What is a preparatory year in mathematics? Basically, it is a year that you take to get ready for a degree in the math program. The direction that you choose to eventually take may vary greatly, but there are some basics that you will need to learn and know no matter what. Some of the courses that you could take during the year include critical thinking, lab skills, mathematics and the completion of a research project. Statistics and programming are some other possibilities depending on which direction you choose to take your education.

When you complete a preparatory year in mathematics, you can expect to experience some benefits. They may include an increased salary due to more knowledge, career options that you may not have foreseen or simply the basic knowledge needed to get into your degree program.

The cost of a preparatory course in mathematics varies depending on where you choose to go to school. Because there are different universities in different countries that offer this program, it is best to get in touch with the admissions office to find out how much you can expect to pay.
