Data Check: Enrolment shows no sign of slowing

| Comment

University enrolments continue to increase in Canada. If community colleges that recently were given university status and denominational institutions are included, the total number of students attending universities outside Ontario went up by five per cent between 2010 and 2011 reports the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada. The number of students at older publicly funded universities rose by almost three per cent.
 
In Ontario, the enrolment increase was comparable but marginally higher. Full-time students accounted for the largest share of the larger student population, as the proportion of students registered on a part-time basis fell. For the coming fall, preliminary data on the number of secondary school students applying for full-time attendance at Ontario universities shows a two per cent increase over the previous year.
