School of Education is a project created by the Universal University, a major Russian university for creative industries. Over the past 16 years, we have paid special attention to researching latest teaching approaches and introducing progressive, evidence-based teaching methods to creative education.
Since its foundation, the University has served as a platform for creating a new educational landscape and rethinking traditional approaches. Our goal is to share the expertise we have accumulated at the Universal University to add to the education of the future.

We believe that educators embody life-long learning. Their programmes enhance self-directed learning skills and equip students with the tools to keep learning long after the course ends.
understanding the context and critical thinking
We are certain that education reflects and informs the reality. Therefore, all our educational programmes develop the skills crucial to understand, analyze, and interpret the nuances of the contemporary world and the world of the future.
We begin the design of our courses with people in mind. We create organic, learner-centered educational environments and pass this value to our students.
In a world that already has everything but still demands new solutions, the skill to reinvent education is critical. We aim to instill the audacity to rethink the reality in all our students.
learning from the community
We strive to shape our students into the community of fellow-thinkers, the community of people who value one another's contribution to learning and who recognize the importance to maintain this value in their own lives.
