Not everybody has the possibility ‘to tear out an entire year of the calendar and fly off to Spain’. We understand that. Therefore, we offer the possibility of shorter stays on the International Workshop. This option is a more affordable, yet intense and a concentrated way of savouring the course. Overseas students on short stays do not need to apply for a student visa, and can use a 3 month tourist visa.
Students, who embark on a short term stay integrate entirely with the student-group on the International Workshop and can participate in all scheduled classes and activities. At the beginning of the short term stay the student will be assigned a personal tutor, who will monitor the work of the student once a week throughout the stay.
Classes and scheduled activities
There are two types of classes on the International Workshop: Basic-Tuition classes and Area-electives. The first are classes addressed to all students on the course. The latter are classes in tools and techniques.
Some of these classes are Route-specific and therefore obligatory to the students on some routes. Credits are calculated according to ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System), where 1 ECTS credit equals (lective hours + homework)/25. As in all universities and schools for further education in Europe, a full time academic year counts 60 ECTS. This includes all education activities, studio-work, exhibiting and preparing final dissertation / book. For overseas students, we are happy to “translate” the ECTS system on student-transcripts into American credits.
