Introducing a thorough screening process to select the students with the desired approach for a career in design, ARCH launched the AIEED Exam in 2010. In the assessing process, ARCH tries to know the students’ perceptions, attitude and approach towards the world to identify the potential talent who can compose future courses in the design field. The ‘Screening Process for Design Studies’ and its parts and stages aim to enable the students to do a self-discovery and in the process, help ARCH to identify the right aspirants rather than just evaluating the skills they possess.

ARCH in strategic partnership with Pearson is also accredited to deliver six BTEC Level 5 HND qualifications in Art and Design.
