Medicine: The medical studies at the Medical University Pleven are based on the principle of “Problem-based Learning”. This way, the real situations that the future doctors will find in the daily praxis are dealt with, not only the theoretical content. The courses are organised in a block system. This approach guarantees a high success rate in the degree. The individual exams are not taken at the same time in blocks, they are distributed throughout the year.
