Picture of Design Courses in Spain - Taught in EnglishThe 12-week Design Foundation Course is the perfect solution for all students who would like to improve their passion for Design or who have the dream of a BA university degree in Design, but do not have the required academic background to enter directly into our Bachelor of Arts Validated programmes.

The aim of this Design Foundation Course is to introduce students to the practice of being a designer. It will help them develop creative expression and their ideas, add meaning and context to their designs, and to identify where their design skills best lie.

On successful completion of the Design Foundation Course of the Marbella Design Academy, students are awarded a Design Foundation Course certificate of completion. Additionally, they will be eligible to enrol in one of our three-year International Bachelor of Arts with Honours validated programmes.

To ensure that all students have the possibility to access our three-year undergraduate design programmes, we are now offering the very flexible opportunity of attending this Design Foundation Course either at the Academy itself or even without leaving the confines of the home on both February and May intake.
Any student who chooses to attend virtually will still benefit from tutor attention and guidance through an interactive live-streaming system.  Students will be able to connect with our tutor in real-time and ask any questions they might have as they arise.

This 12-week Design Foundation Course, developed under the sole responsibility of Marbella Design Academy, is the perfect solution for students that do not fulfil the entrance requirements for entering our three-year Bachelor of Arts validated programmes, or are in doubt as to which BA (Hons) validated programme in Design to choose.
