Undergraduate applications continue to increase
Numbers released by the Ontario Universities Application Centre show a three per cent increase in first choice student applications to Queen’s and a five per cent increase in total applications compared to last year.
“These numbers reflect Queen’s strong reputation, and the fact that high school students recognize the quality of the education we offer and the value of the Queen’s experience,” says Jo-Anne Brady, University Registrar.
Queen’s received a total of 27,856 applications for 2011 entry, up from 26,524 last year.
Applications for students not currently attending an Ontario high school have increased by 12 per cent, as has the number of visa student applicants.
Many programs also experienced an increase in application numbers compared to last year, including Commerce, which had a 12 per cent increase, and the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, which had an 11 per cent increase.
The admissions process will continue through mid-May and all applicants will receive a decision on their application prior to the Victoria Day long weekend.
