Those students who come from countries that do not belong to the European Union will need a student visa to be able to reside in Spain. It is very important that you verify the requirements to obtain the visa for your nationality and that you manage them on time.

If you do not have a valid European passport, you must apply for a TYPE D STUDENT VISA to study at Les Roches Marbella.

Please remember that obtaining a visa can take between 6-8 weeks. If you have already received the letter of admission in Les Roches Marbella, you must apply for your visa as soon as possible. If you have any questions about the process you can talk with your Educational Counselor or contact the admissions department:

All new students who do not have Spanish or European nationality must manage, for legal reasons, a Type D Student Visa at a Spanish Embassy or Consulate in their country of origin. This formality takes 6-8 weeks.

To complete this procedure, students must provide a copy of the documents submitted in their application for registration (see the Residence Permit Process). We advise all new students to read Residence Permit Process.

Accident and medical insurance is mandatory for students in Spain. Please, check if your medical insurance will be valid in Spain or not.

Therefore, students may have:

The medical and accident insurance provided by the school, which covers them when they are on campus or at an internship.
Your own medical and accident insurance.
If you are a European citizen, the national social security insurance of your country of origin.
