Hear Medicine Students’ Stories About Study & Life at PMU Bulgaria

Esa, First-year dental student, Plovdiv Medical University.

How did you find out about Studying Medicine in Georgia?

A friend recommended SME to Esa and he went home to do a bit of research about it. After his research, he thought everything looked good on the website so he called them and within an hour got a response and that’s how he got in touch with SME team.

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

The relocation manager contacted Esa in mid-September and told him all about his relocation process. The SME team was helpful at every step of relocating.

How has SME helped you achieve your academic dream?

According to Esa, “My advice is just to do it. Get on a plane, come over here and follow your dreams.” SME fulfilled his dream and he wants everyone who wants to study medicine to fulfil theirs too.


Florence, First-year medical student, Plovdiv Medical University.

What was the Application like?

The application process for Florence was very smooth and before she knew it, she had her acceptance letter mailed to her which made her very happy.

How did the Applications team help you?

Florence states, “The application process was very smooth. Before I knew it, I had my Acceptance Letter to study Medicine in Plovdiv.” She was really happy with how the team was there to support her at every step of the process. Before she even left the UK, she was provided with an online portal where she had an access to all the information, which she needed for the future.

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

Florence was extremely pleased with the confirmation of flights. She was very happy to not have to worry about booking the right flights. SME also arranged for her to meet the city manager at the hotel, which was also a huge relief in a 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. The next day, she was escorted to the university for a three-hour registration process. They also helped her in renting an apartment.


Sumayah, First-year medical student, Plovdiv Medical University.

What was the Application like?

After much consideration, she decided to contact SME and she feels so happy that she did it. SME made things so much easier for her as she didn’t have to do much because the team did it all for her. Even though she was late on the course, she still got into medical school at Plovdiv because of SME and she feels very grateful to SME for that.

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

The whole team was always available to help her out with moving to Bulgaria. They gave flight information so she could book her flight together with other students. She was escorted from the airport to the hotel where she stayed for two days and was given a briefing about what to expect in near future, how to obtain sim cards and open bank accounts. SME team also helped her find accommodation, which was a huge relief. The senior students also helped a lot in getting all juniors set up.

How has SME helped you achieve your academic dream?

Sumayah says that SME not only helps you to get admission but is there with you throughout your degree. She said, “The support here in Bulgaria is on stand-by if you need them throughout the whole 6 years.” They are there for all students for any kind of emergencies and health issues.
