for some of the printing to be done by
their official printers and/or by private
printing firms. No replies have yet
been received. Meanwhile the Reliance
Printery and the "Vincentian" Pub-
lishing Company have been engaged to
assist the Government Printing Office
with the mass of printing still involved.
Should no assistance be forthcoming
from abroad, present indications are
that it is unlikely that Nomination Day
will be earlier than towards the end of
September, and Election Day in mid-
October.
A further announcement will be
issued as soon as more definite informa-
tion is available.
The Administration deeply regrets
that this postponement of the Elections
from the originally proposed date has
been unavoidably necessary.

No. 433.
STUDENTS PROCEEDING TO THE
UNITED KINGDOM FOR HIGHER
EDUCATION 1952-53 SESSION.

The pressure upon Universities and
Colleges in the United Kingdom shows
few signs as yet of relaxing and in the
Faculties of Medicine, Dentistry, Science
and Engineering the difficulty of ob-
taining places is still acute. Universi-
ties are, however, in general disposed
to look with a kindly eye on Colonial
candidates, provided 1hat they can give
evidence of a high standard of potential
ability. The matriculation require iments
are considerably stiffer under the new
regulations.
2. Both Government scholars and
private students should show that they
have attempted to take advantage of
such local University facilities for
higher education as now exist, before
subnmiting applications for admission
to Universities in the UniLed Kingdom.
3. Every effort will be male to secure
vacancies for properly sponsored and
really wll ll qualified Colonial students.
Though in some cases, particularly in
Scotland, it may be possible to place
students up to the end of March, 1952,
the main bo ly of applications should be
in the hands of the Director of Colonial
Scholars not later than 31st January,


1952, if the fullest advantage is to be
taken of the places available.
In the following categories, however,.
an earlier approach is essential and ap-
plications should reach the Director of
Colonial Scholars by 30th November,
1951, at the latest:-
(a) Courses in Medicine, Dentistry,
Engin*Uring and pure Science.
(b) Teachers' training courses (includ-
ing Physical Training, Domestic
Science and Froebel or other
kindergarten training) for which
the sponsorship of the Ministity
of Education is required.
(c) Applications for admission to Ox-
ford or Cambridge Colleges.
(d) Recommendations for awards un-
der the 1,000,000 Colonial De-
velopment and Welfare Scholar-
ship Scheme.
4. It is most undesirable that would-
be candidates for admission should
proceed to the United Kingdom unan-
nounced and unsponsored in the hope
of obtaining admission to Universities
and Colleges. Tntorial Colleges and
Polytechnics, as well as Universities,
are overburdened with long waiting
lists of non-piiority candidates and it
is almost impossible to gain admission
to such institutions without due notice
in the proper form. Students are,.
therefore, strongly warned against pro-
ceeding to the United Kingdom for
higher education until they are assured
that a place has been made available
for them.
5. It is particularly important that
students should complete their pre-
matriculation studies in their own coun-
try, unless for any reason this should
prove to be quite impossible, in which
case application should be made in the
normal way, and they should not arrive
without sponsorship and the guarantee
of a place in a suitable institution.
6. Full details of financial and other
arrangements are obtainable on applica-
tion at Government Office and all stu-
dents who intend to proceed to the
United Kingdom are strongly urged to
consult the Administration for advice
before making their arrangements.
