Introduction

The British Higher School of Art and Design (Moscow)was established in 2003 to teach and train 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.

Today, the British Higher School of Art and Design is developing art & design education in two ways. Students on the British higher education programmes receive a world class education over 3 to 5 years, depending on the choice of study mode, which could be continued in the UK or elsewhere.

Another string in the School’s bow is retraining programmes and Continuing Professional Development courses for practicing designers.

The British Higher School of Art and Design, alongside with the Moscow Film School, School of Computer Graphics Scream School and Moscow Architectural School MARCH, are members of a consortium of independent educational institutions representing first-class education in the sphere of creative industries.
