“The ranking system gives us policies and a future. I am proud that the Medical University of Sofia for another year is the leading University of medical sciences”. This was said in his thank-you speech yesterday in the service of the Academy Awards, the Rector Prof. Dr. Viktor Zlatkov. The ceremony took place in Gallery Oborishte 5 in the capital.

Since 2011, our university has consistently held first place in all five areas. We are grateful for the ranking that the ranking system gives us not only for achievements but also for quality. It is important for students to see the point in their further development and not to forget that “Salus aegroti suprema lex!” – People’s health must be the supreme law!

The ceremony was opened with a speech by Education Minister Krasimir Valchev, who said the ranking system had changed the incentives and policies of universities. “In the coming years, no university will have enough faculty to offer quality education. This can only be done if they are connected in networks – national and mostly European“, added Minister Valchev.

Prof. Dr. Zlatkov received the award from Sofia Mayor Mrs. Yordanka Fandakova. She thanked all those involved in education in the capital because they are at the heart of the city’s success. “Here are the best universities and creative young people,” said Mrs. Fandakova.
