We offer an accommodation package that can be purchased by students wishing to study at either the Dénia or the Estepona campuses in Spain. Accommodation is a shared student apartment (on a same-gender basis) with your own private bedroom. This option provides a focused learning atmosphere where you will bond and grow together with your classmates.
Also included is a complementary minibus transfer from Alicante Airport to the campus in Dénia, for flights arriving before 13:00hrs on the scheduled arrival day of the practical course; and from Dénia to Alicante Airport on the scheduled departure day of the practical course.
Note there is no complementary minibus transfer at the Estepona campus due to there being a cheap and regular bus route running from the airport to Estepona.

NB - Accommodation package is not available in Malta.
