UBC’s Annual Report on Enrolment in 2012 came out recently, revealing some potentially interesting facts!
- Enrolment is up to 49,241 students for the Vancouver campus, a 2% increase from last year.
- Over the next few years, there will be fewer domestic students admitted to UBC because the number of domestic students at UBC has increased beyond what the government can fund.
- International students represent 17% of the student population at the Vancouver campus. Over the last year, international enrolment in direct entry degree programs increased by 14%. It is expected that new intakes for international undergraduate students will increase by 10% per year over the next three years.
- The mean admission average of a first year student on the Vancouver campus was 89.7%, which is the same as in the previous cycle. This year marks the first that broad based admissions was used, and about 12% of first years would not have been admitted if not for these broad based admissions.
- The Faculty of Science has the highest admission average out of all Faculties at 92.3%. The lowest was Forestry at 83.1%.
- Approximately one third of the Vancouver campus student population self-identify as ‘White’, and approximately one third self-identify as ‘Chinese’. Note: Only 42% of students filled in the ethno-racial survey.
