Otago Polytechnic is on track to meet forecast student
numbers this year, with enrolments up 3.3% on last year.
A finance report tabled at yesterday's polytechnic council
meeting showed that as of the end of September 3938.8
fulltime equivalent students (EFTS) had enrolled. This was
131 EFTS (3.3%) more than at the corresponding time last year
and only 2.4 EFTS down on forecast.
Chief executive Phil Ker noted in the report that the
polytechnic was on track to meet forecast student numbers by
the end of the year.
The operating surplus for the year to September was at
$893,000, which was $227,000 down on expectations, in part
due to ''timing''.
