Survey of Movers. Executive Summary
British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer
Thanks to the Student Transitions Project (STP) there is a wealth of data on student mobility in BC's post-secondary system; however, these data do not explain why students are moving, and how their educational goals are being supported. In early 2012, the BC Council on Admissions and Transfer commissioned BC Stats to survey over 1,600 students who changed BC public post-secondary institutions between the 2010/11 academic year and fall 2011. The BC Transfer System enabled students moving to research universities to plan effectively, and provided those moving from research universities the option to continue their studies elsewhere when circumstances intervened. Students moving to and from all institution-types were able to progress toward their educational goals across the range of institutions and programs comprising BC's articulated post-secondary system.
