SACKVILLE, N.B. – Enrolment is down slightly at Mount Allison University, but preliminary figures for next year show the number of students studying there could be going back up.

It’s looking good for 2017-18,” the university’s vice-president of international and student affairs Kim Meade said. “From application activity the numbers indicate that applications are up this year compared to this time last year.”
Meade said applications were down from students in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick last year, but that’s where the university is seeing the most growth this time.
Overall enrolment last year was down three per cent, which amounts to approximately 75 students in a full-time undergraduate enrolment of 2,230. The number of international students remained stable.
Meade said Mount Allison University remains a popular destination for students based on its reputation – including repeated strong showings in the Maclean’s undergraduate ranking, the size of its school and community and its well known experiential learning opportunities.
