  • PREPARING THE STUDY PROGRAM (LEARNING AGREEMENT)

In order to prepare their individual study program (Learning Agreement) students have to make their choice of subjects from the List of courses offered in English. The list of courses can be found in the Courses taught in english menu.

All students and coordinators must keep in mind that the courses may vary upon arrival.

The UNWE applies the European Credit Transfer System in all undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate programs. Credits earned at our university can be transferred to other higher educational institutions in any of the participating European countries.

At the end of each course, students are awarded a grade. This can be based upon a written examination, a test, project or any combination of these. According to Bulgarian education system all marks and grades are awarded using a six-point scale, with 6 representing a 'perfect' score (excellent). The table below represents how these marks compare with other common grading systems. It also shows the average distribution of the marks.

  • ARRIVING IN SOFIA

Most students arrive in Sofia at Sofia Airport, Central Railway Station or Central Bus Station depending on the preferred transport.

Normally, we arrange for someone to meet the student and escort him/her to the dormitories or to the UNWE.

In order to do that, please inform the ERASMUS office at UNWE for the exact date and time of your arrival at least three weeks in advance!!!

  • ENTRY AND LEGAL RESIDENCY IN BULGARIA

Visa

Depending upon the nationality, students may need to obtain a long-stay entry visa before coming to Bulgaria.

Residence permit

Unless the students are an EU/EEA or Swiss citizens, they may also need to finalize their application for a residence permit.

For more information and to find out whether one needs a visa or residence permit, please, click here.

  • HEALTH INSURANCE

If the student is a citizen of an EU member state or of Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland, and plans to stay temporarily (up to 90 days) in Bulgaria, he/she might consider obtaining the European Health Insurance Card. Presentation of the European Health Insurance Card guarantees reimbursement of the medical costs on the spot, or soon after the student returns home.

For more information, please, click here.

If the student is not a citizen of any of these countries, he/she should check with his/her national authorities if there is entitlement to free or subsidized health treatment in Bulgaria.

Please, note that public health care security does not cover all kinds of medical services, so students might consider supplementing it with private health Insurance.
