The Yearbook of the Universities of the Empire, 1921


    WE are glad to be able to extend a welcome to the fifth edition of this useful volume. The plan adopted in the fourth edition of arranging the universities in groups-England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Canada, Australia, and so on-has been adhered to, and a brief introductory note precedes each group. A feature of the new edition is the numerous appendices, into which a vast amount of useful information has been incorporated. Short accounts are given of the institutes of accountants, architects, auctioneers, engineers, pharmaceutical chemists, and chartered secretaries, and of numerous other societies such as the Institute of Chemistry, the various colleges of physicians and surgeons of the United Kingdom, together with the regulations as to admission to these bodies. Particulars are also included of the matriculation examinations by joint boards and of inter-university scholarships, fellowships, etc. In Appendix xvm. an account is given of the conditions under which undergraduates and research students are admitted to foreign universities. The facilities for foreign students in most of the principal universities in America and in Europe, with the exception of the German and Austrian universities, are included in this section. The records are necessarily brief, but the information brought together is not readily available in any other single volume, and it makes the book invaluable as a work of reference.
