Is struggling Alberta economy leading to high postsecondary enrolment in Lethbridge?

August 15, 2016

A boost in enrolments at Lethbridge College and Lethbridge University could be due to the sagging Alberta economy, writes Global News.  Lethbridge College Assistant Registrar Alison Grandmont says that the college’s official registration numbers are up 15% from a year ago. uLethbridge is also anticipating a 2% enrolment increase, and university Vice Provost Lesley Brown notes that the difference in growth numbers between the institutions might be due to how quickly students are looking to re-enter the workforce. “The college offers accreditations in two years; at the University it takes four years. That may affect choices,” Brown said. Global News
