Diversity

"The campus is like a small town with people of about 50 nationalities, each doing something small for others and the community as a whole." - Lyubomir Yanchev, student

We take diversity seriously at AUBG: our unique position as a global university in one of Europe’s most ancient civilizations gives us a point of view you won’t find elsewhere.

Back in 1991, it all started with one international student from Norway – Kasra Mottahedeh. Nowadays, AUBG is home to some of the brightest students from over 35 countries.

As technology continues to make the world of work more connected, there’s never been a better time to make broadening your horizons a top priority. It’s well known that diverse teams perform better, and at AUBG, our Diversity Program will give you the edge.

Our Diversity Program kicks off right in Orientation week with a half-day workshop. After that, our dedicated Diversity Team (made up of a representative cross-section of students, staff, and administrators, all of whom get special training) leads many fun and varied events throughout the year to inspire and encourage you to get involved. Some examples are International Week and Taste Fest.

Diverse Community

AUBG educates students to support each other no matter of their differences.

  • Nationalities from six continents - students, professors, and staff all make up for the diversity on campus. More than 50% of the AUBG student body and faculty is coming from countries different than Bulgaria.

  • The University makes every effort to be accommodating to students who need additional assistance and support for their education. Accommodations for learning disabilities and other concerns have been made in past years and we will be glad to work with students and help them succeed.

  • AUBG promotes gender equality and supports efforts to tackle the gender gap.

  • At AUBG we respect people of all religions and beliefs.
