Students have had a busy year at Canadian universities, with more than half of the top 10 universities announcing new undergraduate programs in the past year.
With more than 1,100 colleges participating in the admission process, the process can be a bit of a rollercoaster, with many schools taking longer to get their top students in, especially those with fewer applicants, but the process does help with recruitment efforts and can help colleges reach more students in the fall.
Below are a few highlights of the schools with the biggest jump in applications since the fall of 2016: York University The university made the top 25 for the first time in four years, gaining four spots to become the only university in Canada to have an increase in applications in the last year.
The university also received the highest number of applications since last fall.
As of the end of the 2016–17 academic year, more than 3,500 students applied for the program.
With almost 1,400 applicants, York is on track to become Canada’s first university to have 100% of applicants receive admission to the program by 2019.
The school has a reputation for making top-notch students and will be the first of four schools to have at least one full-time undergraduate associate professorship in the future.
McMaster University The McMaster University School of Business is also in the midst of a hiring boom, with the school’s admissions department raising the bar for admission in the 2017-18 academic year to the upper-tier of international universities.
The average admission rate of applicants to the MBA program in the 2018–19 academic year was 9.9% (about 4,000 students), the highest since 2014.
The new admissions process is designed to bring in students with a strong academic track record, as well as those who have had the chance to work with experienced and successful colleagues.
The first cohort of MBA students to apply for admission will start at the end the fall, with another batch expected to start next spring.
The University of Toronto is now one of the most competitive applicants among the top universities.
It has more than 400 applications in 2017–18, up from nearly 400 applications for the same year a year ago.
The number of applicants is down from the last two years but the school still saw an increase of more than 30% in admissions applications in 2019–20, compared to the previous two years.
The School of Management at the University of Ottawa has seen an uptick in the number of prospective students, especially in the first two years of the program, but has yet to see a significant increase in admissions admissions numbers.
With a large number of candidates already on campus, the school has set a goal of raising its admissions admissions to at least 50% of students who complete the program within a two-year period.
The College of Business at the UBC is also seeing a surge in applications.
The college’s admissions director says the program is attracting a more diverse group of students each year, with a large portion of the students coming from lower-income families and students with limited English language proficiency.
The CBA has been operating in an area of the country with limited funding, which is making it difficult to recruit top-quality students, says the school director, Mark Pender.
“It’s been a bit more challenging, in that there’s been less funding available in this area of Canada, but it’s still an area that we’re committed to expanding and that’s what we’re doing.
We’re looking to attract a much broader pool of students, and that will ultimately help us compete on an international level,” Pender said.
Other schools with big jumps in applications include McGill University, the University Of Ottawa, and Dalhousie University.
University of Ottawa students are looking for a better future at the same time as they are making major academic changes.
The campus saw an average increase in applicants last year to nearly 1,200, and has seen the largest increase in student enrolment since 2015.
This year, enrolment increased by more than 50%, and the number and type of courses offered has increased as well.
For many students, this is the first year they’ve attended university and they are eager to make their mark in the world of learning.
The application process is much quicker now than it was in the spring of 2017, when the school had more than 4,500 applicants.
The University of British Columbia has seen a big increase in application numbers since last year, reaching almost 1.2 million applicants, up almost 400% from 2016.
It is now on track for the largest year of any school in the country, with nearly 1.3 million applicants.
The most recent year of data available shows that the school was on track with a record-setting number of new students entering the admissions process.
This spring, more students were enrolled than in any previous year.
This growth in applications is helping the school to continue its successful turnaround in the admissions department, says spokesperson Chris Knauss.
In addition to the huge number of students entering
