Over the last 4 years, we have received new institutional accreditation with a 9.61 grade. The University continues to occupy the first place in most of the professional fields in the National Grading System of Higher Education. This was stated by the rector of Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski" Prof. Anastas Gerdzhikov.

The rector also announced that the university retains its position in the university's world ranking charts.

"It is the only Bulgarian university in the top 1000 in the world rankings. This means that Sofia University is in the top 4% of world universities and in the top 2% in some areas," he said.

We continue to open new specialties and update our curricula annually. Sofia University offers education in 119 bachelor's degree programs, as well as in over 400 master's programs.
