The Ministry of Advanced Education and Saskatchewan’s post-secondary institutions are working together on a new Post-Secondary Education Indicators Project, which will help collect, analyze and report sector-wide post-secondary data.

The data is taken from Saskatchewan Polytechnic, the University of Regina, and the University of Saskatchewan, and their first set of numbers has been released. These are based around enrollment, especially involving demographic numbers and types of credentials awarded between 2013 and 2017.

The numbers show that 42,500 students are enrolled in credential programs, with 5,400 First Nations, Métis and Inuit students enrolled, a 26 percent increase between 2013 and 207, and the amount of international students just topped 5,000, a 29 percent increase in the same amount of time. It was also found that 11,400 credentials were given in 2017, with a 1.6 percent increase annually year over year.

Credentials awarded to First Nations, Métis and Inuit students also raised 35 percent, and 37 percent for international students since 2013.

The project is still in its pilot phase and includes data from students in degree, diploma or certificate programs at the three post-secondary school.
