University of Lethbridge Records Steady Enrolment Increase

 
 

LETHBRIDGE:   The U-of-L enrolment has edged up 0.3 per cent since last year with a total enrolment of 8,311. While not a large jump, the number is seen as steady growth.

 

There was a drop in the number of transfer students, from 982 in the fall of 2012 to 827 this September. That drop may be attributed to the fact that there are now two new universities in the province, Mount Royal in Calgary and Grant MacEwan in Edmonton.

 

However, a further break down in enrolment numbers offers an interesting picture of education at the University. There was an 11.3% jump in new high school students which accounts for 1,142 of the total student population. Out of the new high school enrolment number, 221 of those students have come directly out of Lethbridge High schools.

 

Also, the university has seen a 16.4% jump in Graduate program enrolments, which can be attributed to the U-of-L's move toward a comprehensive research and teaching university. This fall, there are 533 students enrolled in graduate programs, compared to 458 in the fall of last year.

 

Among the student population, there has been an 8% increase in international students (from 447 to 483), who represent 88 different countries.
