Every student graduating in landscape architecture after 31 December 2014 who wants to register as a garden and landscape architect in the Netherlands must complete a period of professional experience. This professional experience period lasts for two years and prepares graduates for the proper exercise of their profession. During this period, graduates obtain experience in professional practice under the supervision of qualified and experienced designers (mentors). After two years they can register with the Architects Registry Office.

More information about the professional experience period can be found on the website of the Architects Register and on the Professional Experience website (website in Dutch only).
