Why did you choose to go to med school in Bulgaria?
Why didn't you stay in Bulgaria to work?
Talking with your colleagues, is there much of a difference between UK and Bulgarian Med School?

Long story short, I didn’t get a place in the UK.
I live in the UK and my family’s based here too so I only went there to study - the course is entirely taught in English but you do need to learn at least a little bit of the language. They teach you that during med school, but yeah even with this my Bulgarian wasn't a 100% and I’d much rather practice medicine in English too lol
There are differences yes, but not so much. In general the principle is the same, just slightly different methods or different rules & policies which vary from hospital to hospital. Its all a learning process but so far so good 😅

Hi!! I'm just finishing my first year at Plovdiv and I am also from the UK.

Do you see a difference between yourself and UK graduates?
Was it hard to get a job?
Did you do F1 or did you go straight to F2 and why?

Thank you so much!!

Do you recommend doing an under-grad in UK before going abroad?

Thanks for this
