Universities : Why Study in Bulgaria?

Why Study in Bulgaria?

Studying abroad in Europe is worth it. Studying in Bulgaria is a must. If you are still wondering whether to apply at a Bulgarian university and become a student at one of the best universities in Europe, let us tell you why more than 1000 students every year decide to move to Bulgaria.

Great higher education in Bulgaria

The Bulgarian universities are constantly doing their best to attract students from all over the world and improve their services.The Bulgarian medical universities attract thousands of international Medical school students every year.

Small country, Big opportunities

Bulgaria is considered as the start-up champion of Europe so many young people find a cool job throughout their studies in Bulgaria and even settle down here after they graduate. You didn't see this coming, right? Despite its size, Bulgaria has many young people who are innovative, creative and are looking forward to making the country even more attractive for people who wish to invest in a business. Some of the best Bulgarian start-ups include ClaimCompass, Melissa Climate and Enhancv.

Low expenses in Bulgaria

Living in Bulgaria is a lot cheaper in comparison to living in other European cities. In the capital Sofia, you can enjoy lovely dinner and a drink at a restaurant for the mere 5 EUR. Even 20-min ride with a taxi costs around 6 EUR. In smaller cities, it is even cheaper. And as we all know, this aspect is quite important when you are simply a student and you don't have much budget.

Perfect location

Bulgaria is generally a safe country, and people are quite friendly. You should however use common sense when you are outside of the main tourist areas, i.e. don't show off that you have money, don't dress too touristy, watch out for your belongings. If in Sofia, try to avoid dark streets at night. Stepping in a pothole is a much greater danger in Bulgaria than getting robbed.

Low tuition fees in Bulgaria

If the tuition fees in the United Kingdom scare you, you will most certainly love the prices in Bulgaria (especially when it comes to studying at the best universities). Prices in Bulgaria are much lower than other European countries, even if the foreign students pay more than locals. Then at the end of your studies, you have an internationally recognized diploma and learn from different cultures and get a lifetime experience of living in a foreign country by your own for some years, an experience that is highly appreciated later when you have to look for a job.

Lower entry requirements at Bulgarian universities

Some of the best universities in the United Kingdom or in any big European country do not offer a decent amount of places for future applicants so the competition is quite fierce and everyone must be a straight A student. This way, even if you have A- or B could mean that the universities in Europe have closed their doors for you. However, in Bulgaria it is much different.

Local and international

On the one side, Bulgaria has only recently started to become a famous destination for people who wish to live or study abroad. Hence, you will have more chance to meet locals and explore a different culture during your studies. On the other side, each city is getting more and more international so you can meet people from everywhere and enjoy international events that will allow you to enjoy your study life in Bulgaria to the fullest.

Love summer? Prefer winter?

You want to go skiing in winter or sunbathing in summer? Or you prefer spring and its lovely colours in the mountains or enjoy autumn and explore the mountains? Well, Bulgaria has it all. If you are sick of the rainy weather or the eternal heat in your home country, Bulgaria has four different seasons that you will most certainly enjoy.

Internationally recognized Diploma

Bulgaria is a member of the European Union so all certificates and diplomas issued in the country are recog-nized internationally. Hence, if you wish to work abroad or persue another degree in another country, it will be much easier for you to find one and get accepted. Last but not least, as we are in the European Union, exchange programmes such as Erasmus + are available at any university!

Master > Bachelor

Studying Medicine, Dentistry or Pharmacy in Bulgaria is quite advantegous as students start with a Master's degree. Hence, after approximately 6 years of studying (which includes practice as well), you can start working straight away and not waste additional time on looking for a Master's degree or practical experience (if you have just completed your Bachelor's degree, let's say).

We have the whole package.

The country is not very big so all beaches and mountains are just a couple of hours away. In Sofia, Vitosha mountain (where you can go skiing) is just a 30-min ride by public transportation.
