Carleton says that it has not seen a “Trump bump” in international enrollment

July 25, 2017

International students expressed more interest in attending Carleton University after the election of Donald Trump, but their interest did not lead to increased enrolment, according to university spokesperson Steven Reid. “While there has been a modest increase in visitations to Carleton’s webpage by prospective students from the US and other countries, to date there is little data to suggest a dramatic increase in acceptances of offers of admission,” said Reid, who added that Carleton’s approach to international students is based on a proposal to modestly grow the enrolment over the long-term. Reid noted that this approach “ensures that our international students receive the support and services they need to succeed in their studies.” Carleton
