A preparatory course is often used to help college-bound students increase their scholastic opportunities during high school. These programs are especially helpful for students whose high school academic opportunities don’t match the stringent requirements for competitive universities.

What are preparatory programs in computer science? The courses involved in completing this path may introduce high school students to the academic study and challenges of college. The field of computer science includes a study of the growth of technological development. Classes may include an introduction to computation or coding, mathematics, electronics, the mechanics of electricity and optics, computer architecture, or operating systems. Topics may include the use of algorithms to interpret and process information. Coursework may also involve programming in WEB, Java and C .

As students leave their preparatory programs, they tend to have developed improved college research skills and better time management skills. Some students may find that their math and organization skills have led to improved budgeting habits or that their understanding of software and operating systems has led to fewer problems with malware and viruses.

The costs of participation in preparatory programs may be affected by factors such as the universities offering the courses, any financial resources available in the community and eligibility requirements. Interested students should research their possibilities by contacting prospective universities or colleges directly.

A preparatory program doesn’t result in a traditional college degree, but it could open many doors in the computer science industry. Some options may include internship positions with research and development agencies or assistant positions for a professor. With enough evidence of their skills and abilities, graduates from preparatory programs may be able to move directly into jobs as a computer scientist or engineer, computer systems analyst, software engineer, data science researcher, or computer programmer.

These programs are available in many areas around the world. Some of the preparatory courses may be available on a distance learning or online platform. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

This Level 3 qualification award is a full-time one-year bridging program taking international students from 12 years of high school education and preparing them for their undergraduate entry. All unit content is drawn from the (UK) national program of study for their A-level counterparts and assessed at a Level 3 standard. The assessment is highly controlled whereby NCC Education produces all the assessment and marking schemes, with examinations marked by NCC Education in the UK (and that would include all the science units) whilst assignments are marked by the centre and moderated by NCC Education staff again here in the UK. L3IFDHES is designed for international students who have studied usually in a 12-grade system and who need to complete extra study to meet the UK’s Higher Education entry requirements. The L3IFDHES prepares students linguistically and socio-culturally in areas such as the English language, Computing, Business, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics to enter the first year of a United Kingdom degree course. -
