Welcome to Bulgaria!

A small but charming country located in the Balkan Peninsula, Bulgaria is full of attractions for both international students and tourists. If you want to study in Bulgaria, you’ll find an impressive range of natural environments: from warm, sandy beaches to striking mountains and ski resorts – and it’s also a relatively low-cost international study destination.

Established in the year 681, Bulgaria is one of the oldest European countries. Its rich history has left behind many historical sites, and plenty of stories and perspectives to explore. Between 1946 and 1989 it was a single-party communist state, but since then has been governed as a democratic republic. In 2007, it became a member state of the European Union, making it even easier to travel to and around the country.

Most of Bulgaria’s international students come from neighboring nations Turkey, Greece and Macedonia, with large numbers also coming from Nigeria, Germany, Italy, Israel, UK, Ghana, South Africa and India, amongst others. International students are likely to be attracted by the country’s well-developed higher education system, internationally recognized degrees, highly reasonable tuition fees and living costs, and the safe and friendly living environment.


Higher Education System

Bulgarian universities are well known in many scientific domains such as medicine, mathematics, technical (computer sciences, engineering), chemistry, biology, linguistics etc. Some Bulgarian Universities offer English, French or German programs and deliver double degree (Bulgarian and degree from the partner universities). So, it is very common to get American, French, British, German and so on degree from Bulgarian universities.

In Bulgaria universities, the level of education is very high while entrance requirements are slightly less stringent. Students choosing to complete their medical degree studying in Bulgaria, are free to do internship years and work throughout the EU, and many other countries as well.

International students are attracted by  good high education level, degree recognized in all over the world, large game of study opportunity (English, French, Germany and Bulgarian program, a lot of fields of studies, credit transfer, etc. ) very reasonable tuition fees and living costs, safe and friendly living environment etc.

Higher education in Bulgaria follows the Bologna process, which ensures compatibility with the qualifications on offer across European universities. This means that higher education follows the usual stages of bachelor’s, master’s, and doctorate. Undergraduate degrees take four years to complete, while master’s programs take one or two years (or five years if you directly after graduating from high school).
