Programme start twice per year. In the middle of January and in the middle of September each year.

The Academy is an exclusive design School with a family-like atmosphere prevailing among the staff and the students, who come from many different countries. As such, the students receive a great deal of personal and direct attention from the academic staff.

A creative process

Graphic Design is a creative process that combines art and technology to communicate ideas. A graphic designer works with a variety of communication tools in order to convey a powerful message to a particular audience. They create everything from book covers, logos and packaging to advertising campaigns, websites and help build entire corporate images. A clever design can even dramatically improve a company´s sales figures.

The field of graphic design is as varied as the employment opportunities available for our graduates. The tuition offered to students at Marbella Design Academy has been conceived to combine high academic standards with a thorough immersion into contemporary techniques that have placed the Academy alongside the best design schools.

Students have the opportunity of learning the art and craft of hand silkscreen printing in the purpose built workshop at the Academy. They will learn methods of creating stencils to produce posters and logos on paper.

Once awarded their BA (Hons) degree they can then apply if they so wish for a Master’s degree at Middlesex (1 additional academic year) or at any other chosen university.
