UK withdrawal from the European Union (BREXIT)
The United Kingdom left the European Union on 31 January 2020. A Transition Period was agreed, running from 31 January 2020 to 31 December 2020 – during which time, the UK and the EU were negotiating the terms of a Free Trade Agreement which should cover, amongst other things, provisions for mobility and the provision of professional services. The mutual recognition of qualifications is not part of this agreement.
Directive 2005/36/EC on the Mutual Recognition of Professional Qualifications (MRPQ) will no longer apply from 1 January 2021, so the arrangements currently set out in this Directive - including provisions for automatic recognition, recognition under the general system and temporary or occasional provision of services - no longer apply. On the websites of the Dutch Government and of the ARB you will find the latest information. We will be updating our information as we learn more.

Most people who have earned a degree from an accredited educational institute must first gain professional experience before being entitled to be registered in the Dutch Architects' Register.
If you are an architect who is trained and qualified for the profession of architect in another EU country, you may qualify for automatic recognition. This means that you don't have to do the professional traineeship in the Netherlands.
