Do you have any age limit or other requirements?

Students of all ages are welcome to sing up for our courses!

Only for our Bartending courses we have a requirement: you have to be 18 years old (because during the class students use and taste alcoholic drinks). But if you have a permission of your parents, you will be able to study without alcoholic drinks tasting.

What is the language of the courses?

We have courses in English, Swedish, Spanish and Arabic.

If I want to go with one or more friends and we want the Academy to provide the accommodation, can we stay in the same room?

Of course, just write your friend’s name in the application and we will arrange this! You can also choose to share a room with a friend who is taking our other courses at the same time as you.

What happens if you do not pass the final test?

We have a unique training guarantee that means you can go for the course parts you need to practice extra for free (any change of flight and extra accommodation is the student’s own responsibility).

How many hours of studying students have each day?

How does it work with accommodation?

Add accommodation during the course. During May, June and July 2021 we offer shared rooms in Marbella and Puerto Banus area. All apartments are located within walking or a short bicycle ride to one attraction as the beach, the Academy, restaurants, supermarkets, night clubs, exchange offices or shopping. The price for 1 month is around 350 € for a standard apartment, 500 € for a deluxe apartment or villa. The pictures will appear in autumn 2020.


You will stay in an apartment with a shared kitchen, TV, washing machine, etc. To make the atmosphere in the group as friendly as possible, you will share a room with your classmates. We think it is important that you feel at home in a new environment with new friends and experiences.

Note that all accommodations are nice and of high Spanish standards, but do not look alike and have different sets of equipment. The standard can vary a bit between rooms and apartments, as well as from the pictures.


If you are coming to study with friends and you wish to live together, write it in your application. This applies even if your friends have booked another one of our programs (Dj, Bartender, Makeup) the same period as you.


We can usually help you to find an apartment if you would like to stay and work after the course. But be aware that the landlord usually requires one month’s deposit and 1 month rent in advance as you move in.


If you prefer to book the accommodation by yourself, we will recommend you various hotels, hostels and rooms for rent.

When I need to book a course to make sure that I have a place?

First come first served. Our courses are very popular and places are limited, so it is better to book as soon as possible. Check the dates of the courses on our website.

Are you a registered education company?

Yes. Marbella Event Academy is a registered training company “Event And Education Group”, based in Spain.

Which currency is used in Spain?

Spain has used the euro since 2002. It replaced the old peseta and is the only currency accepted in Spain.

Do I need a work permission to work in Spain?

If you are a citizen of the European Union, then you do not need a work permission. You just need to receive a NIE number at the local Police Station.

If you are not a citizen of the European Union, you will need a permission.

Is it easy to get an apartment / accommodation after the course if I want to stay?

We can usually help to find an apartment if you would like to stay after the course. But keep in mind that most of the time, the landlord requires 1 month deposit and 1 month rent in advance when you move in.

Can I use my VISA card or similar to withdraw money?

Yes, you can use all cards in all ATMs in Spain free of charge.

What if I get injured during the trip?

Our students can reach us 24 hours a day if anything happens. We will assist and help with everything: to make an appointment with a doctor, find and visit a hospital, contact an insurance company, etc.

If you come from an European Union country, make sure you have your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). An EHIC gives you the right to access state-provided healthcare during a temporary stay in another EU country, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein or Switzerland.

If your country is not a part of European Union, you will have to make travel insurance.

Are there any gyms in the area?

Yes, there are a lot of gyms in the area. Ask us and we will show you where you have a student discount.

Which brands are used during the Makeup courses and are they animal tested?

We only use products that have not been tested on animals!
We at the Marbella Event Academy think that it is important not to stick to a brand. During the lessons you will be able to use several different professional  brands so that you will have a greater knowledge of different products when you will work after the course.

What experience do I need before signing up for a course?

Whether you have an experience or not you can sing up for any of our courses.
All the courses are designed for students of all levels to get knowledge from the Beginner level or to improve and take the skills to the next stage.

What if for whatever reason I will be forced to cancel the training?

If you for whatever reason are forced to cancel the training you are welcome to take the course free of charge at any available date within 2 years (see terms and conditions when booking).
