University's 2012 enrolment on target

 
2012-12-12

Enrolment statistics indicate total full-time and part-time enrolment at Queen’s has increased by approximately 1.5 per cent, or about 300 students, over 2011-2012, as planned.

“Queen’s continues to attract excellent students to its programs across the board,” says Teresa Alm, Interim University Registrar. “Overall numbers remain on target; while the School of Graduate Studies saw a small drop in admissions, the university has seen important growth in its professional business programs.”

The report shows a 15 per cent increase over planned 2012 enrolment targets to Queen’s School of Business graduate programs – growth attributed to high demand for the Master of Finance program. Enrolment remained constant in second-entry professional programs such as medicine, law and education.

In the international sphere, the Bader International Study Centre welcomed its largest first-year program class this year - 133 students, which was within the planned target. On Queen’s Kingston campus, international student enrolment remained at approximately 5 per cent for undergraduate students and has increased to 21.6 per cent for graduate students, from 20 per cent in 2011.

The university has formed a Strategic Enrolment Management Group to oversee the development of an enrolment plan for Queen’s. The plan will be presented to Senate in the spring.
