Despite its size, Bulgaria is a country with big opportunities and much to explore. Institutions and universities are constantly improving to attract more international students. Bulgaria’s capital and largest city, Sofia is a historically well-preserved city and home to the biggest universities in Bulgaria - including Sofia University St. Kliment Ohridski.
A bachelor’s degree in Bulgaria costs 2,900 – 3,900 € per year, the tuition fee for a master’s degree is 3,000 – 3,900 € per year and for a doctorate’s degree 4,000 - 8,000 € per year.
Students who are not EU/EEA residents must apply for a Bulgarian Student Visa (D-type Visa) which is valid for three to six months. To apply for a student visa, you are obligated to meet the following requirements: photocopy of your passport (passport must be valid for at least a year), acceptance letter from the University, medical insurance, colored photo ID, ticket booking confirmation and proof that the tuition fees have been paid.
