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

CONSORTIUM

The British Higher School of Art and Design, together with the Moscow Film School, the Scream School and the Moscow Architecture School (MARCH) form the Consortium of independent educational institutions that offer high-quality education in creative fields.

EDUCATION AS A LIFESTYLE

We believe that education should not be limited to the school facilities or the framework of the course. A desire for personal growth is a lifestyle, it means constantly provoking change, being bold, active, open, moving forward despite fear, experimenting and having positive attitude towards everything.

DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

The common values and perception of design as a set of moral and social principles are the main link that brings together students, tutors, staff and partners of the School's. These principles guide us in everything we do, from developing educational programs to joint projects that we carry out together with the industry.

A PLACE FOR CREATIVE POWER

There is no absolute truth or final destinations in design. We are a community of creative fellow-thinkers whose knowledge, resources, educational techniques, experience and connections can bring anyone who joins us to a whole new level of personal and professional development and help them make their boldest ideas a reality.

INNOVATION LEADERS

We constantly develop and implement cutting-edge technologies and methods to our educational programs in order to enrich and upgrade the students’ experience. We eagerly respond to changes in the world around us, welcome new ideas and solutions, while sticking to our principles.



WHAT MAKES THE SCHOOL UNIQUE?

EFFECTIVE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMMES

The quality of the School's educational programmes enables students to achieve outstanding results in their studies and boost their professional development. A unique combination of intensive project-based learning, independent studies and conceptual and technical development helps students to acquire the expertise and skills that are highly sought after on the job market.

BEST TUTORS

Only the most highly-qualified specialists who have met our rigorous selection criteria teach at BHSAD. The School has over 300 teaching staff from Russia, UK and other countries – all providing most current expertise and knowledge of creative industries. This gives students a valuable opportunity to gain relevant theoretical knowledge and practical skills.

IMPRESSIVE LEVEL OF RESOURCES

No other design school, whether state or private, in Russia or any given post-Soviet state can boast of such an impressive level of resources and equipment. The School continually develops and improves its information and technical resources to provide effective learning support and a welcoming environment. Our facilities enable students to realise their most ambitious ideas and concepts in order to meet the highest standards of the global creative industry.

STRONG INDUSTRY CONNECTIONS

The School has close relationships with many leading international and local companies across different industries. These partnerships help students make the most of collaboration with top specialists and allow them to work on social and live projects thus gaining practical experience. Master-classes, lectures and career days where students meet local and international artists, designers, entrepreneurs, photographers, and other creative professionals are regularly conducted.
