Student life

Student cannot live by education alone – especially a student at AGH UST and especially in Krakow. Intellectual development is followed by cultural and sports development. Many organizations operating at AGH UST provide students with an opportunity to develop their interests and discover new ones as well. Opportunities are numerous indeed, starting with artistic groups (an excellent example here is the Student Representative Orchestra of AGH UST), through typical forms of recreation (hiking and cycling), to finish with some specialist ones (mountaineering, diving, speleology and sailing clubs.) All University students are represented by the AGH UST Students’ Board, which deals with social, living, cultural and sports issues, as well as organises faculty excursions and balls, Miner’s Day and Ironfounder’s Day meetings, as well as – probably the most popular among students – the Juvenalia Krakow Students’ Festival.
