Admissions

Every student is unique. Are you a lawyer but are bursting with creativity and need to turn your life around? Have you studied an advertising career but realized that you need a good portfolio to find a job? Do you want to make your vocation your profession? Whatever your case is, this is the school for you! It is not necessary to have a career or previous studies, however, it is convenient to know that our work rhythm is hard and intense. Therefore, you will have to love what you do so you won't mind spending many hours at school. But don't worry, we have a kitchen.

We make the selection of candidates when we receive the applications and we respect the order in case we run out of places. You can send us all the documentation at once or send it little by little, we will open a file in your name and we will incorporate the information as you send it. Once the registration material has been sent, we will give you an answer within a maximum of two days to confirm your admission.

You need to fulfill all the requirements we ask for in order to enroll in any of our programs but, of course, we are here to help you and we will give you a hand with everything you need if any of them is complicated for you.

Miami Ad School never closes! Throughout the year we have students coming in and out of school. The dates of each program are different, but we are always active. Bootcamps take place in the winter and spring. As for Portfolio, you can start your program in January, April, July or October, as there are different calls. Portfolio Program students have classes throughout the year (with breaks, of course).

Accommodation

Of course, we will give you a hand in everything we can: we will tell you the best websites where to find accommodation, we will put you in contact with other students who are looking for or offering housing through our Facebook group and we will advise you on what you need.

The school is located in the center of the capital, in the downtown district, in the neighborhood of Malasaña, one of the perfect neighborhoods to go out at night, have dinner, eat or just hang out on a terrace in the sun. We recommend you to live in the most central neighborhoods as you are close to everywhere and you can even save on transportation if you move around on foot. Besides the Universidad area, you can also live in the neighborhood of Chamberí, preferably the areas of Gaztambide, Arapiles and Trafalgar.

Madrid is not an expensive city, we tell you some references to give you an idea: the most important expense is the accommodation with all its expenses (water, electricity, internet) and can be between 400 and 600€ per month in total if you live in a central neighborhood sharing an apartment. A single bus/metro ticket costs 1,50€, but there are transport passes that make it cheaper: if you are under 26 years old, you can access the youth transport pass, which involves a total of 20€/month and allows you to use all public transport services in Madrid unlimited. A coffee can cost you approximately 1,50€, you can eat for 10€ or less in restaurants with a menu of the day or take-away places or do your shopping in a supermarket at quite affordable prices. If you like to go out, there are plenty of bars where you can have a beer for about 2€ and, in addition, they will serve tapas in almost every place.

Bootcamps

Yes, the limit for the bootcamps is 25 students. So we recommend you to hurry if you are interested and don't want to be left out because places fly.

The sooner you register, the sooner you will secure your place! However, the registration period is open until one month before the start of the Bootcamp you want to attend.

It's a great question, and one that we Our Bootcamps have 132 hours of classroom time in school, plus 70 hours of Lab time dedicated to working on the projects you'll have to develop. 

Here's what they often say: a creative lifestyle means doing something new every day. Our graduates often say that the biggest draw of their jobs is the excitement and adventure. You might be writing a script and setting the stage for an upcoming commercial. You might be collaborating on a viral TikTok campaign. And, of course, there's a whole universe of possibilities in between.

Eso no quiere decir que todo sea fácil. Sin embargo, parte del atractivo de una carrera creativa son los retos a los que te enfrentarás. Los profesionales creativos tienden a sentirse motivados por los nuevos problemas que hay que resolver con ingenio.
