In 2002, MSLU and NBU signed a cooperation agreement on faculty and students exchange. Under the agreement, in the 2003-2004 academic year, NBU helped MSLU to open a Bulgarian Studies Programme (Bulgarian Language, Culture and Literature). Since then it annually sends its faculty to MSLU to give lectures, conduct lessons of Bulgarian language and culture, and translation and interpreting classes between Bulgarian and Russian.
