Fewer Maritime Grads, More International Ones

Fewer New Brunswickers  getting university degrees since a peak in 2007, but more international students coming to the region continuing to reverse that trend. That's according to a new report by the Maritime Provinces Higher Education Commission, and CEO Mireille Duguay tells us those numbers will keep holding steady.

She says for the next few years we can expect stable numbers in various institutions based on the numbers they have been tracking in the past 5 or 6 years.

Duguay says while there has been a drop in the number of undergraduate degrees granted over the last five years, the number of Master's degrees granted going up by 22-percent over the same time period.
