7,104 Students Applied to Sofia University

Bulgaria’s oldest institution for higher education, Sofia University, received 7,104 student candidacies for the next year. Here are the most popular degree choices of Bulgaria's students.

As usual, the most popular field for higher education among the students was psychology. The second place is taken by “Communicative Management,” which is a new SU program that starts in the next school year. Third place is taken by “Public Administration” followed by “Computer Sciences”, “English Philology”, “Software Engineering”, “Sociology”, “Bulgarian Philology”, “Information Systems”, and “Information Technology.”

The number of students that applied isn’t much higher than last year when Sofia University was left with hundreds of vacant spots. There are many reasons for this, one of which is the fall of Bulgaria’s population. The country’s number is expected to fall under 7 million, less than the population numbers during 1946, a year after the Second World War.
