More than a hundred students from the United Kingdom were admitted to the Medical University in the Bulgarian city of Pleven.

The students will begin their six-year education programme which is taught in English in several days.

On Sunday the rector of the university will greet the new students at a special welcome event featuring a performance of the city's folklore ensemble.

From the beginning of February, the foreign students will join the two-week adaptation programme, the Bulgarian National Radio informs.

The adaptation includes meetings and talks with representatives of the institutions in the city as well as information tours in the university and library as well as visits of cultural-historical sites.
