Students’ application terms

Each faculty determines the eligible courses for MU-Sofia students and PhD students, in all forms of study. Students retain their right to a scholarship at MU-Sofia during the period abroad, but must pay their semester fee. MU-Sofia recognizes academic stays and exams taken abroad if they correspond to the study programs at our university. Before the implementation of the mobility, it is necessary that MU-Sofia has signed an inter-institutional agreement with the host university or the partner organization from the country under the program

OLS (Online Language Support)

At the end of the mobility period, students will be reassessed to check their progress in learning the primary foreign language. The results will be announced to the student as well. The duration of the study mobility is between 2 and 12 months. The minimum success overall mark of the student until the application must be a minimum of Good 4.00.
