What Our Students Say


“Marbella Design Academy, a place that will always have a piece of my heart.
Since day one, the welcoming and heartwarming atmosphere has been like no other university. I had the pleasure of exploring my passion and studying Interior Architecture and design at Marbella Design Academy, and those three years were filled with so much growth, creativity, and hard work.
The curriculum was a good balance between theoretical and practical knowledge, allowing us to explore our creativity with a strong knowledge base. One of the things that worried most of us was the softwares, but with practice and the help of professors, the results were incredible. No matter what level you have, you will be fine because you will learn everything.
From the briefs to design competitions, to industry visits, to guest lectures, all these elements were provided for us to challenge our limits and helped us thrive for better and work towards excellence.
I am not only grateful for the knowledge I have collected but also for the beautiful friendships and connections I have made that helped me shape my personality and become a better version of myself, as a person first and then as an interior designer. The professors I’ve had were some of the best educators I have had, especially during my last year, where it was the most challenging. They were not just professors to me, they were mentors and they dedicated so much time to each one of us to help us achieve the best results. This is something no other university will offer.
I am writing these lines with a heart full of gratitude and appreciation and beautiful memories. Thank you Marbella Design Academy for the unforgettable journey that I will forever cherish.
Yasmine Hussein – Luxembourg
BA (Hons) in Interior Architecture & Design
Over the past three years at Marbella Design Academy, I’ve had an amazing journey exploring the world of interior architecture. The program exceeded my expectations, providing a solid understanding of the field.
I want to express my sincere thanks to my teachers who played a pivotal role in my academic growth. Their guidance and expertise have been invaluable, creating an environment that takes care of our learning and passion for design.
Marbella Design Academy has been a motivation for my development, and I’m grateful for the foundation it has laid for my future in interior architecture.
Laura Hernandez Jimeno – Spain
BA (Hons) in Interior Architecture & Design
I really enjoyed my 3 years studying in Marbella Design Academy.
When I joined the course, I didn’t know how to sew, make patterns from scratch and wasn’t expecting that the real fashion industry is so big and fun.
The teachers were very helpful and nice and became my second family. The Academy gave me a lot of knowledge in the fashion industry
I’m really thankful to the teachers and all the staff of Marbella Design Academy for these amazing 3 years!
Daniela Konte – Spain/Russia
BA (Hons) in Fashion Design & Development
I really liked the Graphic Design programme. The briefs are not strict, and you can really do what you want do, and orient them to what you want to do in the future. I like illustration and I could include it in all my projects somehow, and practice on that. It was really nice to have the freedom to do so. My fear, when I entered the school was that I didn´t know any software, but we learnt After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator, Glyphs for typeface… so many that I didn´t think I could learn [them all] in such a short time. I am super grateful for that. You don´t need to have any previous knowledge about them before you come here.
Vilma Olsson – Sweden
BA (Hons) Graphic Design & Media.
I absolutely loved my time at the Marbella Design Academy!
My experience was so rounded, as was my growth. The academy and all staff helped me in so many ways, not just academically. Without this I don’t think I would have made it through the 3 years (plus foundation) especially during the pandemic and subsequent lockdown. To receive a degree, let alone a First Class honours degree, is something I never thought I was capable of, but with the support, direction, and encouragement of my tutors I have managed to change my career after 10 years in a different industry. I am so happy to finally work in the fashion industry and have the confidence to pursue my passion and enjoy what I do on a day-to-day basis rather than working to live. For this I could not be more grateful!
Danielle Morgan-Kent – Gibraltar
BA (Hons) in Fashion Design & Development
As a result of my involvement with this institution over the past three years, I have been able to embark on a journey of creativity, skill development, and personal growth that is unmatched.
They have helped me gain valuable insight into design principles and have also helped me push myself beyond my creative boundaries by providing me with valuable guidance and expertise.
There have been a number of opportunities for me to put my theoretical knowledge into practice. In order to clarify my design skills and prepare me for the dynamic field of graphic design, I feel that a strong emphasis on practical experience has been instrumental in honing my design skills.
Among Marbella Design Academy’s many distinguishing characteristics is its vibrant and diverse community of students from all over the world, who come from all walks of life.
Collaborating with peers from different cultures has enriched my perspective and fostered a collaborative spirit, mirroring the collaborative nature of the design industry itself. I am not only equipped with a robust skill set but also a deep appreciation for the power of design to impact and inspire.
This journey has not just been about earning a degree, it has been a transformative experience that has shaped me into a confident and versatile graphic designer ready to embark on a fulfilling career.
Enea Rossi – Italy
BA (Hons) Graphic Design & Media
Choosing Marbella Design Academy for my interior design education has proven to be a pivotal decision in shaping my professional and personal development. It has been a wonderful and exciting experience.
I was able to develop my creativity and think critically about design challenges. Through engaging coursework, hands-on projects, and exposure to diverse design perspectives, I have not only gained a solid foundation in interior design principles but have also developed the ability to approach design challenges with innovative and thoughtful solutions.
I am also grateful for the numerous opportunities provided by Marbella Design Academy to engage with the industry through workshops, exhibitions, and internships. These experiences have not only expanded my professional network but have also allowed me to apply classroom knowledge to real-world scenarios, solidifying my confidence and competence as an interior designer.
My time at Marbella Design Academy has been a transformative and enriching chapter in my educational journey. I leave with a deep appreciation for the academy’s commitment to excellence, the enduring friendships forged during my studies, and the skills and insights that will undoubtedly shape my future in the field of interior design.
I extend my heartfelt thanks to the entire Marbella Design Academy community for their unwavering support, guidance, and dedication to fostering a learning environment that goes beyond academics. I hope to carry the knowledge and experiences gained here into the next phase of my career.
Myles Etim – Nigeria
BA (Hons) in Interior Architecture & Design
I joined the Design Foundation Course because I didn´t know what to study. It was a really good tool for me to check what I wanted to do.
I ended up doing Fashion, as this is what I really wanted to do.
I would recommend the course, it has been an amazing experience, and I met so many good people.
Gabriel Carús – Spain/UAE
Design Foundation Course
I would definitely recommend the Design Foundation Course, especially for people who don´t know what they want to study yet, because it gives you a basic knowledge of all 3 courses. At the end of the course, you have an understanding of what you are going into.
JP was a great teacher during the course. He really helped when you needed help. Overall it was just good vibes.
Razan Esfahani – Bahrain
Design Foundation Course
I really loved my summer Design Foundation Course, and I found it really interesting.
It was quite beautiful and enjoyable being at the academy with this weather. It really did not feel like extra education.
At the start of my Design Foundation Course, I wasn´t sure if I was going to go to Fashion or Graphics.
I am now at the end of first year of Graphic Design and I have been absolutely loving it.
Sofya Koroleva – Russia
Design Foundation Course
“This year has been very good in all aspects. I have learned a lot and I have improved from the beginning until now. I am very grateful to my teachers because without them I would not have achieved these results. You can always improve, and here I am, looking forward to starting the next year to give my best and keep learning and growing“
Encarni Muños Cabello – Spain
BA (Hons) in Interior Architecture & Design – 2nd year.
I have learned so much over these 3 incredible years!
I felt that I had so much support from both my teachers and the school staff.
We were given the freedom to create and design whatever we wanted to at all times!
It has been amazing.
Roberta Peixoto – Spain/Brazil
BA (Hons) in Fashion Design & Development
When my son started with the Foundation Course I knew he was creative and his mind full of ideas and imagination.
I am overwhelmed by the way during the following 3 years of the BA (Hons) Interior Architecture programme he has been taught how to develop this creativity into the professional, organised way he is now able to communicate and present his ideas.
Rebecca Bright, mother of Oscar Bright
BA (Hons) in Interior Architecture and Design.
If I could just say “Thank You” it would be not enough compared to what I received from Marbella Design Academy. To have the chance to join, learn, have fun, and to be a part of Marbella Design Academy was amazing.
Thank you to all Teachers , friends and every single person from the teams which helped me to grow until today. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
Nan Khea – Thailand
BA (Hons) in Fashion Design & Development
My experience at Marbella Design Academy was eye-opening. The Graphic Design course was awesome in regards to the content we were learning and it allowed me to explore various avenues of graphic design and develop my skills through the different software we were introduced to. The educators are friendly and insightful and their approach to projects and presentations allowed me to overcome my fear of public speaking. The educators allowed me to express my style through each and every project while maintaining the correct rules and professionalism needed in the final results. I was able to meet people and make new friends from all over the world with different cultures and backgrounds which enhanced the experience. I am also grateful for the Spanish classes offered by the Academy.
Ayrton Dos Santos – South Africa
BA (Hons) Graphic Design & Media
One of the things I loved about the fashion design programme, is that we really get to understand the basics of fashion, whether it comes from sewing, or marketing, or the business side of fashion. We also learnt how to digitalise fashion. It prepares you fully for the fashion industry. From 2nd to 3rd year, we also create our own collections, and we also produce it. We did everything that had to be done, from concept making, designing the clothes, and then sewing them at school. In these past 3-years at Marbella Design Academy, I had a very enjoyable experience, especially meeting my helpful teachers, and making long lifetime friends.
Rana Ekwass from – LibYa
BA (Hons) in Fashion Design & Development
I have been to international schools, but never one as diverse as Marbella Design Academy, and I have made many friends from different cultures and backgrounds. One of the things I liked most at the academy is that the projects we were given had a wide range of choices, meaning we could customize them to however we wanted our career path to go down, and what type of style we wanted to practice. At the end of the course, we really had found out our own style and our own creative personality.
Nicoline Nør Mønsted – Spain/Denmark
BA (Hons) in Interior Architecture and Design
There’s a saying that all good things must come to an end. It’s a feeling I’m going through at this moment. I’ve spent the last three amazing years with friends from different backgrounds and cultures who treat me like family. From having late night study sessions to getting Bartolini’s pizza or kebabs every weekend, to having movie or game nights, going for a late night walk in the mountains, having long deep conversations about life, to even celebrating events like Christmas and New Years. It’s a journey I wish that didn’t end. Thank you everyone who has made these three years absolutely special for me. For guiding me and making me grow as a person.
Leeryan Daniel – Pakistan
BA (Hons) Graphic Design & Media
Being at Marbella Design Academy was a welcoming and fun experience. I met people from all over the world sharing the same passion.
Learning about graphic design was a challenge but one the teachers made enjoyable. They expressed their passion through teaching making me wanting to learn more.
Being at Marbella Design Academy helped me grow my skills and explore new opportunities.
Leah Augustus – USA/Germany
BA (Hons) Graphic Design & Media
Undoubtedly, I had one of the best university experiences in Marbella Design Academy. Studying in a friendly environment is always enjoyable. I have found a big family that I can be proud of. Having good friends from different countries was a gift that Marbella Design Academy gave me.
Best wishes for Marbella Design Academy
Houman Zendehdel – Spain/Iran
BA (Hons) in Interior Architecture and Design
My time at Marbella Design Academy was the toughest and best time of my life. The tutors there pushed me and believed in me when I didn’t and in the end I’m amazed at what I have accomplished. I learned to do things I never thought I would be able to do and made friends I’ll never forget.
Sigrún Hreiðarsdóttir – Iceland
BA (Hons) in Interior Architecture and Design
It was a pleasure for me to be part of the Design Foundation Course.
It was a wonderful class. I was able to discover many things and new software.
The Design Foundation Course taught me so much, especially how to be creative and have a designer mindset.
The course was challenging, and the teacher was always there supporting us and ready to help.
I enjoyed the course tremendously.
Benedicte Ndongo Kulengula – Republic of Congo
Online Design Foundation Course
My time at Marbella Design Academy was very rewarding.
During my years at the school I worked on several different projects that helped me evolve as a designer and interior architect. You will have all the resources you need to launch your professional career after graduation thanks to the supportive and knowledgeable professional educators as well as the welcoming atmosphere of the school. Overall a school I can definitively recommend and I’m happy I decided to move abroad – not only for the education itself – but also for the cultural aspects. By attending Marbella Design Academy it has prepared me for work in Spain of which the Academy has obtained and helped me to get.
Finally I’d like to express my sincere gratitude for all the help and encouragement I’ve received over the years.
Anna Udeland – Norway
BA (Hons) in Interior Architecture and Design
This course has taught me so much more than I could ever imagine. The teacher inspired me so much during this course, and I thought it was amazing to have his help throughout all projects.
Thanks for everything.
Mikaela Söderholm – Sweden

These 3 years at Marbella Design Academy have been full of experiences where I’ve learned so much and I’ve met wonderful people.
Marbella Design Academy is a special place that feels like home, it feels like we’re all a big family.

Ariana Serra – Spain
BA (Hons) in Fashion Design & Development
As of today, I’m officially graduating with a Bachelor Degree. I’ve set foot to 3 different continents. I can speak 3 different languages. I’ve made friends with so many different people from all over the world. I’ve learned and done some amazing stuff that I never knew I could do.
And I’m so proud of what I’ve managed to achieve.
Minh Tran – Vietnam
BA (Hons) Graphic Design & Media
I came to Marbella Design Academy not knowing how to sew, not knowing what a pattern was and had never opened a single Adobe program in my life.
After studying Fashion Design & Development for three years I have grown into the path of fashion design that I want to pursue because of my own willpower.
I am extremely proud of my classmates and I for getting to the finish line although this pandemic has made things challenging in many ways.
My fashion teachers and best friend supported me throughout this year both academically and emotionally and I now leave Spain as a young professional and with friends for life.
It’s amazing what you can achieve and do if you put your mind to it!
Daniella Ramirez – Sweden
BA (Hons) in Fashion Design & Development
My 2nd year in Marbella Design Academy has been a great experience. The teachers are professional, experienced and passionate in their field, and are always there to help, encourage and inspire you. The classes are relaxed yet productive, and are structured to meet individual student needs. The projects are diverse and interesting, making you see out for new innovations, technologies and methods, and most importantly – be innovative yourself. Everyone in the university is very friendly and helpful. Being there gives you a sense of security and contentment.
I am looking forward to all the new, exciting and educating experiences my final year is going to bring!

I had the best years and I am so grateful for everything!
Andrea Jansson – Sweden
BA (Hons) in Graphic Design & Media
I transferred this year to the second year at Marbella Design Academy.
During the year I have learnt many different things but among the most remarkable I have learnt are a professional approach to a project. I have learnt how to make all the technical drawings (electrical plan, sewerage plan, lighting plan… ) and graphically how to create a nice layout, how to work with Photoshop and Indesign applying it to our renders, floor plans, sections…. )
I have also been taught the importance of making a perfect research and incorporate the results into my design projects.
Adrian Redondo – Spain
BA (Hons) in Interior Architecture & Design – 2nd year
Today is my graduation day. I’ve waited so long for today, yet we could not have our usual big Graduation Party I had hoped for due to Covid19.  I have worked hard every day, and I’m extremely proud of myself and my fellow students. Thank you Marbella Design Academy for these wonderful 3 years. It’s been such an educating yet fun experience that I wouldn’t trade for anything! And a huge shout out to my wonderful teachers who know how to make education fun, interesting and above all, motivate you to become the best designer possible.
I’m looking forward to the future, full of hope and positivity. After my Graduation, I have gladly accepted a position  as Tutor Assistance at Marbella Design Academy

The time at Marbella Design Academy has been very rewarding in many ways.
Both the friendly atmosphere in the academy, as well as the support and knowledge given by the professional tutors give you all the necessary tools for starting your professional career upon graduation.
The programme is innovative in terms of teaching you about new technologies, sustainable architecture and providing you with knowledge of advanced modeling techniques and software skills.
I have enjoyed my time at Marbella Design Academy so much and the department of Interior has provided me with so much new knowledge for my future career!
I want to say a big thank you for all the help and support I’ve gotten this year! And thank you for always pushing me to become better!!
Kristine Heisholte – Norway
BA (Hons) in Interior Architecture & Design
’m so grateful for my time at Marbella Design Academy. Before starting my degree in fashion, I barely knew how to sew and didn’t know much else, but after my three years were over I feel I have the skills and tools needed to achieve my dreams. The staff really care about the students and it showed; with plenty of 1 on 1 time with the tutors, students are easily able to get the help they’d like as well as constantly get inspired by those around them. It was a great learning experience. Along with the academic experience, I truly feel the school is so diverse and it was amazing meeting people from all over the world. I’ve made friends I feel like I will have for life and it has been some of the best years of my life. Thank you to my teachers for giving me the necessary skills to reach my goals and thank you to Marbella Design Academy for encouraging me to pursue them!
Mariel Shoemaker – United States
BA (Hons) in Fashion Design & Development
I studied Graphic Design and went from having no knowledge at all on the subject to having my own freelance business today, which would not have been possible without the three years I spent at MDA! As well as the knowledge and skills that I gained during this time, I also met some wonderful people from all over the world and a very supportive team of teaching staff who motivated me to keep going when times were tough, believed in me and still keep in touch and show their interest in my journey despite graduating over a year ago.
If I could go back and do the three years all over again, I would!
Savannah Moorghen – United Kingdom
BA (Hons) in Graphic Design & Media
I had a wonderful experience at Marbella Design Academy. I learned so much and had the best time. I made wonderful friends and so enjoyed experiencing life in Monda. So special. The teachers were great and very helpful. If I could do it all again, I would! ???? I would not be where I am today without the graphic design course.
Bianca Germaux – Spain
BA (Hons) in Graphic Design & Media
From the beginning the experience was amazing for me.
Everyone I have been in contact was extremely helpful and kind. The Academic advisor was very instrumental in my success. The classes are structured to address individual student needs. The courses are focused on getting students ready for the job market.
The instructors are always available to answer questions, at any time. They kept me focused and rooted in my studies.
The program itself was very manageable with my already busy life.
I would say that you will get out of this program what you put in it.
It seems that they have made virtually impossible to fail if you put in the work. Best decision I have ever made!!
JY Min – South Korea
Bachelor of Arts in Interior Architecture
Three years of hard work at Marbella Design Academy payed off! – & I got a 1st Class BA Hons Degree. Professional and experienced teachers who passed on not only theoretical elements, but knowledge of the industry from the very inside of it. All tasks and assignments were created in a way that you learned and practiced to get only better and better within time restraints.
It took time and patience combined, but for me it was most important to be inspired and feel motivated- at Marbella Design Academy teachers and staff are always there to help and inspire you. Special thanks to our great tutors, our Department was like a big fashion family and that is so unusual compared to other Universities. I appreciated it so much! 
Kate Solomennikova – Russia
Bachelor of Arts in Fashion Design
To me, Fashion is not restricted to only clothing and beauty, but it is all encompassing in creativity and expression. Fashion can define you as a person.” My name is Lauriane L’Eplattenier and I just graduated with a First Class BA Hons Fashion Degree. At Marbella Design Academy I have learnt a lot about fashion, from the drawing classes to developing clothes collections to the actual sewing and finishing, but also all about Marketing, fashion show presentation and even jewellery making. Our Fashion teachers are great and they are always helping us to realize our wildest ideas and to help us to build our own „style“. I really like studying at this school because we have no creative restrictions and the opportunity to experiment and create exactly what we want.
Also, we get a chance to study with students from different nationalities and cultures, which allows us to have different approaches and ideas for our collections, but also inspire each other. Likewise, we are offered great opportunities to enter in the working world with design competitions and fashion shows. I personally have taken part in several real life fashion shows and competitions, Malaga Fashion Week, Runway Gibraltar New Designer Competition, Marbella Luxury Week-End, Marbella Crea & Starlite Festival and Frankfurt Style Award. I have now won two times at Malaga Fashion Week. In addition, it is a unique experience where I learn so much from taking part and participating amongst other creative talent and also get constructive feedback and advice from the professionals of this industry. It is also a great experience with creative exchanges of ideas and styles. Studying on a Masters Degree in Fashion Design has been a natural progression for me and an essential compliment to my successfully completed fashion design education at Marbella Design Academy and my awarded Bachelor of Arts. I am now studying for my Master at University in London.
Lauriane L´Eplattenier – Schwitzerland
Bachelor of Arts in Fashion Design
Hey, my name is Jessica, 20 years old and from Germany. I’m studying Interior Architecture, about to finish my First Year. For me, choosing Marbella Design Academy was definitely not hard. I fell in love with the Academy the first day I looked at their website and even went visiting it but the location, Spain was another good point for me.
Being part of Marbella Design Academy, is like having a family far away from home. The administration, the Professors and the students here at Marbella Design Academy are very friendly, they make you feel loved, and know exactly who you are and what type of personality you’ve got.
Marbella Design Academy is more than just a design school, it is your second home, you don’t even want to leave the place until late in the afternoon. They just make you gain so much experience. I live in Monda near the Academy. Imagine a small village with some people, but this is nothing compared to this village. People are friendly,
almost all the students live there. There are places in Monda, you just have to explore.
There are perfect walks to let loose and get inspire, for any course. I love it. After completing my studies, I hope to travel and experience more Interior & Architecture to gain more knowledge. I guess, time will tell.
Jessica – Germany
Interior Architecture student
I am a third year fashion design student. I chose Marbella Design Academy because I wanted a new experience abroad and studying seemed like a good idea.
I chose Marbella Design Academy because I wanted a new experience abroad and studying seemed like a good idea. The best thing about MDA is that it is an international collage, so you meet people around the world here.
My options are to stay here and accept the job that is given to me or what I would love to do it study further in South Africa.
Raïssa Faber – Netherlands
Bachelor of Arts in Fashion Design
I am an Interior architecture student, completing my first year at Marbella Design Academy. I chose Marbella Design Academy for many reasons, but most importantly, because I will soon graduate with an official United Kingdom BA Honors degree.
The best thing about being a student in Marbella Design Academy is that there are only a few students in each class, which enables you to have the freedom of asking as many questions you desire, as well as the chance of getting more one-on-one attentiveness from the teacher.
The best thing about living in Monda is that it is a quiet, relaxing village with lots of greenery. Also, all the students in the Academy live at walking distance from my house.
After completing my studies I’m going to work at my Grandfathers Architectural Company in Kuwait.
Farah – Lebanon
Interior Architecture student
Fashion design, started in January, so I’ve been here for 4 months. I have chosen Marbella Design Academy because I wanted to study abroad, and learn more about Spanish culture and language.
The best thing is that you have easy access to the teachers. That would be that almost everyone from school is living in Monda, so it’s easy to get to know people.
The options are many. I don’t really have a plan yet. Might start my own brand, after I’ve gotten some work experience.
Durita – Faroe Islands
Fashion Design student
I am a student studying the BA Hons Fashion programme at Marbella Design Academy.
I chose Marbella Design Academy after coming to see the school, which I’d found listed on the internet as one of Spain’s highly recommended design schools. On visiting the Academy I immediately felt a welcoming feeling which was only enhanced after meeting the extremely kind staff. I was given a tour around the academy by the head of fashion who was extremely passionate about the subject and the academy itself ,which made a large impact on me.
I was delighted to hear that at the academy the classes were rarely larger than 10, which gives each student a lot of personal time and help from the teachers, unlike many other universities. In my opinion the personal time where you can learn from the teachers knowledge & experiences in the industry are two of the most important things for ones education.
I also love that all the students and teachers are always willing to help one another and that everyone gets to know each other on a personal basis.
I currently live in Monda, which is useful for getting to school as its only a 10-15 minutes walk away no matter where you live and only a car or bus ride away from Marbella or Malaga.
After completing my course at the academy I hope to go on to doing a Masters before launching my own career.
Didi – Mata
Fashion design student
I am Diptee Thapa, Originally I am from Hong Kong. I am studying Graphics 3rd Year, will graduate in Dec 2015. Marbella Design Academy is an exclusive design school with international mix of students from all around the world. I am fond of Spanish culture and language and wanted to study graphics, hence it was my best choice.
Since the number of students in each class is small, there is great amount of one to one interaction between students and teachers therefore students can take more advantage.
Monda is a small village with minimum distractions. Personally i prefer tranquil area since i come from a busy big city like Hong Kong. I would like to continue to work as Graphic Designer here in Spain to get some experience while still make my Spanish language stronger after my graduation, however my options are open and will become clearer towards the end of year perhaps.
Diptee Thapa – Hong Kong

Fashion 2nd year September. Danish standard in a Spanish setting.
It’s nice and close in the morning, and Monda itself is pretty cheap to live in. I probably have to work a year to pay everything off and save up for my next step. Then I would like to take a Masters degree in Business-Fashion either in
New-York, Paris, London or Copenhagen.
Michelle – Denmark

I am June from Kenya. I am studying Fashion Design,1st Year.
I chose Marbella Design Academy because I believe I can get the knowledge I require to succeed in my future career.
The best thing about Being a Student at M.D.A is the experience and knowledge passed onto us from our teachers. The food at the cafetería is one of the best things as well.
After my 3 year course. My options are to get a job in the fashion industry, hopefully by then I will have made enough networks. Or undergo masters at university in London.

My name is Mona S. and from Stockholm – Sweden. I study in the second year – Interior Architecture at the Marbella Design School.
I chose to study at the Marbella Design Academy here in Spain because I wanted to study to Interior Architect at this Academy and also because I love the wonderful, pleasant weather which Southern Spain offers. Thought the combination was perfect.

Josefine W., 25 year from Stockholm – Sweden.
I started at the Marbella Design Academy in January 2015, BA Interior Architecture, and I already feel that I learned a lot in those 4 months.
Right now I build and design a hotel reception / lounge in the Maldives, with influences from Islamic architecture.
I like it already in Spain very much and I love the lifestyle, the sun, and making friends of diverse cultures from around the world. I think I will like to stay here longer than these 3 years, we’ll see.
Depending on how it goes with the job in the future. I myself want to work on major projects such as hotels, stadiums, shopping centers.
We’ll see where this leads, and the future, I look forward to!
Josefine W. – Sweden
Interior Architecture student
I am studying interior architecture and am in my first year of study.
My dream has always been to move to Spain and I have always been interested in interior design, so I wanted to combine my two interests.
The best thing about studying in Spain apart from the good weather is that you get to meet new people and learn a new culture.
My plans are to either continue studying in London or look for a job anywhere in the world.
Miriam – Sweden

I study fashion and I study in the first year.

Hafiz Rosli – Sweden
Graphic Design student
Interior Architecture Course in my 2nd term in my final 3rd year.
I’d been in Spain the summer before I applied, and I enjoyed it.
That the Academy is small. This is certainly my favorite factor because of the instant feedback or the useful but silly questions no one would ask in a big crowd.
That Monda is quite and close to the academy.
I’m still thinking about that. I will either stay here and find some work or move back to Qatar.

I’m studying interior architecture and i’m in my third and final year.
I choose Marbella Design Academy because of its size and location. The best thing about being a student at Marbella Design Academy is the cultural diversity.
Living Monda is relatively quiet, the people are nice and the scenery is amazing.
After graduation and having my official BA (Hons) degree i’m starting a small business back home.
