Abstract: Student numbers growing Student numbers are good and increasing at the School of Forestry. We are expecting at least 20 students in each of the four years of the BForSc degree in 2018 and over five students in each of the three professional years for the BE (Forest Engineering). Firstyear enrolments in the BForSc are likely to be in the 25 to 30 range. A large number of students come to us by word of mouth - it is great to see sons and daughters of our graduates following their parentís footsteps. Career opportunities are still great with active recruitment by Australian, as well as New Zealand, forestry companies and organisations. Postgraduate numbers have also been increasing. Currently we have 35 postgraduate students enrolled from 16 different countries (Figure 1).
