Mustafa, First year Dental Student, Plovdiv Medical University

How did you find out about Studying Medicine in Bulgaria?

After messing up some grades in his A-levels, Mustafa was disheartened and thought he would never be able to get into a medical school in UK. So he started searching online and came across SME. He contacted the agents and within a few weeks got admission in Plovdiv.

What was the relocation support for moving to study abroad in Europe like?

One thing which Mustafa feared was that he might face racism as he would be a minority and there would be only Bulgarians living there but he was ecstatic to find out that all students were from different backgrounds and he also made many new friends, which helped him a lot in getting settled.

What was it like arriving to your new city and getting set up?

Relocation is a tough thing but SME made it very efficient and easy for Mustafa. According to Mustafa, “Before I came to Bulgaria I thought I was going to be a minority. But when I came here there were people from many backgrounds, I had no problem fitting in”. Also, SME team was there to help him at each and every step.

Faryal, First year Medicine Student, Plovdiv Medical University

What was the Application like?

though Faryal applied very late for admissions, but SME team took care of all her documentation and before she even knew it, she was standing with admission letter in her hands. She changed her mind when she attended SME conference and saw the massive scope of medicine and directly contacted the team that she wanted to study medicine in Europe. She put all her trust in SME and has never regretted that decision.

How did the Applications team help you?

SME team was so efficient and guaranteed the required position at University, as they are the legal representatives of this university. Due to their hard work, she received her admission letter within two weeks.

What was it like arriving to your new city and getting set up?

SME arranged for her to meet the city manager at the hotel, which was also a huge relief in new city. In the pre-booked hotel, she had a briefing about what to expect in near future. She also got a sim card and bank account opened on the same day, which made her feel connected to her family and friends. Next day, she was escorted to the university for a three hour registration process. SME also helped in finding a nice accommodation.

How has SME helped you achieve your academic dream?

SME has played a vital role in fulfilling Faryal’s dream of pursuing Medicine. She stated, “Don’t hesitate, don’t wait around. If you know you’ve got what it takes to study Medicine or Dentistry, go for it!”

Irfaan, First year Medical Student, Plovdiv Medical University

What was the Application like?

Irfaan says that SME helped him a lot throughout the process. He states, “After I did my documents I sent them to the office in London and, within four weeks, I got my Acceptance Letter to the University of Plovdiv.”

How did the Applications team help you?

He contacted SME and the team took care of all documentation including notarizing and submitting application forms and within four weeks, Irfaan had received his acceptance letter.
