Did you know that Bulgaria has been one of UK’s fastest growing international markets for higher education in recent years? Annually some 1,500 Bulgarian students start their undergraduate studies making a total of about 6,500 Bulgarians studying across all years and levels.

Bulgarian students are highly appreciated academically too. One Russell Group university professor went on quote that their 100 Bulgarian students of engineering were so good the university wanted at least as many more each year.

Some of those graduates will return to Bulgaria – we have witnessed rapid increase in the number of UK diplomas verified in Bulgaria – for work or for further studies.

Do you want to be part of the motivation of young Bulgarians to choose the best education which will bring them the best career choices for the future?

Тhe British Council аre organising the seventh annual Study UK exhibition in Sofia and this year BBBA joins as a partner. The exhibition will bring together university representatives from UK higher education institutions and will give Bulgarian students the opportunity to speak directly with sector representatives and ask the questions of interest to them. This year’s Study UK exhibition will take place in Sofia, on 20 October, at Sofia Hotel Balkan, between 11:00 – 17:00h. Currently confirmed are 11 UK universities, 4 of which are representatives of the prestigious Russell Group.

Bulgaria is one of the top 10 EU countries by number of students in the UK which presents an excellent opportunity for business in Bulgaria to attract UK alumni looking to return and utilise the expertise.
