2019 Student Stories Studying @ Sofia Medical University
In the video, students from Sofia Medical University share their experiences with registering through SME and tell you what it’s like to change their path in life and relocate to study medicine abroad at one of the world’s established university in Bulgaria.
At SME, we want to connect with students on a deeper level and therefore we understand the importance of studying abroad. However, we also understand how daunting the experience may be leaving one’s comfort zone to pursue a dream, so we work hard to ensure that this is a smooth transition. Students from all over the world apply through SME to study medicine or dentistry at Sofia Medical University and we were there to assist and support throughout the relocation process with all the necessary information for everyone’s arrival in Bulgaria.
Upon a safe arrival at the airport, students were greeted by the country manager and were taken to their temporary accommodation at the respective hotel. Once all students were settled in, a briefing was held outlining the schedule and the activities for the week. Students were assisted with completing all the necessary paperwork to open a bank account, receive a new SIM card, apply for their residence permit, get their student ID cards and most importantly register at the university. Students were assisted with finalizing all necessary tasks, including securing their private accommodations and a tour of the picturesque city of Sofia was enjoyed.
At the end of a busy week, the team at SME made sure that students were ready to start their new studies. SME also hosted a group dinner party for everyone to wish them all the very best in their new endeavors.
SME promises to continue supporting its students throughout their years of study until completion and graduation. SME will also assist in their transition back home, including registering with the UK or US Medical Council and preparation of their professional CVs.
