Beautiful Gothic Examination Hall, University of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
Each of the states in the commonwealth of Australia has a university supported by the government as are the University of Toronto and the universities in all the Western provinces of Canada. New South Wales, the wealthiest and most populous of the states, has always been a leader in education, and its university is the largest and best equipped in the country. It is situated at Sydney, the capital. As is to be expected in a city of nearly a million population it has large university buildings. Around the university are clustered the denominational colleges of the Anglican, Presbyterian, and Roman Catholic churches, in which young men are prepared for the ministry. The university has sixteen hundred students, thirty professors, and one hundred assistant teachers.
