It was back-to-school for most University students on Thursday, and officials at the University of Manitoba say they’ve broken an enrolment record.

About 29,300 students are registered with the institution, an increase of 1.8 per cent from 2012. Full-time student enrolment increased, as well as international student enrolment. Part-time student enrolment is slightly down.

The biggest increase perhaps is the university’s faculty of agriculture and food sciences, which saw the largest increase up 23.7 per cent from last year.
