international standards in art & design education

The school was established in 2003 to educate students according to the highest international standards within the spheres of art and design

LEADERSHIP

The British Higher School of Art and Design is one of the most important educational centres in Russia. BHSAD works in close partnership with the School of the Creative Arts of the University of Hertfordshire in the UK and specialises in professional education in various creative fields.

The School offers the unique opportunity to study in Russia and obtain a British degree. Studies at the British Higher School of Art and Design are complete degrees, fully validated by the University of Hertfordshire.

BHSAD is an innovative, creative and enterprising institution focused on a student-centred approach and dedicated to enjoyment in learning and work. The School has always been a place of integrity where the individual is respected and excellence is praised.

EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMMES

Today, the School is developing Art & Design education in two ways. Students studying in British higher education programmes receive a world class education in 3 to 5 years, depending on the choice of study mode. Another string to the School’s bow is our Continuing Professional Development courses for practicing designers or those students who are willing to seek a new profession in the creative arts. Additionally the School offers various short and preparatory courses as well as courses for school kids.

BHSAD, alongside with the Moscow Film School, Scream School and the Moscow Architectural School MARCH, are members of a consortium of educational institutions representing first-class education in the creative industries sphere.

ASSOCIATIONS 

BHSAD is a member of the following international associations: British Design and Art Direction (D&AD), Interior Educators Association and International Interior Design Association.
