On November 18 this year, the Welcome Centre will be launched within the International Cooperation Office of the MUB - a place of comprehensive service for foreign students, PhD students and academic staff.
At the Welcome Centre, foreign students, doctoral students and academic staff will be able to receive professional help regarding their functioning at the University and in Bialystok.
The skillful Welcome Centre employees - friendly, energetic young people, will offer assistance in dealing with various matters at the University, in the city office or renting an apartment. People who operate the Welcome Centre are fluent in English, have participated in specialist training courses related to servicing foreign students, international cooperation workshops, intercultural communication workshops, as well as specialized English workshops. They are currently carrying out a study visit to San Pablo University in Spain to learn about the methods of professional service for people from abroad. In the nearest future they will also visit highly internationalized universities in Great Britain and Germany.
During your visit to the Welcome Centre, you will be able to get university guides, leaflets, student calendars, English-language document forms (e.g. related to foreign trips). In addition, a collection of university documents in English is currently being prepared, which will be issued in a friendly and handy form (university statute, organizational regulations, strategy, templates of forms and prints, the most important university resolutions and ordinances, documents regarding personal data protection, etc.) .
The International Cooperation Office will soon start working on the MyMUB smartphone app that will facilitate the functioning and acclimatization of people from abroad at our University. The Welcome Centre is also currently working on preparation of the next intercultural workshops, thanks to which the integrated international community of our University will be built. Preparations for making the English-language promotional movie of MUB have also begun. A profile of foreign MUB graduates on Facebook has also been launched.
Welcome Centre employees, together with the Promotion and Recruitment Office, will organize events to integrate the entire international academic community of UMB. We invite you cordially to the International MUB’s Karaoke Night - book your time on January 17, 2020! (start at. 8.00 pm).
