Preparing for Natural and Applied Sciences School

If you are considering studying natural or applied sciences, your post-secondary planning process should begin as early as high school. These science programs can be competitive and are rigorous. Thus, it is important to plan your high school courses accordingly: load up on academic math and laboratory sciences classes along with English/communications to ensure that you are well prepared for the schools that make your list. Computer skills are also an asset in many of these programs.

If you are still in high school, and are thinking about taking natural or applied sciences, there are several additional things that you can do to prepare and increase your chances for being accepted:

  • Undertake to read and study independently. This is a good way to develop interests, expand your knowledge and improve your vocabulary and reading comprehension skills needed for school. This will also help you if admission requirements include an interview, since you will be able to impress the committee with the knowledge you have built up of terms and issues specific to this area of study.


  • Admissions committees may also be interested in a student's personal qualities, which can be developed through participating in extracurricular activities. Consider joining or even starting school clubs, whether related to your area of interest or not. This is also a good way to develop demonstrated leadership skills, which are an important aspect of any competitive application.


  • Work experience - paid or volunteer - can also increase your chances of being admitted and is an achievement often regarded highly by schools.


  • Prove your interest and work ethic. Science programs require a lot of dedication and hard work, and schools want to admit students with the best chances of doing well. Therefore, attending a summer science camp or similar type of activity can show an admissions committee that you are dedicated to the field and know what to expect.
