It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Prep Year Program(PYP).Since the establishment of KFUPM in 1963, the Preparatory Year Program has been a core component of the University's academic curriculum.  The Prep Year Program is continually developing concurrent with KFUPM academic programs.  PYP provides students not only with a sound basis in academic skills, but also seeks to develop students into well-rounded individuals. The curriculum is designed to ensure that each student maintains a sense of pride in his native culture.

The PYP is determined to be a major influence on KFUPM graduates by keeping close contact with students and academic departments, and by continuously assessing and developing its programs and courses to accommodate the changing needs and conditions towards accomplishing its set objectives and goals.

PYP is one of the leading programs adopted by KFUPM since its establishment , transferring its experience to many other universities and educational institutions. The program has succeeded, throughout its history, to make a tremendous difference in the lives of students and their behavior patterns and prepare them for university study.

We believe and confident that we are laying down a strong foundation of our industrial,academic and business leaders.

Thank You!​
