Admission requirements to study in Bulgarian universities
The admission of foreign students is based on the premise of a completed secondary education equivalent of that offered in Bulgaria. In general – if you qualify for higher education in your home country, you are eligible for entry into Bulgarian universities and colleges. Unless you are applying for programs taught in English however, you will need to study Bulgarian for a year before being granted to study the full program.
Anyone who is not a Bulgarian citizen is regarded as a foreign student, and will fit in that quota and pay tuition fees accordingly. Foreign students must also be officially admitted by the Ministry of Education and Science.
As with similar systems around the world, entry into a master program requires a previously completed bachelor program in Bulgaria or abroad, just as a doctorate requires a completed master degree. Qualifications are evaluated and accredited through the National Evanluation and Accreditation Agency at the Council of Ministers.
