Skyline of Minsk

QS Best Student Cities ranking: 120th

Although Minsk may not be the first city that comes to mind when you think of studying abroad, as the capital of Belarus, it has a lot to offer.  Situated on the Syishlach and Niamiha rivers, this picturesque city is the financial, commercial and transportation hub of the Republic of Belarus. With this in mind, it is easy to see why the city achieves its highest ranking in the employer activity indicator, ranking 84th overall worldwide, suggesting that Minsk graduates are highly sought after by employers. 

Minsk has two universities ranked in the QS World University Rankings®; Belarus State University and Belarusian National Technical University. Belarus State University is a leading innovative, educational and scientific institution with a strong focus on research, located in the center of the city.

Belarusian National Technical University is one of the leading technical universities in Belarus, which according to their website provides students with a combination of “classical university traditions with modern approaches and technologies”, giving students a well-rounded approach to their education.

Bustling with museums and restaurants, there is plenty to do when studying is done for the day. Marvel at the impressive architecture dotted around the city and try the traditional local cuisine or opt for a more westernized meal, with Italian and French restaurants becoming increasingly popular throughout the city. There are plenty of museums available for those interested in Minsk’s rich history as a former communist country to explore, as well as art galleries for those interested in the city’s more creative elements.
