STEP 1.

Read carefully the admission criteria, requirements and see if you meet them (you could also contact us by e-mail for assessment of your eligibility); If yes, you could then proceed with step 2.

For applicants from the UK, it is required to have 3 A-level subjects, as it is recommendable two of them to be Biology and Chemistry. Where A-levels have a separately graded practical component, this is required and must be passed.

We do not consider BTEC and Foundation programmes.

If you are a German applicant, please refer to the Infoblatt & Häufige Fragen

Science subject/natural sciences will not be sufficient for application purposes and considered as an alternative to Biology and Chemistry subjects unless the cases where the high school law in the relevant country does stipulate the obligatory training in Biology and Chemistry in one subject.

Applicants who have E grades /for German applicants "mangelhaft" grade/ in any of the two mandatory high school subjects – Biology and Chemistry will not be allowed to take the Entry tests & take part in the selection process.

STEP 2.

Choose an Entry test date, register for it from here  http://e-application.mu-varna.bg, prepare & sit the Entry tests.
