Preparation Program

UBT’s Preparatory Program consists of non-credited courses and English courses aimed at improving students’ language proficiency before they begin their undergraduate studies, as well as to develop and improve students’ knowledge of mathematical and analytical techniques through the medium of English Language. The program also familiarizes students with various majors available at the college, with the requirements of undergraduate study, study skills and disciplines of all forms. The program consists of the following courses:

- Language Levels (English Language Academy "ELA")

- Pre-Calculus (depending on the placement test)

At first, newly admitted students are required to take an English placement test to determine his/her level. Each student will be placed according to his/her test results in the following list:

Students may seek course exemptions at ELA by submitting one of the following options:

  • TOEFL iBT result of 75/120 and IELTS result of 5/9
  • Pass the ELA placement test with a very high score 100/120.
  • Student may be exempted from MATH099 by passing the pre-calculus course placement test


Accounting Plan

It is critical for students to follow the program plan during its different semesters because it is designed to prepare the students in each stage to completely benefit from the subsequent stages. Also, it is crucial for the student to meet his/her academic advisor and follow the study plan of his/her major closely. Ideally, this includes taking the lower level courses in the first and second year, attaining as much of the general education as possible, and then proceeding to take the major courses and possibly some minor courses. This is an intricately structured process that students should closely adhere to.
