International students who want to study in Bulgaria should note that tuition fee in Bulgaria is one of the cheapest in Europe. Both international students and europeans can study in Bulgarian Universities at reduced cost while also benefiting from Bulgarian scholarships. To benefit from Bulgarian scholarships, you will be required to learn and speak Bulgarian and then sit for and pass a language admission exam along with Bulgarian Students. Please be aware that the tuition fee for programs in Bulgarian language is slightly cheaper than the cost for programs in English.
The tuition fees in Bulgarian universities would vary depending on the university, course, language of instruction, undergraduate or graduate program etc.
Tuition fee for European students:
European students can study in either (Bulgaria) or in an international language (English, French, or Germany) depending of the programs available. European students who like to reduce cost of studying in Bulgaria can decide to study in Bulgarian language and take full advantage of Bulgarian scholarships.
Tuition fee for non-EU students:
International students can only apply to study in Bulgaria as tuition paying students. They must pay the full academic tuition fee, which is actually paid in 2 times per academic year: That is half before applying for a student visa and the remaining amount before the beginning of the second semester. As was said earlier, it is slightly cheaper to study in Bulgarian language than in an international language!
