2003 BC College and Institute Short Stay Pilot Project

The 2003 BC College and Institute Short Stay Pilot Survey collected data on the outcomes of former students who left public colleges, university colleges, and institutes after completing a relatively small number of courses-between 9 and 23 credits.

The survey collected data on these former students' overall satisfaction with their institution, objectives for enrolling, reasons for leaving, employment outcomes, and further studies. Data for this report are from survey interviews conducted, by telephone, in February and March 2003.

Six BC institutions volunteered to fund and participate in the survey. There were two university colleges: the University College of the Cariboo and Okanagan University College; two urban institutions: Douglas College and BC Institute of Technology; and two rural colleges: Selkirk College and North Island College.
