Enrolments continue to climb at Otago Polytechnic.
At the polytechnic council's latest meeting it was revealed 3725 equivalent full-time students (Efts) had enrolled with the polytechnic's campuses this year, an 11% increase on the 3346 that were predicted.
Otago Polytechnic chief executive Phil Ker said he was ''very pleased'' with the result.
''This is the fourth year in a row that we are enrolling way ahead of our cap and it's quite unusual in the polytechnic sector,'' he said.
He believed a combination of factors, including the polytechnic's reputation, its range of programmes and the attraction of Dunedin as a place to study were behind the increasing rolls.
It had brought in more revenue to the polytechnic and the finance report presented to the council showed a surplus of $2.297 million for the 2014 year to date - $719,000 more than what was budgeted.
