What is SoftUni?

SoftUni is one of the biggest and most respected providers of non-formal education in South-Eastern Europe. The company was founded in 2013 to provide accessible, high-quality, and up-to-date programming training in Bulgaria. Shortly after, SoftUni became a market leader and started offering courses in Design and Digital Marketing as well. In 9 years we have helped thousands of students get a profession and start a job.

SoftUni also helps companies with strategic business cooperation, franchise opportunities, intensive corporate training, and comprehensive educational materials. Our partnering network consists of 100+ local and international corporations, many of which use our B2B services daily.

Innovative methodology and curriculum

SoftUni’s biggest competitive advantage is its innovative educational programs. The scheduled on-site or online instructor-led group training allows students to easily combine learning with other commitments like work or school. 

The comprehensive learning approach focuses on integrating theoretical knowledge with real-life exercises and projects. All curriculums are developed by industry experts and structured into open courses, modules, and professional programs with a gradually increasing difficulty.

The educational materials and assignments are being constantly revised to include best practices and the latest software technologies. This gives students the necessary skills to obtain a job in their chosen profession.

To better help both individuals and businesses, SoftUni has been building close relationships with leading local and international companies in the tech, digital marketing, and graphic design industries from its start. Their constructive feedback and market insights help in revising and expanding the existing curriculums. As a result, SoftUni’s graduates find it easier to get internships and job opportunities in comparison to traditional university alumni. On the other hand, the local industries benefit from qualified professionals matching the skill set companies are looking for. This in turn boosts the national economy and especially the IT ecosystem with its ever-growing demand for competent developers and software engineers.
