Northlands, TRU, USask celebrate surges in enrolment, registrations


Northlands College, Thompson Rivers University, and University of Saskatchewan have each announced enrolment improvements this Fall. Northlands recently celebrated a 19% increase in its domestic enrolment. Northlands President Karsten Henriksen attributed this achievement to the “relentless efforts” of college faculty and staff. TRU also reported a surge in registrations among its international students, marking a 900 student increase this year, despite having reportedly experienced a decrease in international applications and admissions in most programs. TRU says that it benefitted from expedited study permit processing and established initiatives to encourage new and continuing students to register early. USask has reportedly witnessed a 3% increase in its first-day enrolment over the last year, which has been driven by increases in its international and Indigenous student populations.
