Chris, First-year medical student, Trakia University.

How did you find out about Studying Medicine in Georgia?

Chris started his career as a teacher and found his interest in healthcare so he started volunteering at the Red Cross as an ambulance technician. Working there, he decided to become a doctor and thus talked about it with his friends and family. One of his friends who was a doctor told him to apply in Europe because the application process was much easier and quicker than in the UK and that’s how he found out about SME.

How did the Applications team help you?

Chris gave SME team a call and was told about all the documents, which were required. He gathered them and within days got his admission call from SME team. He states it was a very straightforward process. The team was always there to guide him and fill him in and answer all his queries. Within a week of submission of his documents, Chris was flying to Bulgaria as he got admission to one of the Medical schools there.

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

Chris states that the SME team was so efficient and professional that he was out of the airport within twenty minutes of his arrival. He was taken to the hotel where he got a presentation along with other students, which really helped him understand the dynamics of how these couples of next years are going to turn out. He was so happy with the fact that he had a sim card and bank account opened within a couple of hours of landing in Bulgaria.

How has SME helped you achieve your academic dream?

According to Chris, “Just pick up the phone and talk to SME. You’ve only got one life and opportunities like this don’t come very often!” SME helped him achieve his dream and he is living it every day. Chris also states that rather than procrastinating about life in your 30’s, just contact SME.
