We share the latest news about studying medicine in Bulgaria with you

Yes. In some countries like USA you’ll have to sit the USMLE & in the Middle East you’ll have
to sit the medical board exams. But the diploma is still recognized world wide and in Europe
you won’t need to sit any medical exams after graduation (probably only a langauge exams
depending on where you want to practice).

Yes. In 5 of 6 Medical universities all students have to sit entrance exams in biology, chemistry
and English language. Having an certificate proving that your English langauge level is B2 or
above can be used instead of the entrance exam in English. At the university of Pleven,
citizens of non EU countries don’t need to sit entrance exams but have to show biology and
chemistry grades in school higher than 70%.

Yes. You will learn it during the first two university years. It’s necessary for every day life and
for the dialogue with your patients after second year.

Two years of pre clinical subjects, 3 years of clinical subjects and one practical year and state
exams during the practical year.

You should have had biology and chemistry in high school. If you revise and fresh up your
knowledge you’ll face less difficulties during the first two years.

No. You can be under 18 or 60+. As long as you wish to study medicine you’ll be fine.

No. It’s not a problem but you should revise your knowledge and also get yourself used to
long hours of studying.

Yes there are. In some cities you’ll find more options than in others. Let us know how we can
help you here.

If you are a non EU student you’ll need visa. Visa is a part of the service we do.

You can if you have working permission in the EU. But you won’t find time at all. Even for a
part time job you won’t have time during the first two years. So maybe you should focus on
working before starting Med school, in a gap year, or working during the summer vacation.
Some students have online or home office jobs. But there is not much time for this. Plus with
working in Bulgaria you will not be able to afford living and university costs.

No. Some universites mighty give you 500€ discount if you get excellent grades during the
year. For example the medical university of Plovdiv. But other universities don’t.

Yes ! Ask us and we’ll inform you when.

Between the cities there are bus shuttles and trains. In the City you can use taxis, metro (in
Sofia), Bus or bikes.

Yes. All subjects have practical parts that are obligatory.

There are tests during the year. MCQ, essays, open questions or oral. Then there are final
exams which normally include all the mentioned before. First oh have to pass the MCQ, then
you have to write 1-3 essays and then you’ll be asked orally about the esaays.

Let’s say yes. But it’s not smart to try to transfer back before finishing the state exams after
second year. Your country will recognize all the subjects. But the question they remains is, will
there be a seat waiting for you at your university back home ? It’s a 50:50 chance.
