How to apply

The deadline for applications is 15 May 2018. However, we do suggest applying early as places for the workshop are limited and may fill up before this date.

You can make an application by completing the online application found under ‘Links and Downloads’ on the AA Visiting School page. If you are not able to make an online application, email romanillos.arroyo@aaschool.ac.uk for instructions. Once you complete the online application and make a full payment, you are registered to the programme. A CV or a portfolio is not required.

All participants travelling from abroad are responsible for securing any visa required, and are advised to contact their home embassy early. After payment of fees, the AA School can provide a letter confirming participation in the workshop.


Fees

The AA Visiting School fee is £695 per participant.  It will include a £60 Visiting membership fee, tuition,  local transportation and accommodation for the stay in Antigua Guatemala and the night before the starting day in Ciudad de Guatemala in the case of non local students. In summary, it includes accommodation for seven nights (1-7 July), but it does not include the nights from 8-11 July. Booking is recommended for these last nights, although last year some non local students were hosted by local students, so we recommend to leave open the possibility to cancel the reservations. Flights are not included. Students need to bring their own laptops and digital equipment. Please ensure this equipment is covered by your own insurance as the AA takes no responsibility for items lost or stolen at the workshop. 

The students will be awarded two academic certificates, one from the Architectural Association School of Architecture of London and another one from the Francisco Marroquín University.


Eligibility

The workshop is open to current architecture, engineering, environmental sciences, geography, design or media graduate or undergraduate students, PhD candidates and young professionals.
