Uganda ARB benchmarking visit to the SACAP

The Uganda ARC and the SACAP engagement on 09 March 2023 presented an opportunity for both statutory regulators to collaborate and share best practices.

The heads of architectural schools across South Africa formed part of this important engagement. In addition, the Uganda ARC delegates visited the University of Johannesburg(UJ) and the University of the Witwatersrand architectural schools.

We anticipate that this engagement will culminate in a Mutual Recognition Agreement to exchange 

information, promote the adoption of best practices on standards of architectural education and professional practice.
Other areas of collaboration that are being explored includes: exchange architectural student program, schools of architecture reciprocal guest lecture exchanges and reciprocal external examiners exchanges.

The student exchange program will provide an opportunity for architecture students in South Africa and Uganda to learn from each other and gain exposure. The same applies to exhanges on lectures and external exeminars. We firmly belive that this will contribute to building a strong and diverse architectural profession in Africa.

The Uganda ARB Vice Chairperson, Arch Miriam Lawino, expressed gratitude and stated that: “ Uganda ARB appreciate SACAP’s commitment in building strong relationships with other African countries. The collaboration creates an avenue for learning from each other and sharing of ideas. This will improve the quality of the built environment in Uganda,” she said.

SACAP President, Arch Charles Nduku, indicated that “SACAP is pleased with the engagement and the opportunity to host the Uganda ARB in South Africa. The engagment will enhance cooperation and promote best practice on architectural education and professional practice.” he said.


The South African Council for the Architectural Profession (SACAP) is legally charged to regulate the architectural profession in South Africa by the Architectural Profession Act 2000, Act 44 of 2000. The architectural profession includes professional architects, senior architectural technologists, architectural technologists, draughtspersons, specified categories and candidates in each of the categories of registration, all of whom are required to be registered with SACAP before they can practice architecture.
