Preparatory Program

In the Preparatory Program, students usually spend one year getting prepared to enter degree programs at the UCT School of Business, as well as programs at other UCT faculties and technical universities. Based on individual assessment, they typically take courses improving their English and communication skills, subsequently combined in their study plan with courses closely focusing on the completion of any pre-requisite skills, such as in Mathematics, Economics, Physics or Chemistry, essential for successful studies in the program of their choice.

Students will normally be considered for the Preparatory Program based on English proficiency at B1 level, including a working knowledge of the Latin alphabet, as well as their motivation to continue in a particular degree program. Organization of the classes and of the academic year is broadly similar to degree programs, and includes class sessions, guided self-study, consultations, regular feedback, progress tests and exams. Acceptance and study in the Preparatory Program makes students eligible for a study visa and residency permit in the Czech Republic.
