International enrolment boom at CNC

October 2, 2012

BC's College of New Caledonia reports a 16.5% increase in international students this year to 296, an all-time high for the institution. The college welcomed 100 new international students on campus last month, up from 70 in fall 2011. Overall enrolment totals 2,208 FTE students, down 7.5% from 2,387 FTE students in fall 2011. "There are several contributing factors, such as the improved regional economy and record high employment levels in the Prince George area," says CNC's VP of community and student services. "The decline in high school enrolments in the area also played a role." CNC News Release
