Our tutors are all practicing designers and seasoned professionals in the fields and subjects they teach. They are all connected to the local industry, allowing students to be alerted to real-world developments both in and outside the Academy. Our staff are all highly qualified to teaching cutting-edge techniques with a flair for practical application in the professional market, as well as comprehensive knowledge of contemporary theory to impart understanding to the highest specifications.
With almost 100% professional placement on graduation (and often before) the Academy has become a unique and ultra-desirable place of study for the most creative of perspective students.
Through the development of high-quality projects during their academic terms, as well as real-world projects that are offered to advanced students, students are able to collate their own comprehensive and professional portfolio even whilst completing their studies.
As our 3-year programmes in design start twice per year in September and January, each year the Marbella Design Academy holds two Student Expo & Graduation celebrations, showcasing student exhibitions and catwalk fashion shows.
The standard of work usually proves to be of such a high standard that it often results in students being head hunted by local and international design companies quite literally on the night.
