Study Medicine in Bulgaria

Studying medicine in Bulgaria is becoming an increasingly popular option for EU students due to the cheaper tuition fees, the quality lifestyle and cheap living costs in the country.

Bulgaria has been a member of the EU since 2007 and as such, the diplomas that obtained on graduation are fully recognised in all EU countries.

Bulgaria has strong traditions in medical studies and its universities are among the most reputable ones in the EU and beyond. Medical programmes are offered in English which is a great opportunity for foreign students. Tuition fees are relatively low and funding is also offered by certain financial institutions in Bulgaria.
