International-student enrolment boom at uAlberta

December 16, 2010

New figures from the University of Alberta show nearly 4,500 international students enrolled in full- or part-time programs at the institution in fall 2010, up from approximately 3,920 the year before. Foreign students now make up 11.7% of the overall student population, up from 6.9% four years ago. While uAlberta continues a steady climb of international numbers, the most significant year-over-year gain in 2010 was the number of new foreign undergraduate students. Nearly 530 new international undergraduate students enrolled this fall, compared to 407 the year before -- an increase of 30%. uAlberta News Release
