DLTIS conducts a foundation year for foreign students who want to study in Bulgarian universities. During the foundation year, they study Bulgarian and English, as well as other subjects depending on the students’ prospective university major, e. g. science, mathematics, geography, economics. During their preparatory year, students learn Bulgarian, improve their knowledge of English and familiarize themselves with the terminology of the respective area of studies in Bulgarian or English. Instruction is multimedia-based and makes use of a variety of online teaching resources. At the end of the foundation year, students take tests in their respective subjects. The certificate earned is sent to the respective universities where students wish to pursue their studies so they may be enrolled in the desired programme.
