The VII Academy offers a wide variety of dynamic and intensive educational experiences in different regions with a diverse group of tutors. These are offered completely free to selected applicants, all of whom come from the majority world and underrepresented communities in G20 countries.
As part of our core programming, we offer two levels of Seminars that are based on the same curriculum, although taught by different tutors. All students entering the VII Academy must complete a Level 1 Seminar, which is region, language, and timezone-specific, in order to progress to Level 2.
Level 2 Seminars for Africa and Asia Pacific will launch in January 2021.
Due to COVID-19, the VII Academy is taking all its courses online for the foreseeable future. We will resume residential courses at our Sarajevo and Arles campuses and other select locations when WHO guidelines indicate it is safe to do so, and those students who have passed our Level 1 and 2 Seminars will be the first to attend.
