University of Manitoba’s enrolment has exceeded 29,000 for the first time in the university’s history.

First day enrolment is 29,321, an increase of 1.8 per cent over last year’s first day of classes record enrolment of 28,795.

"The continued increase in first day enrolment numbers is an indication that the University of Manitoba is the post-secondary institution of choice for students wanting to build better futures for themselves and their communities," said David Barnard, president and vice-chancellor.

Full-time enrolment increased from 23,994 students to 24,541 students, while part-time enrolment dipped slightly, from 4,801 to 4,780. Undergraduate enrolment increased by 1.1 per cent, from 24,948 students in Fall Term 2012 to 25,225 students in Fall Term 2013.

Graduate enrolment increased significantly, by 5.1 per cent, from 3,302 students to 3,469 students this year.

International enrolment increased 17.1 per cent to 3,750 students.
