MUST campus

The campus of MUST is suburban. Students live in a close-knit community and enjoy the benefits of the natural environment around them. However, they also have access to urban entertainment such as shopping malls, restaurants and cinemas. Students have access to the extensive scientific library of the university. The collection of scientific papers helps them in conducting research. Thanks to international exchange programs at MUST, students can communicate with representatives of different countries and nationalities and thus expand their own horizons. And, the university contributes to this by regularly holding joint events for local and foreign students.
