What is Quarter Away?

The Quarter Away option allows students in the portfolio programs to study and intern in up to four additional cities around the world. You can study in a different school location, intern or participate in an Agency Lab, where you actually go to school evert dat inside an agency.

Look at the Internships section of the website to see the different options and read stories from our students about their amazing experiences. 

*Please note:  

International students within the United States can intern in agencies outside of the US, participate in Agency Labs or attend other Miami Ad School locations. International students are not eligible to intern within the US.

Since Boot Camp students are only in school for one quarter they don’t participate in Quarter Away. Sorry guys. 

Can I transfer credits?

We never want you to repeat a course if you are already accomplished in the subject matter. We have skills tests to test out of the different Adobe applications. Just contact your admissions advisor for information.

Sometimes advanced placement is awarded for prior training or work experience but keep in mind the typical Miami Ad School student already has related educational or work experience. If you skip over too many classes then you are not building a portfolio. The most advanced placement allowed is eight classes/two quarters and this happens very rarely.

What kind of background do I need to have?

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!
