Student Testimonial:
"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."
