Studies at the preparatory period are pre-academic; they do not award students with any credits towards their studies at Technion.
Attendance in class is mandatory and will be supervised by the teaching staff and the Pre-University Education Center’s staff.
In order to pass the preparatory period and continue to academic studies at the faculty, students must obtain the following:
- A final grade of at least 70 in each subject (Math, Physics and Hebrew)

During the preparatory period, the Pre-University Education Center are managing the weekly schedule, exams schedule and quizzes schedule.
