About the programme

The Ph.D. Program in Philosophy from Sofia University St.Kliment Ohridski, besides studies in residence, offers an opportunity for extramural studies (extramural studies is a Bulgarian version of distance learning).

This program secures guidelines by faculty and leaves enough room for student’s own preferences. The degree is recognized worldwide including the EU/EEA and Switzerland, the US, Canada, Russia, Turkey, China, Indian Sub-Continent, Latin America, and the Middle East.

Cultural Life and Recreation

Being the capital of Bulgaria, Sofia features a rich cultural life. In most of the cinemas, English language films can be seen. There is a number of concert halls, dozens of art galleries, and many national and international cultural centers. Streets of Sofia are full of cozy cafés and high quality inexpensive restaurants offering Bulgarian, European, and international cuisine. Sofia is a favorable place for summer and winter sports including skiing in the nearby mountain of Vitosha.

As an international MD student at UniSR, I was able to overcome my language and cultural barriers as well as to be involved in many extracurricular and social activities, which helped me develop my communication skills and personality. Going to UniSR is the best decision I ever made since it allowed me to be part of major health care and medical research.
