Erasmus+ programme 2014/2021


Erasmus Programme


Stefani Kaldaramova, PhD

The Erasmus+ exchange programme allows international students currently studying at a European university to spend a semester or a year with us. These exchanges are based around subject area agreements.

To study at New Bulgarian University /NBU/ as an exchange student, your university needs to have an inter-institutional agreement with NBU. As most Erasmus + agreements are faculty-specific, please get in touch with the international office at your home university or faculty to learn more about your opportunities. At NBU, the Erasmus office are in charge of the admission procedures for incoming exchange students. They will be able to provide you with more information.


The application package includes the following documents:

  • Application form
  • Transcript of records - Part of the application package is the Transcript of Records. This document could be obtained from the administrative body at your home university. The academic transcript should include all courses followed by the student, as well as information about acquired marks and credits.
  • Proof of language proficiency - Normally we require the level of language competence to be at least B1, according to the Common European Frame of Reference (CEFR). Internationally recognized certificates (IELTS, TOEFL, Cambridge certificates) are accepted, as well as formal documents certifying knowledge in a foreign language (English, French) issued after an assessment at the home university.  All students are expected to have language proficiency at the level mentioned above.
  • Nomination letter - All Erasmus students must be nominated by their home university

Remember that we cannot fully consider your application until we have received all your supporting documents. There is no need for you to send us hard copies of anything once you have submitted your application to the following email -

You should choose courses that relate to the subject area exchange you are coming under. For example, if your university has an agreement with History, your course choices should primarily be chosen from this subject area. It may sometimes be possible to select courses outside of your subject area, although this will have to be approved by your Erasmus+ coordinator at your home university.

Furthermore, check with your home university as to whether they have any requirements you have to meet in order to be eligible to study abroad.

Should the student wishing to participate in the Erasmus + exchange program come from a country outside the EU, they would need to inform themselves about the immigration procedures in case a visa is required.
