Student Life in Bialystok


Białystok is northeastern Poland’s largest city and the capital of the Podlaskie Province.  Sitting close to the borders with Belarus, Lithuania, and Russia, Białystok is a very culturally diverse city and home to the inventor of the universal language Esperanto. The city is surrounded by numerous natural and historical sites. Among these is the UNESCO listed Białowieski National Park, the habitat of the European bison.

These are all well worth putting on your list of must-sees: the Saint Sophia Orthodox Church of Divine Wisdom, which was modeled on the Hagia Sophia in the former Constantinople (Istanbul); the Muslim Prayer House that now serves as a mosque; and what used to be known as the Cytron Synagogue, which today is home to the Śledziński Gallery, displaying artifacts from the famous Śledziński family.

Student Exchange Programs


Bialystok University of Technology cooperates with many academic centers all over the world. We have over 500 active bilateral agreements in scientific and educational cooperation with foreign partners.

Under the Erasmus+ Programme you can study for 1 semester or 2 semesters at one of our partner universities, get to know other cultures and languages, and meet new friends. Every year, nearly 500 students take this opportunity. Universities in Italy, Spain, Portugal, and Denmark are very popular among our students and staff, while our university is mostly visited for a semester or two by guests from Portugal, Spain, and Turkey. International guest students can also apply as so-called free-movers, which means they can study for 1 or maximum 2 semesters without taking part in an exchange programme.
