Growth In New Programs And International Students Bumps Enrolment
The September headcount is in and Selkirk College has experienced a slight gain in student numbers. The 2013 count has the college sitting with a total of 2,155 students compared to 2012’s September count of 2,061.
Final semester calculations will be compiled for the end of October, but the annual September headcount reveals a 3.6 per cent increase in domestic students and a 21 per cent increase in international students.
The largest jump comes from the National Association of Pharmacy Regulatory Authorities bridging program which has more than 330 registrants. Selkirk College signed the agreement with NAPRA earlier this year and is the only college in Canada offering the online program.
