Bachelor degree at BFU

Only students who successfully pass the entrance exams are admitted to bachelor's programs.

BFU campus

The city campus of BFU provides students with countless opportunities for work and recreation — from sitting in a coffee shop with a laptop to internships at large companies. Burgas has a well developed entertainment infrastructure, but the rhythm of the big city can be distracting for some students. The educational institution has its own library. Here, students do their homework or just have a good time reading an interesting book. BFU accepts students for international exchange programs. This is a great opportunity to gain experience in intercultural communication for both international and local students.
