Sun, Sand and Studies
Travel is all about new experiences, and as far as Marbella goes, you can expect a unique, eclectic and vibrant take on Spanish life. Despite being a small coastal town, it’s a thriving international hub, attracting celebrities and jet-set clientele from all over the world.
Back in the 1960s it was Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor, Marlon Brando, Orson Welles, Brigitte Bardot and Frank Sinatra. Today, it’s the likes of George Clooney, Cameron Diaz, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie that top up the city’s high profile and sophisticated charm.
But it’s not just the Hollywood stars that make Marbella what it is. Thousands of Brits, Germans, Scandinavians, Russians, Arabs, French and Chinese visitors flock here every summer, and many of them have already made the city their permanent home for most of the year.
Boasting a Sub-tropical Mediterranean climate with 320 days of sunshine each year, being able to catch rays as you read is a major perk of Marbella life. Don’t be intimidated by the glitz and glamour – while Marbella can be an expensive place, student budgets are catered for with affordable food, drink and accommodation that won’t leave you out of pocket.
From Parties to Planes
Marbella is a seasonal town, which makes it somewhat ideal for a student life. From late September to early June, the city bathes in its quiet small town atmosphere, allowing you to focus on your studies in peace. By the time the hustle and bustle of the summer season kicks in, you’ll be nearing the finishing line for your academic year, ready to let loose and have a well-earnt celebration.
If homesickness does kick in, Marbella is located closely to both Malaga and Gibraltar airports, making it easy to visit home, wherever that may be.
Chances are you’ll be too busy for sadness – with keen city links, stunning beaches and delicious cuisine, Marbella is the perfect place to work and play, helping you make the most of your time abroad.
Marbella is an tucked-away coastline resort. It offers much more pleasurable living options than large, saturated cities where living space is scarce and often overpriced for its standards.
