I have obtained a Dutch degree before 2015

A transitional regime is in place for individuals who have achieved a (Master’s) degree from a recognized Dutch educational institute before 1 January 2015. They qualify for registration on the sole basis of their degree.



Your request for registration will not be processed until we have received a certified copy of your diploma 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.


The registration fee amounts € 80. The annual membership fee is € 65. In case of registration in the course of the year, the membership fee will be calculated proportionately.

For those who graduated after 1 January 2015 it is mandatory to gain professional practice experience before qualifying for registration in the architects register.
