About predegree

Perhaps you’ve always been hearing of predegree but really don’t know what it entails.

Predegree is a one-year program (like a foundation program) organized by the university for secondary school leavers. It’s primarily for students who desire to study at the university.

So on completing the program, successful students will be given admission into full-time courses at UNICAL. However, not all courses are available through pre-degree. Just so you know.
