VUM connections with the UK

VUM UK

We are happy to inform you that the accreditation of Varna University of Management has been approved once again by the Accreditation Committee of the British Accreditation Council. The Accreditation Committee visited VUM in October 2017 to evaluate all our ongoing activities and procedures. The accreditation is recognized internationally and assures the British standards of higher education are implemented in our institution.

Our strategic partnership with Cardiff Metropolitan University – the partnership thanks to which students can study full-time at Varna University of Management, in Bulgaria and upon successful completion of studies, they are eligible to obtain two degrees – a Bulgarian one from VUM and a British one from Cardiff Met. We are very honored to be a trusted partner and to be able to offer such a great opportunity to our students. You can read more about our partnership with Cardiff Met here.

Additionally, VUM has a partnership with another British University – University College Birmingham (UCB). UCB offers programmes in the field of Business and Marketing, Hospitality Management, Recreation and others. It is one of the leading colleges of tourism and hospitality in Great Britain. Varna University of Management has an Erasmus+ partnership with UCB, so all our students are welcome to take advantage of it.

Speaking about Erasmus+ programme – we have partnership with a total of 4 universities, located in the United Kingdom – University of Portsmouth, University College Birmingham, Cardiff Metropolitan University, University of Salford. The Erasmus+ Programme gives a great opportunity for spending a semester or a year in the partner university, taking advantage of the financial support offered by the programme.
