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

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.

Interaction with one of the leading universities in the UK is carried out within the framework of cooperation with the School of Creative Arts ("art" and "design" study fields) and with the Hertfordshire Business School ("marketing" and "advertising" study fields).


The British Higher School of Design is a part of Universal University — university where the future of creative industries is being built, a new expert community is being formed, and there are wide opportunities for personal and professional development throughout life.

The University unites the School of Computer Technologies Scream School, the Moscow School of Cinema, the Moscow School of Architecture MARS, the Moscow School of Communications MACS, the Moscow School of Music, the Academy of Blockboys, the Business Incubator and the Expert Center for Academic Quality and Creative Pedagogy.


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.


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.


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.


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.



BHSAD collaborates with the University of Hertfordshire (UK) since the School's opening in 2003. The University was founded in 1952 as Hatfield Technical College and is now one of the top 100 universities in the world under 50 years old according to the Times Higher Education ranking 2015.
