ITS recently issued annual report shows that this most cosmopolitan of all colleges in Great Britain numbered last year among its 3,284 students no fewer than 910 visitors from 52 countries outside the British Isles. By far the biggest contingent, 228, came from India. From Germany came 73, Scandinavian countries 47, Switzerland 30, France 25, Holland 21 ; from Australia 30, New Zealand 27, Canada and Newfoundland 45, the United States 43, South Africa 37, Egypt 26, Palestine 28, China 35. For some years past the College reports have directed attention to the increase in the number of postgraduate and research students. Last year these advanced students numbered 616, and it is noteworthy that more than 40 per cent of them were from abroad, including 81 from India, 24 from Canada and Newfoundland, 23 from China, 22 from New Zealand, 18 from Australia, 18 from South Africa, 10 from the United States and 10 from Germany. A list of more than five hundred original papers and other publications from the various departments of the College in 1937 is appended to the report. A coloured plan shows graphically the growth of the College site and buildings since 1827.
