We at AUBG say No to War! Our community has always been standing up for the idea to grow in a multinational and multicultural environment. AUBG is proud to educate students from across the region in a spirit of mutual respect and understanding, tolerance, cooperation and peace.
In these challenging times, our community gathered once again to show support for those affected by the war.
The U.S. Embassy in Sofia and America for Bulgaria Foundation (ABF) are joining efforts with the American Chamber of Commerce in Bulgaria (AmCham), Nu Boyana Film Studios, the American University in Bulgaria (AUBG), the American College of Sofia (ACS), Muzeiko, and other organizations, to assist people displaced from Ukraine.

AUBG opens its doors for university students and professors
The university’s doors are open for any displaced Ukrainian university students who are able to continue their studies in English, seeking or having found refuge in Bulgaria due to the war in Ukraine. AUBG also welcomes refugee scholars and professors within the extent of its institutional capacity. Within its capacity, the university will provide placement and support for such scholars.
English language Instructions for those in need
For those who need help with their English skills, AUBG can provide English instruction through its English Language Institute in Blagoevgrad upon availability.
Current Ukrainian and Russian AUBG students are providing free translation services, cultural support and other support as need arises to displaced Ukrainians. AUBG student residence halls will also be available after May 22nd, for temporary accommodation of Ukrainian refugees in need.
