Transfer Students

Transferring Universities

You study abroad but you would like to move to Bulgaria? Or you have already graduated so you are now interested in a Master's programme or PhD in Bulgaria? What we recommend you is to first look at all Bulgarian universities that offer study programmes in English. Of course, you can also make up your mind about what you want to study as well as take a look at what the necessary steps for a successful admission in Bulgaria are. As a last step, we recommend contacting Inter HECS - Study in Bulgaria. Who we are and how we can help you - find out here!

Transfer to a Bulgarian University

We know that sometimes the university where you study is not what you have expected and wanted. You might be paying too high tuition fees or perhaps you just wish to change scenery and finish your studies in a different place or in a different field. Whatever the case is, Inter HECS will help you with everything linked with transferring universities. If you decide to work with us, we will enroll you at one of the best Bulgarian universities. In case you have credits from university courses, we can help you get them recognized at the Bulgarian university you want to transfer to. The procedure involves presenting your syllabus for each subject you want recognized to the respective professor from the department and faculty in the Bulgarian university. Basically, you need to arrange meetings with the teachers and receive their approval individually. An Inter HECS representative will assist you, go with you (or even instead of you) and help achieve everything easy and quickly.

We review each case individually and carefully. In order to respond to your needs, we will create an individual transfer plan especially for you! 

PhD in Bulgaria

In Bulgaria, a specialization or PhD will give you high qualification while you only have to pay low tuition fees. Inter HECS will help you find the best postgraduate specialty in Bulgaria. Take into consideration the fact that students must have substantial knowledge in Bulgarian language or if they don’t, they are advised to take a 9-month preparatory course that will prepare the candidate to B2 level (EU framework) and it is conducted usually at the University from where they graduated. It is necessary to have an understanding of the local language in order to communicate effectively with the patients that are treated in hospitals. The Medical specialization training take place at the Medical University Hospitals or affiliated clinics. It includes practical training at a full-time position in the chosen specialty. In Bulgaria, students have one month to apply after in January positions are announced. As part of our services, Inter HECS will help you throughout your application process with necessary documentation, translation and legalization of your application documents.

Recognizing a diploma in Bulgaria

If you have graduated from a country outside of the European Union, but you wish to practice in a EU country, you should follow a number of steps to get your diploma recognized. In case you become our client, we will guide you through the procedures and deal with your case according to your specific needs.

In order to achieve the recognition of your diploma, you should register at the respective Medical or Dental Councils. To do that, you have two basic options. The first is to pass exams in the non-recognized subjects and the licensed state exams and then, get the degree recognized based on syllabus, ECTS, etc. The second possibility is to be admitted as a transfer student in the 5th or 6th year in a Bulgarian university. This option is better for you, because achieving a Bulgarian degree enables you to practice anywhere in the EU.

Don’t hesitate to contact an Inter HECS representative and we will give you further information regarding your diploma and anything else you might need!
