Communicating in English

BHSAD is committed to fostering a comfortable environment for students from different countries — to provide them with more than just the best education; to create opportunities for productive communication and to maximize their employment opportunities.

All teaching and communication for the British undergraduate programmes, as well as for Foundation Art and Design, is conducted in English. In our preparatory programmes, students and tutors use English for training videos, briefs, homework, sketchbooks and presentations; Russian is frequently used for internal communication.

English is the main language of communication for foundation and undergraduate programmes


Students study topics in English that are related to art and design, which are both useful for language studies and in helping their career development.

As well as grammar fundamentals and comprehensive theory, our experienced tutors give students the opportunity to practice their language skills to overcome language barriers and learn to communicate freely.
