Information Bulletin / Australian Council for Educational Research ; n.3. Digitised from library copy.


This 1946 Bulletin was compiled primarily for the guidance of overseas students wishing to study at Australian universities. For the six Australian universities at that time (Sydney, Melbourne, Queensland, Adelaide, Western Australia, and Tasmania - plus New England University College and Canberra University College) the bulletin provides an overview of university administration, admission requirements, living conditions, residential facilities, general expenses and care of student health. It outlines fees and scholarships available, a summary of courses and subjects of study, and information about social life and student societies. Statistics include teaching staff, student enrolments, fees for courses and for residential colleges, plus approximate living expenses. It concludes with a table indicating the number of teaching and research staff in each department.
