April 13, 2011

A summary research report by the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario observes the province has outpaced the rest of Canada in graduate enrolment growth over the last decade, with doctoral and master's enrolments having risen by 67% and 51%, respectively. The paper notes there has been a huge growth in enrolments among 22- to 29-year-old students, and that more grad students are studying full time. The research also shows Ontario universities responded to the enrolment growth by developing new programs and broadening field of study choices. The paper suggests more could be done to enhance the understanding of this topic in the province. Summary | Read the report
