The University of Regina [CIEC Academic Member] so far has seen a 15% increase in applications over last year, with 75% of the total applications for fall 2014 now submitted; applications to the university have more than doubled in the past 3 years. uRegina explains that more than 80% of the application boost is due to an increase in international student applications, which have risen 7% this year. There are also more out-of-province high school applications than there were last year. “Of particular note is the increase in the number of applicants from Calgary, which shows that our targeted recruitment efforts are well received and effective,” says uRegina President Vianne Timmons.
TCS Insights: uRegina is experiencing a rise in their received number of admission applications. While Canadian students from outside of Alberta have also contributed to this increase, the 7% surge in international applications is thought to be the main source for this growth. This shows that the university is becoming a destination for students from countries other than Canada for a place of higher education.
