RIBA Student Destination Report 2016

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned reportpeer-review


The RIBA Student Destinations Survey is a partnership project between the RIBA and the University of Sheffield. It is a study to be delivered over a ten-year period. It is currently in its sixth year.

The project has been designed to provide a picture of the employment situation for RIBA Part I graduates. At present very little is known about where RIBA Part 1 graduates eventually end up working, such as:
• What proportion of graduates stay in the profession?
• The effect of student fees on who enters architectural education?
• If graduates leave the profession, why do they leave and how useful was their education in securing work in another field?
• How prepared are graduates to move to other parts of the world to find employment?

We need this information in order to inform architectural education in the future, improving the employability of RIBA Part 1 graduates and to gain a better understanding of what happens when graduates leave school to join the profession. Therefore, this information is crucial to the future development of the profession.
