International enrolment at SFU doubles with private college partnership

October 6, 2010

In September 2006, when Fraser International College (FIC) opened, Simon Fraser University's international undergraduate enrolment was about 7% of domestic enrolment. 4 years later, that proportion has nearly doubled to 13.9%. Some 800 new foreign students registered this term, a 29% increase over 2009, and 150 were transfers from FIC. The college now has 1,260 students from over 40 different nations enrolled in its Stage I and Stage II university-transfer programs, the latter featuring courses that are transferable to an SFU degree. The university's board of governors has approved a 10-year renewal of its partnership agreement with FIC. SFU News Release
