I have been going through the medical doorway prep materials. About 200 questions on there. Some A/S level some A2 I feel.

Hey, I'm thinking of applying to Europe as a back up, so should I apply to Sofia or Charles? Which is, for lack of a better word, better? And Is there anything I should know or look into before applying? What about language barriers?

Charles is one of the best universities in the world and has been around since the 1300s. There really is no comparison between these two universities. Charles is in the world's top 1.5 percent of unis and Sofia doesn't even feature in these rankings.

It is like Oxford but instead of colleges they have faculties. First is the oldest,15th oldest medical school in the world.

I am applying for 1st faculty and have the exam in London on 23rd April.

Good luck, I am on the exams for First faculty, Masaryk and Palacky. Hope to get a choice so here is hoping. Thankfully the exams are in London so don't have to go to and from Czech three times!

Thanks, what is the deadline for application, if you don't mind?
I hope it's not too late. I couldn't seem to find it.

Don't know. Drop them an e-mail and they should get back to you. If there is space on the exams I don't think it will be a problem.

Heya I'm a first year student going to second year that studies at the Uni. I came through SME and although the experience is different to UK Universities in terms of structure etc ( we learn more subjects) it's still such a good experience, about 80% of the people in my year are British students and my first year was great! I've definitely met long lasting friends, most of the time I forgot I'm abroad. You'll meet lots of people who have come through various companies so when you start everyone's on the same playing feild ( there's no advantage). Let me know if you have any other questions, I'm happy to help (:

Hey! I'm about to apply for Medicine at Sofia University through MLS (medical life studies)... I was wondering what is the living like out there? Accommodation etc... Is it all pretty far? Sofia University have offered to give a 5 year course instead of 6 due to my Biomedical Science degree but i dont think im gonna take it as I only studied anatomy in first year and never done bulgarian and latin before lol! So better off starting from first year I think!! How is the living there and studying out of the UK?

Hey guys,

I'm a second year Sofia MU student having come to Sofia via SME last year.

Overall, if you come in with an open mind and understand that some things are done differently you can have a great time! The city is a blast and there is a wonderful mix of students from all over and the medical content really is the same as what those all over the world do!

If anybody has any specific questions feel free to ask.

Hey, good luck with all the application stuff, there's sometimes a lot of bureaucracy to get through but once it's all sorted it is worth it!

I'm just headed into second year now and I've found living out there pretty great, I didn't go with much in the way of expectations but the city is pretty lovely, especially in the center! Accommodation doesn't have to be far, most live within a 30 min walk of the uni/center. People generally share with one other in private accommodation costing anywhere from 250 euros to 400 euros per month (rent is always worked out in euros, not lev, the lev is tied to the euro so the exchange rate is always 1 euro = 1.95 lev).

If you're willing to spend a little more there are a number of guys who live right in the central boulevard, but given taxi's + public transport are cheap (especially taxi's), it generally works out better to live a little further out and use taxi's/public transport where needed!

My recommendation for first year would be to tell the estate agent (who I'm sure your agency will set you up with) that you want to be close to the uni and try to get a short term let, that way if you don't like it you can move about without too much difficulty

Hello, i would be going to sofia to study medicine in english. i have few questions .... where is the faculty ..is it zdrave or dvd academic ivan ..also, what stations of bus/tram ...is the nearest and what number of bus/trams.. I heard it snows for 2 months during winter, how do you travel to uni,and in times of snow,what is the best reliable method of travel..taxi/bus/tram.. what areas /roads would you recommend to live. I don't like too much traffic noise... Lastly, it might seem trivial, but i saw images online of stray dogs, is it problem to pedestrians? do some streets have less than others? how about ul. bylaw cherkva , skobelev,stefan sarafov,ul nivasha areas ? are there any indian grocery store?
Thanks so much
