General Information on Student Loans for Bulgarian Universities
Bulgarian financial institutions do not currently offer student loans, although the information below on loans that previously were available could be helpful to anyone looking to study in Bulgaria.
Student loans are provided in Bulgaria’s national currency, the Lev (BGN) and were mostly available solely through local financial institutions who had signed an agreement with the academic institution of your choosing. The decision on making loans available rests with local banks, so Study Medicine Europe carries zero liability on the approval or non-approval of student loans.
Students are not required to repay loans while they are in full-time study and they can avail of a grace period upon conclusion of their studies before they need to begin repaying the loan. Repayments usually involve an annual fixed rate and students who avail of loans are not required to pay any fees, commissions or expenses pertaining to the granting and management of these loans.
The grace period lasts from the end of the loan agreement to the completion of the student’s final state examination or thesis, as per the repayment plan agreed by all parties in the loan agreement. The full loan amount is usually repaid in monthly instalments which begin from the expiry of the grace period. Loan repayments are typically deferred upon enrolling in full-time training for subsequent educational qualifications or scientific degrees, and during each subsequent academic year.
