DANISH designer Helle Byrn first opened the doors of the Marbella Design Academy 20 years ago, and now it has emerged as one of Europe’s leading design schools.
Thanks to Helle’s vision and determination, the academy has grown exponentially to become one of Europe’s top design schools.
“With 20 years of knowledge and experience of teaching design, I believe that our academy can compete with the best design schools in Europe, if not the world,” said events manager and lecturer, Alan Gomez.
“We offer an exclusive and ‘boutique’ standard of teaching, with plenty of personal tutor attention where every student is important to us. We excel in that ‘personal touch’.”
In 2008, the continually-expanding academy moved from Marbella to its current location in Monda.
The modern, stylish campus was purpose-built to fulfill the requirements expected of an official higher education institution, with all the necessary facilities with a glamorous twist.
In 2009, the academy was delighted to achieve state recognition from the Spanish Ministry in Education, and in 2013 the Interior Architecture, Graphic Design and Fashion Design programmes were validated by Middlesex University, in London.
Every student who graduates receives an official UK BA(Hons) degree from the top London university. For more information, visit www.designschool.com
