Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 2, No. 17. August 9, 1939
In Australia there are the two large universities—Melbourne and Sydney—with over 4,000 students each, Queensland and Adelaide with about the same number as V.U.C., Hobart with 300, and the University of Perth, which is a free university. We had no opportunity of gaining many impressions of Sydney University, but we decided that Melbourne is the outstanding university in Australia; certainly so far as student activities are concerned. They are well organised, and a large number of students take an active interest. We placed Adelaide next on the list.
