At its regular meeting on Wednesday, the Bulgarian government proposed to parliament to adopt a decision on the establishment of a pharmacy faculty at the Medical University in the city of Pleven.

The planned capacity of the faculty is 300 students, the government’s press service informs.

The establishment of the faculty has been proposed by the management of the university on the basis of a positive assessment by the National Evaluation and Accreditation Agency.

The university has built a new campus for the faculty, with the funds provided under the “Growth and sustainable development of the regions” investment programme.

The university has also secured enough habilitated and non-habilitated lecturers with the necessary qualification and professional experience.

The establishment of the faculty is in line with the national and regional strategic goals for the development of healthcare and pharmacy care.

The faculty will also supply cadres needed for the development of the pharmacy industry in the northwestern and north central regions of Bulgaria.

You're making me worried you are an expat kipper Jack... Bulgaria's education system is typical of continental Europe, 30 weeks of education, early starts early finish, some are staggered if teaching supplies aren't adequate. In Germany it appears children are permanently on holiday as they start the day at 7am and finish not long after midday, better for social lives and also improves the possibility of extra curricular education. Bulgaria hasn't a poor education system, it is funding and teacher training that is under funded that creates a few percentage points dropped in services here or there. Bulgarian education has traditionally been high and still produces the kinds of skilled employees for an advancing economy.

I dont know what it was like here 25 years ago, but now it seems that the kids are off school for at least 6 months of the year on one holiday or another - and only spend half a day in school when they are in attendance. If my perception is correct it just isnt possible for students to prepare to be the kind of professionals this country needs in order to propel it forward. And that apparent hole in the mix is just what the EU needs to insist that Bulgaria must take in all those 'doctors, dentists and engineers' battering down our border fences and attacking women and children throughout Europe

Bulgaria should invest heavily in Innovation, science and technology!
Higher and better education is crucial for the future prosperity of the country and the region!
The literacy and education levels gradually declined significantly for the last 25 years and the new generation of Bulgarians have high level of illiteracy and even poor knowledge of the Bulgarian language! Absolutely unacceptable!
Plenty of inappropriate external influence is affecting the education of the young Bulgarian population presently like the US for example which happens to be down to around 30th place internationally in math and science!
For best results Bulgaria should align its education system with the leaders of Europe and Asia.
