May I please ask you to advise on my following case?
I possess a bachelor degree in Business from India. Additionally, I pursued MSc Construction Project Management from the U.K. Thankfully, I found a job in U.A.E in a company that deals with fire rated Facade in a project managerial role. Currently, the company has placed me in a project in Saudi Arabia - Highspeed Haramain Railway project. I have gathered 1.5 years of work experience in the facade field.
Since I have an obsession for design, I am desiring to do an architecture degree in Australia. The question is if I should choose a Bachelor degree in Arch. or directly a Master's in Arch. The intention is also to gain PR status in Australia so that I can gain the license.
Although, your advise has been in North America, I'd imagine with your extensive knowledge and passion, you could show me a pathway.____________
Thanks for reaching out.
But as you point out, my knowledge base is on becoming an architect in the U.S. not Australia. I truly do not know the answer you are asking for programs in Australia. To that end, I would suggest you contact the architecture programs directly and inquire as to whether you should apply to the BArch or the MArch.
I will state that architecture programs in the U.S. would welcome you to apply directly to a Master of Architecture degree with your previous education. Of course, the duration of the program for you would be 3-4 years.
I am sorry that I am not able to answer your question directly.
