School of Design, Belgrade

The history of the School of Design in Belgrade is 57 years long. This history consists not only of numerous generations of graduated designers – it also involves all socio-political circumstances of this period.

The School, since the time of its founding in May of 1963, has been making every possible effort to define what profile of young professionals it should educate, in order to meet the needs of contemporary society and economy.

The school is constantly improving the curriculum and working on connecting the field of art with the actual needs of domestic and foreign economy.

Our students, when they graduate, are prepared either to continue their studies or to pursue employment possibilities.
