Varna Free University launches joint educational projects with top universities from Sweden and Norway

    Varna Free University "Chernorizets Hrabar" launches two new educational projects. They are the result of the joint work with two of the elite universities in Europe - BI Norwegian Business School and the Swedish Defence University (SEDU).



    BI Norwegian Business School is one of the largest universities in Norway that offers training in economics and administration. The only Norwegian University with a triple international accreditation has four campuses: Oslo, Bergen, Trondheim and Stavanger. BI Norwegian Business School is in the top rankings of the Financial Times for the past three years.

    The Swedish Defence University (SEDU) started its activity in 1818 and trains students for military and civilian leadership positions at national and international level. The university offers programs in the fields of security, military science and defence.

    Currently, several new Bulgarian-Norwegian Bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree programs in management, marketing and finance are being developed. The training is envisaged to be entirely in English, as in the fourth year of their students will have the opportunity to study in Norway. An international team of lecturers and experts will be established for the purposes of the program and students will be awarded two diplomas.



    Next year, the first Swedish students will arrive at Varna Free University. They will attend

short-term certification training in security, defence and political science. Master classes conducted by lecturers and experts from the Swedish Defence University with students from Varna Free University are planned.

    The aim of the new educational projects is to create more learning opportunities for Bulgarian students to combine their studies at Varna Free University with knowledge and practical skills acquired by working with lecturers from prestigious foreign universities.
