Bishop’s University experienced a 3.3% increase in new full-time students from Fall 2016 to Fall 2017, welcoming 945 incoming students including 303 international students (9.4% increase in international students from Fall 2016). Bishop’s has experienced a 28% increase in new full-time student enrolment since Fall 2014.
Total enrolment grew to 2,790 students (2,415 full-time undergraduates; 269 part-time undergraduates; and 106 graduate students), which is the most Bishop’s has had in its 174-year history and is an increase of 0.8% from Fall 2016 and a 5% increase since Fall 2014.
Approximately half of the students are from Quebec, with Francophones and Anglophones represented equally. Approximately 30% of students come from the rest of Canada, while approximately 20% hail from 63 other countries (the United States, China, and France are the top three countries represented).
This is the University’s largest incoming class, graduate program cohort, and total student enrolment in its 174-year history.
Dan Seneker, Director of Enrolment Management at Bishop’s University states, “While we have seen an increase in enrolment over the past few years, we are proud to say that it continues to be accomplished without lowering our admission standards. There is a growing demand for a liberal education model and for Bishop’s University specifically. Admission to Bishop’s will become increasingly more selective and competitive.”
