Fully Equipped Apartments

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. 

Stay With Your Friends

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.

Stay After the Course

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.

Book Yourself

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


Malaga Airport (AGP)

For coming to Marbella you should book a flight to Malaga airport (AGP). The airport is located 60 km from Marbella and it takes around 40 minutes to get there. Many companies are flying here with direct flights.


Our Transfer

If you arrive at Malaga International Airport during your official check-in dates, we will assist with your transfer from the airport by private shuttle. Please, after booking a course, send confirmation of your flight details to us at least 10 days prior to your official arrival date.

As soon as you leave the arrivals hall of the Malaga Airport, you will see a ticket office and just behind here are the bus stops. All arrivals and departures are from the same bus stop (Terminal 3 – Arrivals). There is a direct bus from Malaga Airport to Marbella which will bring you to Marbella Bus Station. The Bus Station has a cafe, lockers and a place to charge your phones. From there you can use another bus or taxi to get to the city center or your apartment.

Taxi, Uber, Cabify

You can take a taxi at the arrivals sidewalk of Terminal T3 or you can order Uber or Cabify. The price will be around 60€ – 80€. We recommend you to check and compare the offers when you arrive and choose the best option. Because the price will vary depending on day of the week and time of day.

Rent a Car

There are car hire companies located inside the airport: Avis, Budget, Six, Europcar, Record & Go, Goldcar, Hertz & Firefly. You can rent a car in advance and add your flight number to the car booking so they know when to expect you.


Who Needs to Apply for a Visa?

Students who come from an European Union country do not need a visa to study at Marbella Event Academy.

If you do not hold a valid European Union passport, you must apply for a Student Visa Type D. You should apply for your student visa as soon as you receive the acceptance package. The process of obtaining a visa can take between 1-2 months.

Please, download this document “Student Visa” for the visa application procedure and the requirements. Note that the list of required documents may vary depending on your country of residence. Please, consult the Spanish Embassy / Consulate in your country of residence.

If you need legal assistance obtaining Spanish student visa, contact Anderson Abogados Marbella to receive help from professional lawyers.


European Health Insurance Card

For the students who are citizens of the countries that accede to the Schengen treaty, there is a common document called the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC).  

The EHIC ensures health coverage for travel made for work, study or tourism reasons. 

The EHIC identify the owner of the card as a user of the European Health System and gives access to available health resources from any European country in which the EHIC is valid: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Croatia, Denmark, Slovakia, Slovenia, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Norway, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, United Kingdom, Czech Republic, Romania, Sweden and Switzerland. 

The EHIC is valid from the date of receipt until the expiry date indicated therein. 

For more information you can consult here.

Private Health Insurance

If you are not a citizen of the countries that accede to the Schengen treaty, you will need a type D student visa to enter Spain and will need a private insurance to apply for it. Please, check below the specific requirements of the Spanish Consulate for the health insurance:

  • The insurance must cover the entire period of your stay in Spain.
  • You must have a minimum of €30,000 coverage. Keep in mind that the maximum policy (or maximum coverage) is the maximum amount your insurance plan might pay for your eligible medical expenses. The minimum required by the embassy is €30,000, however, if you want more coverage, you can choose a plan with a higher policy maximum.
  • No deductible. A plan deductible is an amount you’ll need to pay out-of-pocket before your insurance plan can start paying. By choosing a $0 deductible, you make sure your plan can start covering your eligible medical expenses right away.
  • The plan must include repatriation.

Please note that requirements may vary depending on the consulate of each country or city, so it will always be better to confirm with the appropriate authorities before purchasing an insurance plan.

If you need help in choosing a health insurance company, you can contact Anderson Abogados Marbella to avoid mistakes when ordering an insurance.
