Tyndale Breaks Enrolment Record for Fall 2013
On the first day of classes for the fall ’13 term, Tyndale University College welcomed the largest enrolment in its history with over 600 students. This represents a 3% increase from 2012 and a 27% increase over the last 5 years.
Tyndale Seminary also welcomed a larger student body, with growth of over 8% from the previous year. Over 750 students are enrolled at Tyndale Seminary in a variety of programs and formats, maintaining its place as the largest graduate theological school in Canada.
Dr. Barry Smith, Registrar and VP of Student Services, commented, “We are excited to welcome record enrolments for both Tyndale University College and Tyndale Seminary. The increase at the university college represents our hard work over the last few years as we focused on developing a unique undergraduate university educational experience. Academically it is our strongest incoming class with more President Scholarships offered to students with an exceptional entering GPA.”
Between the two schools, Tyndale’s student body of more than 1,400 come from 8 provinces and several US states, with increasing numbers originating from outside of North America, both on campus and online. This continued growth and expansion positions Tyndale well as it moves to the new 56 acre campus on Bayview Avenue next summer.
