TORONTO, Sept. 18, 2013 /CNW/ - Seneca has reached its highest continuing education enrolment in its 46-year history with more than 70,000 part-time student registrations.
Seneca has long been the leader in providing flexible, high-quality programs for those who want to further their education and upgrade their skills, attracting significantly more part-time students than any other Ontario college.
"We are delighted that the demand for our continuing education programs continues to grow," said David Agnew, Seneca President. "This is part of a broader trend of students seeking more flexible options for their education, and Seneca is responding with evening, weekend and online courses that are meeting labour market demands."
Most part-time students at Seneca are working towards a professional designation or career-based credential, whether a degree, diploma or certificate. Part-time enrolment has grown by more than 10 per cent over the past five years and continues to grow this fall.
Working with industry partners and program advisory committees, Seneca's Faculty of Continuing Education and Training offers more than 150 part-time degree, diploma and certificate programs. Seneca continues to expand its suite of graduate certificates and degrees to meet student and employer demand. Seneca has recently launched a new part-time Accounting Techniques certificate and new part-time graduate certificates in Nonprofit Leadership and Management and Social Media.
Seneca's fall full-time enrolment has also increased by nearly five per cent over last year.
With campuses across the Greater Toronto Area, Seneca offers degrees, diplomas and certificates renowned for their quality and respected by employers.
