Preparatory year programme

The Preparatory year programme gains its importance from being the first incubator and the main gate to the university where students are first introduced to the university atmosphere and prepared  to receive their basic skills and knowledges. Here in this college students are supplied with the methods and tools that enables them to step forwards in a quality transit to a new level of maturity. Students gradually enter into a new life that differs totally from their previous stages of education where they used to receive knowledge by indoctrination, keeping and recitation to a stage where he/she have to activate his/her own abilities and ways to acquire  necessary skills and knowledge.
