The Yearbook of the Universities of the Empire, 1916 and 1917

Nature volume 100, page 324 (27 December 1917) | Download Citation



FOR reasons of economy the Yearbook was not published last year. Since the commencement of the war few changes have been made in the regulations of the universities, and the information regarding the conditions of admission, faculties, degrees, scholarships, and publications of the various universities contained in the 1915 issue continue to be substantially correct and are not repeated here. In view of the fact that there are certain matters to which it is forbidden to refer, the part which the universities have taken in national service of all kinds is not summarised in the Yearbook; this subject is postponed until the conclusion of hostilities. Three appendices added to the present volume give full particulars of the Beit fellowships, the scholarships awarded by the Royal Commissioners for the Exhibition of 1851, and the Rhodes scholarship's.
