- Applications can be sent in only 1-3 months in advance(not any earlier), with detailed bio data & SMALL SIZE soft copy over email.
- We only use computer aided drafting, no manual drafting on drawing boards, so knowledge of Autocad, any 3-D program (or any other drawing programs) is mandatory.

- Students living in the vicinity of Auroville (eg: in the state of Tamil Nadu, or Bangalore etc.) have to come for a personal interview with detailed bio-data and portfolio. Auroville is not a conventional city and therefore the trip might help the trainee to judge for him/herself if the AV lifestyle suits them.
- Distances in Auroville are not really walkable and being able to ride a motorbike or bicycle will be helpful.
If you have your own 2-wheeler, it is encouraged that you bring it along.The office will provide petrol expenses.
- Students with laptops are encouraged to bring them along so as not burden the office workstations.
- In terms of remuneration, we contribute towards lunch at any of the Auroville lunch points & petrol expenses. We provide no stipend. We provide a list of accommodation facilities in and around the office (in the range from Rs.1500/-to 4000/-).
- Dedication, commitment towards office work, full presence in the office is expected from the students. Students are encouraged to participate in the various activities in Auroville but not at the cost of office work.
- Once confirmed the student is expected to inform if she/he cannot come for any reason. Failing to do so will result in reporting to the HOD of the respective school or department. Swapping offices within Auroville without informing will also result in dismissal from the concerned office too.
