Summer School

London

Monday 1 – Friday 19 July 2019

The AA Summer School 2019 presents a programme of design studios, field study, seminars and lectures that emphasise the importance of both practice and theory in contemporary architecture. Based on the AA’s unit system, it offers participants a selection of varying design approaches, agendas and techniques, and represents a uniquely intensive and intimate environment that aims to expand formal and intellectual resources.

Tutors, lecturers and critics include past and present AA unit masters as well as professionals pooled from disciplines as diverse as fashion, art, graphics, industrial design, urbanism and film. The course is for current and prospective architectural students from around the world. It offers an exciting approach to architectural design for motivated students interested in exploring architecture as an extended field of research.

Fees

The AA Visiting School requires a fee of £2000 per participant, which includes a £60 Visiting membership fee and a deposit of £350 which is deducted from the total fee. The deposit will reserve your place, but the full fee is required to participate. Full fees need to be paid by 21 June 2019. 

This fee also includes lunch Mon-Fri in the AA Restaurant.
If you are already a member, the total fee will be reduced automatically by £60 by the online payment system. Fees do not include flights or accommodation, but accommodation options can be advised. Students need to bring their own laptops, digital equipment and model making tools. Please ensure this equipment is covered by your own insurance as the AA takes no responsibility for items lost or stolen at the workshop.

Visas
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.

Insurance
All participants are reponsible for their own insurance including travel and health insurance. All participants also need to ensure that any equipment and valuable items such as laptops are covered by their own insurance as the AA takes no responsibility for items lost or stolen.

For students from the European Union
If you are a student from another country in the European Union, here for less than six months, you will require a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC, previously called E111) which must be obtained from your home country. 
The card is not an alternative to travel insurance. It will not cover any private medical healthcare or costs, such as mountain rescue in ski resorts, being flown back to your home country, or lost or stolen property. Therefore it is important to have both an EHIC and a valid private travel insurance policy. Some insurers now insist that you hold an EHIC, and many will waive the excess if you have one.

For students from non-European Union countries, ie international students
If you are here for less than six months, please note you are not covered for National Health Service treatment in the UK.  You are therefore required to obtain travel/health insurance from your own country.
