Iris Ann Jose From Ernakulam, Kerala,India
Applying for MBBS in India is very difficult, the competition is extremely high and only a very few places are available in proportion to the population… However, when I saw the opportunity to study it in Europe, I was immediately drawn towards it. I applied through Vistamed, who were experienced in the field of recruiting students from India. They helped me throughout all the stages and I was aware of the different requirements of the embassies involved. Even when I arrived in Varna, their help was continuous, they helped me with applying for the Bulgarian ID (in order to extend my visa). They also supported me by arranging insurance, police clearance certificates, alongside all the help I received with taking phone connection, Accommodation etc.. I’m happy I chose them and would recommend them to Indian students wanting to apply to study in Europe.Alana Sajan From Coventry
I have started studying medicine in 2017 at the Medical University of Varna, Bulgaria, through getting in contact with Dr. Joshy from VistaMed. Moving from my home in Coventry to Varna seemed a very difficult challenge but thankfully I had the full support from VistaMed to help fit into this new environment.
Janet Jincy Moni - Third year student From Cirencester
I think the greatest strength of the University is its staff, as they help as much as they can and try to make learning both interactive and also fun. The method of teaching at lectures, which includes interactive quizzes with the students makes the subjects both interesting and academically stimulating.

The VistaMed and its Director Dr. Joshy Jose were extremely helpful and his agency is so informative and helpful throughout the entire application process. My application was processed quickly and I received an offer within weeks of applying. The service did not end there; VistaMed helped me from find a nice apartment, at a short distance from the University at a very reasonable price. Varna is a beautiful and safe city with good weather.Yathorshan Shanthakumaran - Third year student From Southend

The first year has been fantastic for me, I’ve met a lot of great people and I’m glad to say it already feels like home in Varna in only a few months. VistaMed was excellent as well, they were very straightforward with their pricings and services, and they didn’t have any hidden charges

I came to find out about VistaMed while I was researching on the various agencies that provide similar services, I’d come across many, but I’m glad I chose VistaMed. I’ve been pleased with their services and If I could pick out one thing they stand out on from all other agencies,
Rosmi George - Second year student From Drogheda , Ireland
As a student of Medical university of Varna, which is ranking top in Bulgaria, I highly recommend VistaMed services and its professional and friendly approach. As a first year student, my parents and I didn’t find any hardships to get in the university and the accommodation services were very helpful, I came with my sister and we got the accommodation (two bed room apartment) with only around 3-minute walk to the University for us. Thank you for all your help.
Annet selvin - Second year student From Luton
Dr Joshy Jose and his team (VistaMed) have been really helpful and had a great, fast and reliable service to obtaining admission in Varna University Bulgaria. Without their help, I would have had no idea where to begin with my application to Varna Medical University to study Dentistry and probably would have not been successful. The director of VistaMed helped all students with accommodation in Bulgaria.Mariya Shoy - Second year student From Manchester
I’m from Manchester and I’m a second year Medical Student at MUV. I chose Varna because of it being the highest ranked University for Medicine in Bulgaria, and also because I have friends from third year who told me very positive opinions on Varna and also about Vistamed (through which i applied as a result). Vistamed helped me enormously, their hosting of the entrance exam in London was a great opportunity to meet fellow applicants, also serving as an ideal time to find a roommate. They were very supportive and guided me through the hassle of all the paperwork and found me a nice apartment close to the Medical University. I certainly don’t regret my decision. and I would certainly recommend Vistamed.
Anisha Ann Joseph - Second year student From Evesham
About Varna University and Varna, I like the University, it has hi-tech facilities, and the teachers are good. I really like the city, I’m certain every student here feels the same. Varna isn’t the biggest city in Bulgaria, so places are quite close to each other, lowering the transportation costs, also it’s not crowded, which also helps to make the City safer than other bigger cities in Bulgaria, as we know most of it already. It was my friends that introduced me to VistaMed.
Ashmy Thomas - Second year student From Aberdeen, Scotland
When I first heard about the opportunity to study Medicine abroad, I wasn’t sure what to think, I thought it’d be difficult to settle into a new life, in a new country with a new language etc. However, with the help of Vistamed, I’ve settled in much faster than I expected. One aspect I like about Varna is the Students life. There are a lot of malayalis, and there are various things to do in Varna, especially in the summer as Varna has a beautiful beach, and is a tourist city.
Britto Baby Pereppadan - Second year student From Dublin, Ireland
I’m a second year student from Dublin, Ireland. I applied to study Medicine because it’s something I’ve always wanted to do, however knowing it’s extremely difficult to get a place in Ireland, I looked for alternatives. While searching, I heard about Vistamed, a consultation agency focused on recruiting especially Malayali students to Bulgaria’s highest ranked Medical University – Medical University of Varna. Although I was initially hesitant Since contacting them, they guided me step by step for the entire application process, and made transition into life in Bulgaria very smooth. I am grateful to Dr Joshy and team for all their support, especially for the finding of apartments
Jebin James - Second year student From Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire
Varna is a city I really like it’s not massive, but big enough to have all the facilities you would need. Varna I feel is the place to be in the summer, it has a beach, drawing in many tourists every year. I think the student life here is also very good, there are almost 100 Malayalis here, and I feel there’s a strong sense of family atmosphere among us, and everyone is happy to help each other out. The University is also very good, it has high tech facilities, the teachers speak good English and are willing to help if help is needed. I recommend Vistamed. I think their service were excellent, and have made my transition to a life in Varna much easier.
Rahul Don Bosco From Alappuzha,Kerala, S.India
I’m a first year student from India, I heard about Vistamed through an advertisement on the newspaper, I came in contact with Dr Joshy, who has helped me greatly, He has provided great support in all areas, from paperwork to Visa application and also accommodation. With their help, I made it to Varna Medical University, the highest ranked Medical University in Bulgaria, which is recognised by the MCI (important for me if I'll be practising in India). I would wholeheartedly recommend Vistamed to any student from India thinking of applying to study Medicine in Europe.
Sterin James - Second year student From Manchester, UK
I had been looking at studying Medicine in Bulgaria for some time. A friend recommended VistaMed to me; I contacted them and was pleasantly surprised by how friendly and helpful their response was. Applying to study in a different country felt like a daunting prospect at first, but I was given guidelines of support at every stage. Without calling them, they called me every time to make sure I was supported in every stage.Amith Roy - Third year student From Harrogate
Varna is a great city and the University is also good, one thing that many of my friends find good about Varna is the availability of many restaurants of different countries, Italian, Mexican, Turkish to name a few, furthermore food is also much cheaper compared to England
Dr. Frederick Philip MBBS,MSC Psychiatrist at Farnham Road Hospital, Guildford, Surrey.UK
As a doctor at NHS, I know how challenging the field of Medicine is, and as a result it was essential for me to send my daughter to a recognised Medical University with good standards- one that provides astute and excellent training. Upon extended reading and research, I found out about such opportunities in Bulgaria. Their Universities are all approved by the GMC, meaning the course will be accepted by hospitals in the UK without additional tests such as PLAB. I found out about Varna University through VistaMed, an agency with years of experience in consulting and recruiting students to Bulgaria. I’m very grateful for their wonderful support, they’ve made the entire process hassle free, and have especially been excellent with information providing, therefore I am more than happy to recommend them to you. As for my daughter (Sheena) she’s happy how things have been, the teaching, the campus, the city and have settled in well.
Dr ShylaKumar H K, MBBS , DPH Shushrusha Hospital Bangalore
Sending my daughter to study Medicine abroad was always going to be a difficult choice, my daughter (Sivatimika)was anxious about her potential life in Bulgaria, however after extensive research about the University and visiting the city of Varna myself, my fears were eased. Albeit being smaller than Bangalore, Varna city has its own charm, a beautiful, safe seaside city with a campus that I believe will provide a great atmosphere for studying and relaxation. The University is approved by the Medical Council of India and is ranked much higher than many Medical Colleges in India, and after visiting the University and its hospital, I was convinced this is the ideal opportunity for my daughter. The hospital and its wards, consisting of 1000 beds, are very well maintained, modern and tidy, comprising of the most modern equipment needed to diagnose and provide treatment., I’d like to thank Dr Joshy Jose and his team for this opportunity for my daughter, he did his utmost best with advice and paperwork and made the entire process easier.

Firstly, I’d like to convey my gratitude to VistaMed for their exceptional support in getting a place to study Medicine for my daughter. My daughter (Nimisha) is thrilled with her new life in Bulgaria, she’s very happy with the campus life and have made many friends and is pleased that there’s so many other Malayalis with her. Her apartment, chosen with the help of VistaMed is located right next to the University, which ultimately helping her settle in well for first year. I was pleasantly surprised at what I saw when I visited Varna, a relatively small city but with all the facilities you’ll need, with warm and welcoming locals. The airport is only 15 minutes away from the University and there are direct flights daily from London, so travelling is also not a major obstacle. I’ve also had an opportunity to visit the University to check for facilities and was pleased that their library contained internationally recognised English Medical books, Robin’s Basic Pathology, Grey’s Anatomy, and Sabotta to mention a few. I believe this, along with other excellent facilities, makes the University an ideal place for study for my daughter for the MD programme.

As a doctor myself from India, it was imperative to me that my son(Rahual) to choose the right University for his medical course. I heard about Varna Medical University in Bulgaria through VistaMed (whom I was introduced to by my relatives living in the UK) Varna seemed to be a great place for studying and through VistaMed’s first-rate work in providing information, I attained details about the University, its high ranking, world class facilities and its prominent presence of Malayali students, which helped assure an effortless task of settling in for my son. A degree from Varna University is recognised worldwide, including by the Medical Council of India, as well as everywhere in Europe- which played a vital role in his choice as it opens potential opportunities to living and working in countries like England, Ireland and Germany. I’d like to express my sincere gratitude to VistaMed for their constant support.
Dr.Sabitha.R.Nair ,BDS,MDS Orthodontist Balsm Alofoq Dental Clinic, KSA
My son (Goutham)aspired to be a doctor from an early age, so when given an opportunity, it was important for him to grab it. Which University? I've asked myself this initially, however after realising that the Universities in Bulgaria are ranked much high internationally, combined with the alluring prospect of studying medicine in Europe, the decision was made. It was also a decision made by the recommendation of my friend whose son is also studying there, they heap praise onto Varna especially about the city and its safety. My son is happy with his new life in Bulgaria. I'd like to point out especially, due to a delay in Visa approvals to Bulgaria this year, my son missed a few weeks of lessons, however VistaMed arranged tuition lessons free of charge enabling him to catch up on what he had missed. For this and all the other help I'm grateful to VistaMed and would happily recommend them to any prospective student looking to study in Europe.

Choosing the right agency was a very important decision in my daughter’s (Bhavana) life and played a crucial role in enabling a smooth transition into a foreign education system, and I am very glad we decided to go with VistaMed. Even at the initial phases of the application, VistaMed provided not only one-on-one care of being accessible to clarify doubts around the clock but also provided a user-friendly and state-of-the-art e-application. The technological advancements improved the ease of access and understanding of the key stages of the application, in terms of enrolment forms to complete on prior to the beginning of semesters’. This support continued past successful enrolment at the Medical University of Varna, to completion of acquiring the Bulgarian ID and acquisition of a nearby accommodation with minimum commute to the main university site and multiple convenience stores. The entire team of VistaMed has given their all-round support and thus giving me confidence in entrusting them with the care of my daughter.
Mr. Saji Lukose MSc,MEd
After my daughter (Aparna) completed her A Levels, we began to look for Universities for a Medical course away from England. While considering such options I was recommended VistaMed by my relative whose daughter was using their services and was very happy. Their online application made the whole process very easy and within moments, we were registered with the University through them. They were also very prompt with their replies meaning there were no confusion for us at any stage of the process. My daughter is happily getting on doing her 2nd year of medicine and we’re both very pleased with VistaMed’s services.
Mr.Vargese Abraham, MBA
Finding VistaMed was very lucky for me and my daughter( Harita ), Dr Joshy was not the typical agent I’ve came across with other agencies, I could see from the beginning how sincere he was about my daughter’s future and how knowledgeable he was in the field of education as a whole. He didn’t just advertise his agency or why I should send my daughter to Varna with VistaMed in the conversations with him, he also gave his honest and best advices on each career pathways, the good and bad, which immediately made him stand out from other agents out there. Even now, Dr Joshy is still in contact with me to check up how Haritha is doing and for general talk, an owner of a good agency and a friend, there was no way I could say no to a request for a testimony and I will strongly recommend VistaMed to anyone.
