Abstract: The architectural profession incorporates the contexts of many disciplines by enabling many professions to work together. Therefore, candidates who will perform the architectural profession need to improve themselves in working along with these disciplines. Professional practice studies ensure that the theoretical lessons learned are combined with practice. They are internship practices that appear in the architectural education curriculum and professional practice experiences attended by candidates who have completed their academic education. In this study, it is aimed to comprehend the place and importance of professional practice studies in the architectural education process. Besides the 27 member countries of the European Union Turkey was also investigated, where the article has been prepared. The method of the study is the descriptive comparison method based on literature review. According to the obtained data, although architectural education of the countries that were analyzed have not shown great diversities, it is seen that architectural education in many countries have a period five-years, while this process in Turkey is four-years.
