3 Foreword The future of the architectural profession is dependant on ensuring that the very best talent can be drawn from the widest possible pool. However, the combination of changes in the student fee regime and difficult economic times means that there is now a real danger of the profession becoming inaccessible to all but the wealthiest students. One of the greatest hurdles for aspiring architects is the issue of sustaining a living over the seven years of study and training. Whereas a trainee doctor or solicitor is effectively guaranteed a living wage while they complete post-graduate work experience, students of architecture lack such security. Unpaid or poorly paid work placements may deter students from lower-income backgrounds, who may be unable to support themselves or unwilling to incur significant debt. It was in recognition of this that, in June 2011, the RIBA introduced minimum wage requirements as a criterion for RIBA Chartered Practice accreditation. While many architectural practices are under ever-increasing financial pressure, and are being forced to drive down costs across the board, underpaying means that students, and the future of the profession, suffer. This survey aims to establish a baseline understanding of the remuneration of students for their contribution to the profession during their training. It is only with a clear picture of student earnings as they stand that the architectural profession can begin to seek parity with the other professions and continue to attract the brightest talent regardless of economic background.

4 Foreword Background to this report In March 2011, the RIBA conducted an initial survey of architecture students in order to gain an understanding of their financial situation. The results of the survey were striking, with 39 per cent of respondents reporting that they worked in paid employment for 15 hours a week or more during term time, despite the fact that more often than not this impacted on the quality of their academic work. The main reasons cited for working during term time were insufficient income and the expense of the course. With financial pressures encouraging many students to work part-time, on top of completing at least two years full-time professional experience before qualifying, students of architecture contribute significantly to the profession even before they have achieved Part 3. In response to recommendations from the RIBA s Pay and Conditions working group, which was established by Ruth Reed in November 2011 to address significant concerns over pay and conditions for architecture students undertaking fee-earning work, the RIBA s Chartered Practice criteria were amended in June 2011 to require that students undertaking work that is eligible to count towards their PEDR are paid at least the statutory minimum wage. However, this requirement does not apply to the many unchartered practices that employ student architects, and is itself merely a minimum standard. The detailed survey covered by this report was undertaken in November 2011 with the aim of providing a clear picture of student earnings. The survey findings will inform future reviews of the RIBA s Chartered Practice requirements in relation to remuneration of students, as well as informing future employment guidance that the RIBA may develop.

5 Executive summary 1 When minimum wage hourly rate is grossed-up by the average number of hours worked by survey respondents (37.5, see Table 18) and allowing for the average number of holidays received by survey respondents (20.0, see Table 22) plus public holidays. 2 When living wage hourly rate is grossed-up by the average number of hours worked by survey respondents (37.5, see Table 18) and allowing for the average number of holidays received by survey respondents (20.0, see Table 22) plus public holidays. 3 Hirsch, D. and Moore, R., The Living Wage in the United Kingdom. [online] Citizens UK. Available at: uploads/2011/06/the-living-wage-in-the-united- Kingdom-May-2011.pdf [Accessed 28 May 2012]. 4 RIBA, Duties and Responsibilities of the Employer. [online] Available at: textpage.asp?menu=4&sortorder=20&area=main [Accessed 28 May 2012]. The aim of the survey is to identify average remuneration levels amongst architecture students. To achieve this, the survey asked architecture students to provide earnings data for their current or most recent work placement. A total of 906 students responded to the survey from November 2011 to January The results of the survey confirm anecdotal evidence that architecture students contribute significantly to the profession even before they qualify: the overwhelming majority of work placements (93 per cent) were in architecture. Despite the increasing use of short-term internships in many professional fields, it was good news to find a prevalence of long-term work placements for architecture students; nearly half of placements lasted 10 months or more and a further quarter were unlimited in duration. However, the proportion of students receiving a salary for their work is cause for concern with a significant minority (11 per cent) receiving no pay, although half of this group were able to claim some expenses. The types of work placements that were unpaid were certainly not restricted to short-term or voluntary experience placements. Taking only those respondents currently working in order to meet their professional experience requirements (to whom RIBA Chartered Practices are required to pay at least the national minimum wage) as many as 9 per cent were not receiving any pay for their work, and a further 6 per cent received below the minimum wage. 1 Among those who were paid in their current or most recent work placement, the average (median) level of remuneration might at first seem to indicate a generally acceptable level of pay. For example: nationwide, pre-part 2 students were paid an average of 17,250, i.e. above the RIBA s recommended minimum pay of 16,692. However, the spread of responses reveal that a large proportion of pre-part 2 students received less than this. With a lower quartile of 14,000, a quarter of pre-part 2 students who were paid in their current or most recent placement actually earned less than the national living wage. 2,3 Factors that impacted on levels of pay included age and location; older students, and students based in London and the South East generally received higher pay than their counterparts. The survey also revealed that student employees are unlikely to be supported to undertake professional experience through means other than salary. Respondents were unlikely to receive any sort of fringe benefit, such as a fuel allowance or access to a pension scheme. In spite of the recommendations for paid study leave included in the RIBA PEDR guidance for employers, 4 almost half of all students received no paid time off for study or professional development.

6 Executive summary 5 When minimum wage hourly rate is grossed-up by the average number of hours worked by survey respondents (37.5, see Table 18) and allowing for the average number of holidays received by survey respondents (20.0, see Table 22) plus public holidays. Key findings: 77 per cent of architecture students were working, either part time, full time or as PEDR professional experience. When asked about their current or most recent work placement, 93 per cent of architecture students had found work in architecture, and a further 6 per cent had found work in the wider construction sector. 85 per cent of all work placements were in private architectural practices. 11 per cent of students were not paid a salary in their current or most recent work placement 14 per cent of students who were yet to attain their Part 2 qualification and 7 per cent of students who had attained Part 2 were unpaid. For students undertaking professional experience towards PEDR requirements (both pre- and post-part 2) the proportion of unpaid students was 9 per cent. A further 6 per cent were paid but received below the national minimum wage. 5 Average pay for architecture students in work placements was 17,250 at pre-part 2 and 23,500 at post-part 2. Average male earnings were 3 per cent higher than female earnings at pre-part 2 and 4 per cent higher at post-part 2. Note, however, that confidence intervals for the survey are ± 3 per cent at the 95 per cent confidence level. 8 per cent of students received a mileage allowance, 7 per cent received access to a non-contributory pension and 5 per cent received private medical insurance. No other type of benefit was received by more than 3 per cent of respondents. Many students (55 per cent of pre-part 2 and 33 per cent of post-part 2 students) did not receive any paid time off for professional development or study. For those who did, the average was five days per year at pre- Part 2 and nine days per year at post-part 2. Study of the earnings of architectural students Page 6

7 1 Survey methodology and response Nearly 8,000 students were ed a link to the questionnaire in mid- November A total of 906 responses was received by the time of the survey s close in mid-january Targets were current or recently lapsed Student Members of the RIBA. A link to the questionnaire also appeared in an RIBA Newsletter sent by to students. This portion of the response was self-selected by respondents themselves. No obvious skew to the data has arisen from the self-selected response. Almost three quarters (73 per cent) of the response came from s sent directly to Student Members; the remainder came from the link in the RIBA Newsletter. Confidence intervals for the survey are ± 3 per cent at the 95 per cent confidence level.

8 2 Respondent profile Age Eighty seven per cent of respondents were aged under 30. Half of the remainder were aged between 30 and 34. The average (median) age of pre-part 2 respondents was 23 years while the median of post-part 2 respondents was 26 years.

10 2 Respondent profile Level of qualification A little over half of the response, 55 per cent, were pre-part 2. The remaining 45 per cent were post-part 2. Six per cent of respondents had achieved Part 3 (all of whom passed their Part 3 examination during 2011). The table below shows when students had passed, or expected to pass, their Part 1, 2 or 3 examinations. Only very small numbers did not plan to take Part 2 or Part 3 examinations.

11 2 Respondent profile Ethnic origin The ethnic origin of respondents was virtually identical at pre-part 2 and post-part 2. In both cases, 82 per cent of respondents were white. Asian or Asian British was the largest non-white ethnic group, accounting for 6 per cent of respondents.

12 3 How students are currently occupied Most respondents were in work or education. Almost a third of respondents (31 per cent) at pre-part 2 were undertaking their practical experience. Forty per cent of pre-part 2 students were in full-time education, one fifth of whom also had a full- or part-time job. Six per cent were in part-time education along with full- or part-time employment. The remainder were in full-time employment (17 per cent) or part-time employment (2 per cent) or both (4 per cent). At post-part 2, rather more (41 per cent) were undertaking their practical experience than pre-part 2 respondents. Also higher was the proportion who were working full time (30 per cent). Compared with pre-part 2, fewer students were in full- or part-time education.

13 4 Architecture students work placements This section refers to respondents current, or most recent work placement. Two thirds (69 per cent) of respondents provided data for their current work placement, the remainder (31 per cent) for their most recent work placement. Most data (provided by 93 per cent of respondents) relates to a work placement in architecture. Within architecture, most work placements were in private practice.

14 4 Architecture students work placements One quarter (24 per cent) of respondents stated that their current or most recent work placement was unlimited in length. Another quarter (exactly 25 per cent) were engaged in a work placement lasting for more than a year. Twenty two per cent were in a placement lasting for between 10 and 12 months. Only 27 per cent of respondents current or most recent work placement was for a duration of less than 10 months. Post-Part 2 current or most recent work placements appear to last longer than those for pre-part 2 students, with 40 per cent of post-part 2 placements being described as unlimited in length.

15 5 Whether architecture students receive pay The majority of architecture students were being paid for their current or most recent work placement. A significant minority, however, received no remuneration or received expenses only. Eighty six per cent of pre-part 2 students, and 93 per cent of post-part 2 students, were in receipt of pay for their work placement. Another 7 per cent of pre-part 2 students and 2 per cent of post-part 2 students received expenses only.

16 5 Whether architecture students receive pay When considering only those students who reported that their current work placement formed part of their PEDR-recorded professional experience (35% of respondents), the proportion of students who were unpaid remained at a similar level. Table 9.1 Receipt of pay or expenses at current work placement (PEDR recorded professional experience) pay method for current or most recent placement (PEDR recorded) (%) pre-part 2 post-part 2 all salary paid expenses only no salary or expenses total response As Figure 9 shows, the receipt of pay varied by age, peaking at ages 23, 24 and 26 for pre-part 2 students and at ages 25, 26 and 27 for post-part 2 students.

17 6 Pay received 6 When minimum wage hourly rate is grossed-up by the average number of hours worked by survey respondents (37.5, see Table 18) and allowing for the average number of holidays received by survey respondents (20.0, see Table 22) plus public holidays. Respondents provided pay data for their current or most recent work placement. Pay was quoted either as a salary (annual equivalent) or as an hourly rate. In the tables below we have combined the data, grossing-up the hourly rate by the average number of hours worked by survey respondents (37.5, see Table 18) and allowing for the average number of holidays received by survey respondents (20.0, see Table 22) plus public holidays. On average, architecture students received pay equivalent to an annual salary of 17,250 for work placements pre-part 2 and 23,500 for work placements at post-part 2. The pay figures refer only to the 86 per cent of pre-part 2 students, and 93 per cent of post-part 2 students who were being paid for their work placement.

All data relates to average pay for those who received payment whether in the form of a salary or at an hourly rate. The tables show the proportion of respondents who received payment. Pay by gender Average pay for male architects is higher at both pre-part 2 and post-part 2. The difference is 3 per cent ( 500) at pre-part 2 rising to 4 per cent ( 1,000) at post-part 2. Confidence intervals for the survey are around ± 3 per cent at the 95 per cent confidence level, so it would be difficult to assert that these results are significant. However, they can be read in the context of other surveys, such as the survey by The Architects Journal in January 2012, which suggest that women s earnings in architecture are lower than men s and that women are also discriminated against in terms of career progression. 7 Similar differences in pay across the genders can be seen in other countries. 8, 9 Figure 10 Average pay by gender 25,000 20,000 pre-part 2 post-part 2 15,000 10,000 5,000 0 male female Table 11 Average pay received at current or most recent work placement analysed by gender Pre-Part 2 average pay (annual equivalent, s) % lower quartile median upper quartile receiving pay male 14,000 17,500 20, female 13,500 17,000 19, Post-Part 2 average pay (annual equivalent, s) % lower quartile median upper quartile receiving pay male 20,000 24,000 26, female 19,000 23,000 25, Study of the earnings of architectural students Page 18

19 6 Pay received Pay by age In general, average pay rises with age. At pre-part 2, the average pay increased from 16,000 at age 22 to 18,975 at age 25. Pay peaked at age 26, but then fell back for older pre-part 2 students. At post-part 2 there was less difference between the individual age groups. Average pay was around 23,000 at ages 24, 25 and 26 and rose slightly to 24,000 or more at ages 27 and above. The proportion who received pay follows a similar pattern to those at pre-part 2, rising with age to a peak at age 26 and then falling. The lowest proportions of students receiving pay at pre-part 2 were those aged 27 and over. At post-part 2, the lowest proportion of students receiving pay was at the youngest age groups, 24 and under.

21 6 Pay received Pay by field of employment Because private practice dominates work placements accounting for 85 per cent of placements it is difficult to make firm comparisons with other employment fields due to small sample sizes. So pay data in all other fields of employment must be considered with caution, in particular those marked with an asterisk in the tables below. With that health warning in mind, pre-part 2 students reported the highest average pay in work placements for design consultancies and multidisciplinary practices. At post-part 2, placements with private in-house employers recorded the highest average pay.

24 7 Personal expenses received Seven per cent of respondents at pre-part 2 and 2 per cent of respondents at post-part 2 stated that in their current or most recent work placement they did not receive a salary but were paid personal expenses. These may cover travel, lunch or some other expense. Examples of other expenses include contributions to university course fees, air flights or accommodation.

Note that the number of respondents at post-part 2 is very small so should be considered with caution. Due to the small sample size it is not possible to analyse personal expenses by field of employment.

25 8 Benefits, working hours and holidays Benefits received Fewer than 10 per cent of respondents and in most cases considerably fewer received each of the various fringe benefits. Top of the list comes a pension, either contributory (7 per cent) or non-contributory (2 per cent). More post-part 2 respondents (11 per cent) received a pension benefit than pre-part 2 students (7 per cent). Eight per cent of respondents overall received a mileage allowance benefit. Five per cent of respondents received private medical insurance, no more than 3 per cent received any other benefit. Table 17 Receipt of benefits at current or most recent work placement benefit (%) pre-part 2 post-part 2 ALL RIBA subscription contributory pension non-contributory pension company car mileage allowance car fuel benefit life assurance private medical insurance Hours worked The average working week was reported as being 37.5 hours, this is the same at both pre-part 2 and post-part 2. There is virtually no difference between the lower quartile and median values. Table 18 Average number of hours worked at current or most recent work placement number of hours worked per week lower quartile median upper quartile pre-part post-part Respondents stated they worked, on average, five hours overtime in addition to their working week. Less than 10 per cent were paid for this overtime, although about 12 per cent received time off in lieu. Study of the earnings of architectural students Page 25
