Universal University | Moscow

Universal University is the first independent university of creative industries in Russia, focused on building the future of creative industries, creating the modern expert community, and offering new opportunities for lifelong learning, personal growth, and professional development.

As the world shifts from a traditional commodity-based economy to a knowledge-based, creative economy, Universal University becomes a hub for creative industries. The university attracts industry practitioners to design study programs and lets students work on real briefs from day one.  

Based on the premises of the Moscow art-cluster ArtPlay, the University unites seven schools: the British Higher School of Art & Design, the School for computer technologies Scream School, Moscow Film School, the Moscow Architecture School MARCH, Moscow Music School, Moscow Advanced Communications School MACS, and the School of Education. 

Universal University offers British undergraduate and postgraduate programmes jointly with the University of Hertfordshire and London Metropolitan University, Russian CPD programmes, short courses, and courses for teenagers. 

About 3600 University students are engaged in CPD courses, British undergraduate and postgraduate programs. The University’s academic staff includes over 900 leading Russian and international experts in creative industries. The University partners with over 500 companies including Disney, Mercedes-Benz, BOSCH, Cartier, Adidas, Coca-Cola, МТS, and others.
