I know that very little is still known about guilds and schools. There is a small section in the Technology and Research dev journal and there's only a brief description on the wiki. The dev journal talks about using an organization's equipment, so obviously guilds and schools will have physical locations.
What I'm wondering is if they will be limited to a single physical location. I've heard people talk about opening "branches" of a guild in other cities. Will something like that be possible, or will a guild/school be limited to a single location? And is it known yet how a building will be designated as a guild or school as opposed to my own personal research space?
You can have branches within the same kingdom. If it's in another kingdom, it will be a different guild/organization.

Can a guild be a school? In actual medieval days guilds trained apprentices and had there own kind of schools. Will guilds in Elyria be able to operate some kind of school? How will guilds be able to train someone and, what is it that only a school could do?
Guilds and schools are similar, but different. In CoE, if a guild researches something, the guild gets a patent for 3 real life weeks. And only members of the guild will be legally able to make use of the research (to the benefit of the guild).
After 3 weeks they may extend it for another 3 weeks (at a price), after that it becomes public knowledge.
Schools however immediately share their research to the world.
