Varied pathways: The undergraduate experience in Ontario - ARCHIVED

Articles and reports: 81-003-X19970033623


This paper, which examines, pathways pursued by undergraduate degree students in Ontario, is the first of a series of articles that will be developed as a result of this research. Students who entered undergraduate programs, either bachelor's or first professional programs, in Ontario from 1980 to 1984 (entry cohort) were traced from entry until the 1992-93 academic year. As a result, students had eight or more years during which they might have completed the requirements of their programs, at either the university in which they first enrolled or another Ontario university. In particular, the age of entry, program choices, completion rate and duration of study for the entry cohort are examined in this paper. As this first paper is limited to one province, some students who did not graduate may have completed their program requirements elsewhere. Nonetheless, results presented provide useful information on students's study patterns that was previously unavailable.
