Enrolment at NIC up 5%

February 1, 2011

In its meeting last week, at which time members were presented with North Island College's stable enrolment report for the 2010-11 school year, the college's board of governors were informed that registrations had increased 5% over the same period last year. The strongest growth occurred in business and university transfer arts and science, which saw an increase of 702 registrations, or 10%, year-over-year. One NIC vice-president says it appears much of this growth is attributable to an increase in local secondary school students transitioning directly to the college. NIC saw some decline in demand for trades and apprenticeship programs, which typically reflects current economic conditions. NIC News Release
