Testimonials "I’ve been fortunate to experience first-hand the way MIUC redefines the traditional learning process inherent to higher education, especially when it comes to the integration of new technologies. The professors here pay special attention to each student's individual abilities, tailoring their course accordingly. My favourite course is "Making Strategy Work in the 21st Century", as it has enabled me to grasp the concepts of a company’s 'mission', 'vision' and 'strategy' from an organisational point of view. It's always exciting to study away from home. I am able to explore new avenues of life in terms of culture, language, customs and the traditions of Spain. Studying here broadens my thinking as well as the scope of opportunities ahead of me. Marbella is gorgeous!" Maneesh Palli "Salam, my name is Soraya, I am 20 years old and I live in Marbella. I study Business at MIUC. So there is something that I really love about my school which is the extracurricular activities. Here at school, it’s super cool because we love sport, many many different sports like surfing, swimming, basketball, tennis and many more. And thank God the weather is super nice to help us for this kind of activities and also it helps us every day to have a good mood to go to school, to chill out and not be stressed out and also we have this chance to be with many many people from all around the world in class. So we are going to learn every day from each other. So it’s super super nice." Soraya Mediouni "Salamalaykoum, my name is Camilia and I study International Business here at Marbella International University. I have been in different universities around the world and the reason why I chose MIUC is because first of its faculty. We have professors and doctors holding degrees from one of the best universities in the world: Harvard, for instance. What they do is they take all the knowledge they acquired and they bring it to us on a silver plate. Another reason which is very important nowadays is the multicultural learning environment. What that means is that we have students from different countries with different nationalities and most of them speak more than three languages and I believe that this multicultural learning environment here in MIUC leads to a great understanding and appreciation of other cultures. MIUC also offers several foreign languages such as English, Arabic, French, Russian and Chinese. This helps students to think globally in the future. If you ask me I would say that MIUC is one of those universities that know how to define the word International because we have diversity, each student brings a unique culture and value to the university. Welcome to MIUC." Camilia Benidir [-]

It´s very multicultural here - Imagine the whole world gathered in one class!! It´s a challenge for me, but I´m up to the challenge and I´m happy here! My favourite lecture is with our Dean, Óscar. At MIUC, I am experiencing the best classes I have ever had, because of the interaction and debates with the other students, which have shown me how to understand more people from around the world. Just look at the sun outside! Here in Marbella, you can go outside and have a swim, do sports and hobbies. And the nightlife in nearby Puerto Banús is also amazing. The atmosphere both on and off campus is excellent." Ibrahim Abou El Khouded "My name is Tim, and I came down to Marbella MIUC University, and over here I am studying International Relations, as I was looking for a place where I can be efficient as a student, and where also the professors and lecturers can be efficient themselves. These are some of the main reasons, apart from being in a very good and beautiful place to be in and live in and study. I am happy to be here, to be honest; it is amazing, truly it is amazing, because once you find a set of small settings of interactive performance, you find out your performance actually accelerates, it is also very practical; this is why I like it. So it is practical and very interactive with fellow students, this creates an interactive atmosphere, which engages students more. For me, coming to Marbella MIUC, just gave me the opportunity to interact with this phenomenon, different backgrounds, different cultures, different dialects. It is actually a cosmopolitan school and a cosmopolitan city. Living in Marbella, for me it is like a dream come true, it is a really nice place, really cool, the ambience, the environment, the weather, the sunshine throughout the year, coming to Europe and finding out this place actually does not experience such a winter like UK or something, surprised me. It actually made me more eager to live here." Timothy Ngethe Mwangi [-]

I applied to many universities and I had many choices, but I had a friend here as well, and he told me how good the reputation of MIUC is, and I have been easily attracted, it is like involuntarily I fell in love with the school easily. As soon as I saw it on Facebook, I just wanted to come here and I saw the beauty of being at MIUC, because we might not have it all together, but together we have it all. I did not know that Marbella was a town, I thought it was a city, but when I came here I really enjoyed the place, it is full of historical places, and I have here some places here from my culture and I do not want to leave from here again. There is professionalism with professors, you feel they are flexible with you, and professors always want to push you towards that, that is why sometimes they need to push us more in exams, but they want us to be the best in the whole world. The facilities here have advanced technologies regarding the media labs and the IT, they have advanced products and advanced software, we can literally push it to the sky. One of the staff, his name is Igor told me “whatever you have, do not be afraid to bring it up, the sky is the limit” and here the sky is pretty high so do not be afraid of anything. Personal development, and skill development and academic development, it is all overall development; it is not just a lifestyle it is everything." Adam Rakha "Hello! My name is Alexander Dudek, I´m 19 years old, from Poland but I was born in the Netherlands and I´m studying BA Marketing and Advertising in MIUC. I researched English-speaking schools in Spain and I found this one; I really liked it, I was interviewed and I got in and I love it here. MIUC is one of a kind; every day, since day 1, I learn something new about other people and their culture. Located in one of the best cities in Spain, here in Marbella, MIUC is still a small institution, but it has got great potential for expanding. The professors here are amazing, they are experienced, and they apply their knowledge to real life examples and makes us students, especially me, understand everything more clearly. The atmosphere in the class is amazing. You feel the intimacy, there are few students, and you feel that you engage more with friends, classmates and professors. The professors actually see you not like in a huge school where there are 100 people in the classroom and professors only come to give lectures and you have to study it. Here, the professors want you to know more. Before I came here, to be honest, I didn’t have any desire to study, I wasn’t happy but here I feel happy and I want study more. Marbella in an amazing city, you can see the sun for 360 days a year, it’s just like a huge bomb of positivity, when you wake up and see the sun and it motivates you to do something outside, not only sit and study but also to experience the culture. Just like MIUC´s slogan of “Learn , Live and Explore” which is Learn in an excellent environment , Live in the best city of Spain and Explore what life gives you – be it football, be it art, be it meeting new people here outside, clubbing, partying whatever you want you can do it here, you can find it."
