About Marbella Design Academy

MARBELLA DESIGN ACADEMY STUDENTS AWARDED                                                                                          


Living in this glorious climate has many advantages; one that shines above all others is the Marbella Design Academy, nurturing future generations of interior architects, graphic designers and fashion designers.

The Academy is an international, exclusive design school, originally founded in downtown Marbella in 1995, which later relocated in 2008 to a specifically-designed facility nearby in Monda and became state recognised in 2009 by the Ministry of Education in Spain.

Over almost 22 years the team at the Marbella Design Academy have worked very hard to create an unsurpassed scholastic environment. They provide a very personal individual tuition that is delivered to such a high academic level that the programmes have been validated and approved by their UK partner University in London who themselves award the graduated students directly with BA (Hons) degrees upon successful completion of their respective courses.

There is no other academic institution of its kind in Spain that can guarantee a university BA (Hons) degree, awarded by a UK University in London. The partnership agreement between Marbella Design Academy and the University was signed in 2014.

Prior to this highly coveted academic endorsement, the Academy won the Costa del Sol Business Award as ‘The Best Integrated Company in Andalucía’ in 2009 and has been ranked 25 out of 100 of the top design schools worldwide. Students throughout the world apply each and every year in their droves for one of 230 placements.

From conception, they instantly recognized the need to cultivate great talent and therefore remain small and exclusive. Students enjoy the privilege of one-to-one tutoring, in idyllic surroundings with relatively small overheads. It is also significantly cheaper than universities in the UK and the school will even assist with visa applications and scholarships.

The Academy ensures that their graduates acquire all the necessary resources that allow them to excel as professionals in the ever-evolving design industries, offering a superior standard of education, plus extensive proficiency and expertise in the latest computer programmes that are currently in demand in today’s market.

Competitive tuition fees, combined with the unbeatable location, weather and lifestyle offered by Spain’s ‘sunny coast’ – the students don’t just study hard, they really do enjoy an equally rewarding social life.

If that isn’t enough, the students complete their three years education not with just their cherished degrees, but over ninety percent also leave with employment already lined up, some securing work before even graduating.
