Embracing European Opportunities: The EUC's Visit to the British School of Sofia

08 Mar 2024

On 08.03.2024, the British School of Sofia hosted an inspiring event that offered our IGCSE and IB students a panoramic view of higher education possibilities across Europe. The European Universities Consortium (EUC), an esteemed coalition of seven universities renowned for their English-speaking undergraduate programs, graced our institution with their presence, illuminating pathways to academic and professional excellence.

Representatives from each university shared insights into their unique bachelor's degree programs, shedding light on a spectrum of disciplines from Law and Business Management to Engineering and Architecture. These interactions were not merely informative but were designed to ignite our students' aspirations for higher education in venerable European institutions.

The visiting universities from the EUC included:

  • Bocconi University, situated in the vibrant city of Milan, Italy, renowned for its cutting-edge programs in business and law.
  • Brussels School of Governance, an institution that stands at the crossroads of Europe in Brussels, Belgium, offering a deep dive into international relations and political science.
  • Constructor University, with its campuses in Bremen, Germany, and Schaffhausen, Switzerland, providing a robust foundation in engineering and technology.
  • IE University, based in Madrid, Spain, celebrated for its innovative approach to education and a broad spectrum of programs including hospitality management.
  • EHL Business School, with its roots in Lausanne, Switzerland, and an outreach in Singapore, offering premier education in hospitality and business management.
  • Modul University, Vienna, Austria's gem, known for its focus on sustainability and tourism, alongside traditional and emerging disciplines.

This visit was more than a presentation; it was a dialogue, an exchange of dreams and possibilities. Our students were encouraged to envision their future in a European context, exploring how these international education opportunities could propel them toward successful, fulfilling careers. They engaged in meaningful conversations, inquired about summer camps, and learned about open days, delving into the essence of each university's offerings.

The significance of this event extends beyond the immediate excitement; it plants the seeds of curiosity and ambition in our young scholars. By considering Europe as their educational haven, they open doors to diverse cultures, innovative learning environments, and global networks that can profoundly influence their future career trajectories.

We, at the British School of Sofia, are immensely proud to facilitate such pivotal encounters, recognizing the importance of exposing our students to a world of opportunities. As our learners ponder over their higher education choices, the EUC's visit has undoubtedly broadened their horizons, empowering them to make informed decisions that align with their aspirations and potential.

In the spirit of academic excellence and global connectivity, we look forward to nurturing these emerging partnerships and witnessing the bright futures our students will undoubtedly carve out for themselves in Europe and beyond.
