Preparatory Studies

A preparatory year is a course of study typically chosen by those who have successfully completed high school or secondary school, but are looking to review or enhance their skills before determining a final career path and signing on at a four-year college or university. Common across the globe, prep years provide an educational foundation of relevance to those looking to ultimately pursue a four-year degree.

Just what is a preparatory year in preparatory studies? While there is some variation in these programs, they typically provide students with a solid general educational foundation as well as a review of fundamental concepts relevant to those looking to further their education and earn a degree. General preparatory years emphasize any number of topics, including, but not limited to, languages and language development, mathematics, science, the social sciences, history, and humanities, among other areas. Some prep years concentrate on a particular discipline, while others offer an all-encompassing educational experience.

Individuals who successfully complete prep years are typically well-prepared to enter and succeed in a four-year college or university. They have both the educational foundation and the social and psychological tools necessary for a smooth and easy transition into a higher education environment.

There is notable variation in the cost of undergoing a preparatory year in preparatory studies. Final tuition costs depend on several key factors, among them the prestige of the school and the program, and the geographic region where it is offered.

Because a preparatory year in preparatory studies offers a broad curriculum focused on general education requirements that are useful in any number of fields, a career path is often not determined until the student begins studies at a college or university, following completion of the preparatory year.
