Exeter has again become the centre of att.action for a large number of foreign students from many countries. The University College of the South-West Holiday Course, inaugurated by Professor .1. W. Schopp, its founder (a Catholic), in 1928, opened last week. The felancial stringency prevalent in many European countries so seriously affected thi attendance last year that only 108 entered for the course. The total this year has reached the very satisfactory number of 136. composed of representatives from 22 different countries.
The course seems to have become particularly popular in France. which is sending the large contingent of 48, while Germany, which in former years provided the bulk of the students, tends only twelve. This number is topped by Switzerland with nineteen representatises. An attractive programme of lectures and a number of social functions have been arranged. Among the la.ter the reception by the Mayor and Sheriff, the Exeter Rotary Club, and the League of Nations Union on August 8, in Rougernont Gardens, will be an outstanding event.
