Enrolment Plan

Priority 5: Establish a student enrolment plan that aligns with student recruitment targets

Priority 5: Establish a student enrolment plan that aligns with student recruitment targets

The objective of this priority is to establish an enrolment plan that will be designed to achieve the desired size and shape of our student body through adopting a more strategic approach to recruitment. This priority links very closely with Priority Two of this plan, which is focused on bringing greater coherence to our curriculum offering. In the implementation phase of this strategy, enrolment planning and curriculum alignment exercises will be carried out simultaneously. A new approach to enrolment planning will see the newly established Recruitment and Admissions function working in close collaboration with the four Colleges, Adult Continuing Education and the Centre for Professional Development, to establish achievable and desirable recruitment targets for a coherent and marketable academic portfolio.

The following leading actions are proposed to advance this priority:
