The article reveals some aspects of the problem of transforming the Ukrainian design education system through the prism of international experience. This problem is caused by the long-term neglect of the importance of the humanitarian segment of education in Ukraine, which, in turn, has become a determinant of the accumulation of numerous problems. In order to achieve the goal and objectives, it was important, firstly, to refer to the relevant source base, and secondly, to analyse certain aspects of the educational activities of higher education institutions abroad, in particular Seian University of Art and Design (Otsu, Shiga, Japan), Royal Collage of Art (London, Great Britain), KEDGE Design School (Marseille, France), Istituto Pantheon Design & Technology (Rome, Italy). The analytical and synthetic activities carried out allowed us to identify the best international practices in this area and propose vectors for the transformation of domestic design education. These include: multidirectional international cooperation; introduction of a practical component of student training on the basis of business institutions and enterprises; focus on the educational needs of students; active use of digital innovative technologies, etc. We see the prospects for further research in this direction in the practical application of the proposed steps to modernise design education.
