The air at Varna University of Management (VUM) is buzzing with excitement once again as we extend a warm welcome to a group of mobility students. The students hail from countries like Armenia, Moldova, Malaysia, Philippines, France, Spain, and Italy, and are embarking on a transformative academic journey at our vibrant Varna Campus.

The anticipation and excitement of starting a new chapter in a foreign land are emotions that resonate deeply with international students. VUM understands the significance of this transition, and with open arms, we aim to create an environment that fosters growth, learning, and meaningful connections.

The induction session, meticulously organized by the Erasmus+ Department, kicked off with a cordial reception by our dedicated International Cooperation Department. Smiles and a genuine sense of belonging set the tone for the semester abroad, ensuring that our new students feel embraced and valued from the start.

Academic success is a priority at VUM, and the welcome event included a crucial introduction to academic rules. Representatives from the Student Affairs Department guided the newcomers through these essential aspects, laying the foundation for a smooth and successful learning experience during their time at VUM.

Following the informative session, our students had the pleasure of engaging with the Student Welfare Coordinator. This pivotal role provides continuous support and assistance to international students throughout their academic journey. Valuable insights about life on and off campus were shared, contributing to a sense of ease and familiarity in their new surroundings.

As the day unfolded, the event transitioned into a more interactive and enjoyable experience. A lively quiz tested the students’ knowledge about Bulgaria, with exciting prizes adding an extra element of fun to the proceedings.

To conclude this memorable welcome event, everyone gathered at CreATE by CAI – the training restaurant of the Culinary Arts Institute. Sharing a meal together is a wonderful way to foster connections and build a sense of community. It provided an opportunity for students from diverse backgrounds to bond over delicious food, creating lasting memories.

The Varna Campus welcome event goes beyond being a simple introduction; it is a warm embrace extended to international students who have chosen VUM for their educational journey. It underscores the university’s commitment to ensuring that each student’s experience is not only academically enriching but also personally fulfilling. We eagerly anticipate witnessing their growth and success during their time here at Varna University of Management.
