    Visa Requirements

    Non-EU Student Visa Guidelines

    Non-EU student? Here's everything you need to know to apply for your Spanish student visa.

    Who needs a VISA?

    Anyone who is not an EU passport holder needs a student visa to study in Spain. While most student visa requirements are similar from country to country, it is you who must verify with the Diplomatic Mission, where you are going to apply, and the exact requirements for your country of residence, although an official information sheet issued by the corresponding Diplomatic Mission, will be sent by this Institution. Please keep in mind that there may be last-minute updates.

    What Documents Do You Need for Your Visa?

    • An official application form that we will send to you and you also can get from the Diplomatic Mission. For country-specific requirements, you can also contact the university.
    • A passport or travel document with a minimum of one year of validity after your planned arrival, although we always recommend that the passport be valid for six months after your planned departure.
    • A guarantee of the financial means necessary to cover the costs of your stay. You can live comfortably with monthly expenses at about 1.200 EUROS. Please check the university website.
    • Private health insurance with an insurance company authorized in Spain. Travel insurance will not be accepted.
    • A medical certificate stating that you do not suffer from any kind of illness that could generate severe repercussions on Public Health, according to the 2005 International Sanitary Regulation.
    • Criminal record reports from each country where you have resided for more than 6 months within the past 5 years.
    • The Admission Letter issued by MIUC for you to attend a full-time programme leading to a qualification/diploma or certificate of study.
    • Proof of accommodation.

    If you submit all your supporting documents to the Embassy at the same time as your application, your visa could be processed within one month.

    Campus Life & Facilities

    Cost of Living

    The cost of living in Marbella can vary significantly depending on the student´s lifestyle. Compared to other European cities, where living space is scarce and often overpriced for its standards, Marbella can be a very affordable place to live. Living expenses such as food, leisure, utilities, and transportation can comfortably be covered with 600€ per month.

    Marbella Inturjoven Youth Hostel

    Student Accommodation in Marbella

    Marbella Inturjoven Youth Hostel is ideally placed in the heart of the old town at only a ten-minute walk from the beach.

    It is a beautiful building with an air of Andalusian architecture, it has a garden, sunny terraces with stunning panoramic views of the Mediterranean sea, a swimming pool, tennis courts, a car park as well as free Wi-Fi. It is very near local bus routes that are very well connected, linking towns and cities across the country.

    House or Apartment Rental

    Student Accommodation in Marbella

    MIUC works with accredited real estate agents to find properties that best match the student's budget and requirements. When renting a property in Marbella or the surrounding areas it is important to consider the following:

    The duration of a standard long-term rental contract is 11 months and most landlords require a one or two-month deposit. The commission charged by the estate agent for their services will be a month’s rent.

    The difficulty of finding a property significantly increases during the months before and during the summer season so to fully benefit from this option, students should inform us of their requirements as early as possible before their course begins in September or February.
