I have a degree from another country

REGISTRATION REQUEST FOR FOREIGN DEGREE
In order to qualify for registration in the Architects’ Register on the basis of a foreign degree, your degree must be recognized first. Then we will determine whether or not you need to complete the professional traineeship (fully or partially) before qualifying for registration. 
If you are an architect who is trained and qualified for the profession of architect in one EU country, you qualify for automatic recognition. In case of automatic recognition you don't have to do the professional traineeship in the Netherlands.
Procedure

Your request for registration will not be processed until we have received the requested documents for registration by regular post. If your degree entitles you to registration in the Architects’ Register, we will send you an invoice for the registration fee and the annual contribution fee. After receipt of payment, the registration procedure will start, taking 3 to 4 weeks. In order to confirm your registration, the Architects Registration Bureau will send you an email with further information about your certificate of registration and your personal account.
