    BSU was founded in 2000, on the basis of a former Pedagogical Institute. Almost 3,000 students attends this university. Polish language is taught at Faculty of Regional Studies and International Relations and at Faculty of Translation. Classes are led by a couple of Azerbaijani teachers and native speakers from Poland. There are about 10 young people each year who start learning our language at both of the faculties. And every year about 20 students graduate from BSU with a BA and a knowledge of Polish language and culture.Lecture room
