Marbella has its unique micro-climate thanks to the Sierra Blanca mountain range. The peaks shelter the city from strong winds and cool the summer heat. The winter here is mild and summer is not too hot.

We highly recommend Andalucia with its wide variations.
From Marbella you can easily reach other popular destinations of Andalucia: Málaga, Córdoba, Cádiz, Ronda, Seville, Granada and much more!
We offer high standard hotels, minimum 4 stars up to 5 stars all-inclusive.
You can also choose a private villa with full service.

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.
Our students have an opportunity to combine study and leisure. Marbella offers the most interesting and fun activities such as sport (cable skiing, hiking, paintball, paddel tennis), leisure (pool and beach club parties) and of course educational (photoshoots, makeup and fashion shows, tours to wineyards, olive plantations and concerts).
