With its international airport and modern motorway network Malaga is easy to get to and perfectly located for visiting other cities of Andalucía such as Granada, Sevilla, Cádiz, Nerja, etc. and even a weekend escape into Africa!

In Malaga you will find a Mediterranean lifestyle. Andalucians live life to the full making the most of their beaches, climate and music. The beach front restaurants and the many tapas bars and clubs to be found in the city are full of friendly local people, making it easy to meet Spaniards.

The Mediterranean climate of hot (but not too hot!) summers and mild, fairly dry winters, provides a perfect environment for relaxation and study.

In the summer (July, August and September) the temperature is generally in the upper 20s and lower 30s. It rarely, if ever, goes above 35ºC. Malaga is famous for having one of the best climates in Europe and our students can be seen sunbathing by the side of our pool during most of the year.
