Student Relocation to Varna Medical University Successfully Completed
Students that applied for Varna MU relocated on September 27th to Bulgaria to begin their quest in becoming medical doctors and dentists.
SME was at the airport to receive them and guide them to the Orbita Hotel where their rooms were booked in advance. Once the students had all settled in, they were invited to one of the hotel’s conference rooms where a briefing was held regarding the agenda for the following days. The students were introduced to the SME local team who are there to support them for the entire 6 years that they will be in Varna. Real estate agents were there to discuss individual requirements for accommodation and students were given the option to choose one of two unparalleled SIM card packages exclusive to SME students. The following day, students were escorted to the university to register which was completed in an expeditious manner. They were given a tour of the campus to familiarize them to their new surroundings. After registration they were taken to a local bank to open an account and a week later on to the local authorities to obtain a Bulgarian ID card.
Relocating to a new country can be quite difficult when you don’t know anyone. To combat this, SME organized a networking event on Saturday, October 6th, to help students get to know each other. Students from previous years enlightened the new students with study tips and relevant information. Refreshments were offered and all had a great time.
We would like to wish all the students the best of luck and to congratulate them in taking the steps to fulfill their dreams.
