Publicly Funded Post Secondary Enrolments - FLE Enrolment by Field of Study


Full Load Equivalent (FLE) is a measure used so that we can make comparable calculations across different institutions, across different programs. The FLE is measured by taking the load of the student enrolled (instructional hours + practicum hours) and dividing by the full load of that program. This results in a comparable metric to be able to use across the system. The FLE calculation is consistent for every institution and program. Field of study is reported using the CIP (Classification of Instructional Programs) 2011 code value assigned to each program and specialization. CIP codes are used to classify like programs based on the instructional content of the program/specializations. This dataset will show the FLE measure by each 2 digit CIP code by Academic Year.

Usage Considerations

The Banff Centre does not offer Certificate, Degree or Diploma programs. As a result, no data for the Banff Centre is listed in the above table. Program Completions include Completions in Certificate, Degree and Diploma programs only. o Students completing their final instructional portion in their apprenticeship program are included in the values above, as the Journeyman Program Type is a Certificate credential. In 2013-14, Innovation and Advanced Education introduced a new reporting application. This resulted in some data conversions and updated full-time/part-time calculations. As a result of these changes, the data in the above table may not align with previous data pulls. Academic years are related to each individual institution, and generally run from May through April or July through June. The data is submitted at the end of each academic year, and then requires a rigorous review and sign off, meaning there is a time lag of approximately one year before data is updated. For example, the 2013-14 academic year enrolments are first submitted in July/August of 2014, and the system data would not be released until all submissions are finalized. This translates to the 2013-14 academic year typically being ready for use by December 2014 at the earliest.
