Benchmarking the Enrolment Structure of an Educational System without Exceeding the Carrying Capacity Requirement

Abstract


In this paper, we propose an enrolment projection method based on the carrying capacity of the educational system. The method is a refinement of the recruitment control strategy proposed in the literature. We implement our proposed method using enrolment data from a university setting. The results obtained by extrapolating the short-term shifts in enrolment structure reflect the normal progression pattern in the system.
