Brock enrolment numbers are up over last year

Brock says the latest enrolment numbers suggest more Ontario high school graduates are choosing the university.

The numbers are in from Monday’s deadline for Ontario secondary school students to accept their university admission offers.

Once again,  this year the increase in applicants to Brock exceeds the average growth rate for Ontario universities.

The provincial average is 3.1 per cent in first-year confirmations.

Brock has received a 13 per cent increase in confirmations  -  a 20 per cent increase overall from this time last year.

Brock University President Gervan Fearon says students, their  families and their guidance counsellors are becoming aware that Brock is a national leader among universities its size.
