A preparatory year prepares students who have finished their secondary education and are unsure if college is the right path for them. It is also a good path for those who want to continue their education but are ill-prepared for the academic challenges that college presents.

What is a Preparatory Year in Natural Sciences? A science degree is challenging and requires strong academic and laboratory skills. A preparatory year trains students for this rigorous subject while introducing different natural science topics. Students develop a strong foundation so that they can be successful in pursuing a science-focused education. Each program will vary but subjects studied may include biology, physics, chemistry, and earth science. 

Along with studying different science areas, students also often learn critical thinking and analytical skills that will benefit their future education and career. Even if an individual decides not to pursue a science degree after the preparatory year, they still come away with a number of other skills that will help them in other areas.

The tuition and fees can vary greatly from one program to another. Preparatory years are offered all over the world so the location of the school is a big factor. Students are encouraged to research a number of programs and contact the schools directly to find out what financial obligations to expect.

Completing a preparatory year will not lead to a career in science, but it does provide a foundation for future education. Most careers will require a bachelor’s, masters, or doctorate degree in a particular area of study. Careers in natural science cover a wide range, from employment in math, ecology, or the medical field to medical research or marine science.
