Miami Ad School’s Frequently Asked Questions

If you can´t find an answer to your questions send us an email at hola@miamiadschool.com

What kind of background do I need to have to study in Miami Ad School?

Our students are like snowflakes, no two are alike. Are you a lawyer who is bursting with creativity and needs to get out of that large law firm? Did you just graduate with a 4-year degree and realize that you really need a portfolio to get your dream job? Have you always been creative and wanted a career rather than be a starving artist? Then this school is for you!

Is the order and enrollment date important in order to apply?

We select the candidates in order of the enrollment material they send us. We respect this order and prioritize those who have sent their enrollment first. You can either send us all your documents at once or do this separately. A file will be open with your name and we will incorporate your documents as you send them. We will give you an answer once you are accepted to the school.

Do I need to have all the admission requirements?

Yes, you should have all the admission requirements in order to do our programs. However, we are here to help you and will guide you in anything you need.

When does the academic course start?

Miami Ad School never closes! We are open all year and students are either starting or graduating from the school. The dates for each program are different but we are always active. The Bootcamps take place during winter and the Portfolio Programs have classes all year (with vacation periods of course)

Will I receive any help to find accommodation?

Of course, we will help you with any way we can: we will let you know which are the best websites to find a house and will put you in contact with other students through our Facebook group who are also looking or renting their house.

Which is the best zone to live?

Our school is situated in the center of the city near the university area. You will be close to Malasaña, one of the best neighborhoods  to go out, have dinner or enjoy be at a terrace by the sun.

We advice you to live near the center if you want to be close to the city life and save some money on transport. You can also live by Chamberí in the areas of  Gaztambide, Arapiles y Trafalgar.

Madrid is not an expensive city. Here are some references so you can get an idea: Your most important expense will be rent which can be between  400 and 600€ a month. A metro/bus ticket is  1,50€ but if you are under 26 years you can get a monthly pass for 20€. A coffee can cost as little as 1€, and you can easily eat for 10€ in restaurants that have a daily menu. If you like to go out, there are many bars where you can have a beer for 2€ and you will also get “tapas” with your beer.
