Marbella Event Academy will assist and provide you with all the necessary information you need for coming to study in Marbella.
We offer different options 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.
FULLY EQUIPPED APARTMENTS
You will stay in an apartment with a shared kitchen, TV and washing machine. 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 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. We also have some staff apartments to rent at low cost. Depending on the season and the number of places we can offer beds for about 150 Euro / week.
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.
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.
You can read about other available options below:
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.
If you come from an EU country you don’t need VISA to study at Marbella Event Academy. If you do not hold a valid EU passport, you must apply for a Student Visa Type D. Please see below general guidelines for applying for a Student Visa Type D.
Students from EU countries can obtain a European Health Insurance Card, which gives free health care in Europe. However, we recommend you to have a private insurance also.
Students from non-EU countries will require a student visa to enter Spain and will need a private insurance to apply for it. Please, check below the specific requirement 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.
