Preparatorias de la Universidad de Monterrey

Preparation for university life

Through the IB Career-related Program (CP) of our Multicultural and Bicultural Programs, Prepa UDEM offers you a series of tools that will help you to discover your vocation, choose an undergraduate degree program, and make a plan for your future life:

  • Focus courses
  • Preparatory school-University bridging courses
  • Vocational guidance

Focus courses

These courses prepare you academically in your preferred area of knowledge and they facilitate the selection of bridging courses.

Preparatory school-University bridging courses

They allow you to confirm your vocational interest in the undergraduate degree program and they gradually integrate you into university life. Depending on the preparatory school program that you study, you may take two or four of these courses that can be validated for the undergraduate level when you pursue your university education at UDEM.

Vocational guidance

It helps you as a personal and vocational guide during your preparatory school studies so that you can discover your strengths and interests, select your focus and preparatory bridging courses correctly, and confirm your decision about your university degree program.

Preparatory bridging courses

UDEM offers 46 undergraduate degree programs
and there are four preparatory bridging courses for each one of them.

Students pursuing the Bilingual Preparatory School and International Baccalaureate
programs only take two preparatory bridging courses.
