stage 2 module is typically linked to the UWE Part 3 Architecture course: Professional Practice and Management in Architecture, however students who have completed their Part 2 studies but who are not enrolled on the UWE Part 3 programme are still welcome to enrol.

Both modules provide supervision, advice and guidance.

For students who do not require a full 12 months of supervision, UWE also offers a one-off purchase option. This enables Stage 1 and 2 students to receive professional studies supervision per quarter (3 months) and to submit single Professional Experience Development Record (PEDR) sheets.

Students undertaking Part 3 who have accrued 6 years or more experience with a minimum of 12 months work in practice after commencing a Part 2 course may opt to complete Certificates of Experience in lieu of PEDRs. The certificates are required to be reviewed by a PSA or Part 3 programme leader. UWE offers this as a one-off purchase option.



A completed and signed individual PEDR record is submitted by post to the UWE professional studies advisor (PSA) Ann de Graft-Johnson for signing and feedback.
