Australian National University
Mysterious white scepter:

Like the Oxford scepter, it is made of gold and plated with silver. It is said that it can only be seen at important ceremonies such as graduation ceremonies.
At the beginning of its establishment, the Australian National University only recruited graduate students. It was established by a bill passed by the Australian Parliament in 1946. The purpose is to establish a top research-oriented national university and improve Australia’s overall strength. .
A school that is too serious:
Every September, there is a tradition in Mexico, that is, the Prosh Week Naked Festival! As a world-class institution of higher learning, the University of Melbourne has such a streaking festival, which is boundless!
The Big Streak Festival, for both men and women, is the craziest and sexiest party in Australia and the world, and lasts for a week. The streaking festival is also a very long-standing tradition in Mexican universities, and it continues to be varied today.
Famous Invention School:
All world-famous inventions come from this university in Sydney, which is one of the top universities in Australia, Oceania and even the entire southern hemisphere university. It was founded in 1850.
Alumni include seven Australian prime ministers, including the first prime minister and the current prime minister, which is the most among all universities in Australia; now common WIFI technology, black box, cochlear implant, etc. Both were invented by graduates of the University of Sydney. Don’t you think so!
The University of New South Wales
There is a secret passage in the school! Legend has it that UNSW at the University of New South Wales has a mysterious underground passage that is only used for emergencies. There are rumors in the world that the entrance to the passage is near the Scientia lawn.
The school also established a team at UNSW, one of the world’s quantum computers, and used silicon-based quantum technology to create quantum logic gates that can be used for calculations. After the invention of WiFi, Bump is leading the world again!
Planted Newton’s Apple Tree: Youyou Resource Network
In addition to Cambridge University, Monash University also has apple tree branches, which are said to be Taken from the apple tree that inspired Newton to discover gravity. They were planted in the back garden of the School of Engineering at Monash University in 1975, implying that Newton’s research spirit spread from the northern hemisphere to the southern hemisphere.
University of Queensland
From the perspective of the number of teachers, the University of Queensland has the most with 39There are 30 teachers; in terms of quality, more than 82% of the teachers have taken doctoral courses.

When cervical cancer became a major killer of women all over the world, Francis, director of the Cancer, Immunology and Metabolic Medicine Research Center at the University of Queensland, invented a vaccine to prevent cervical cancer in 2006. Within a year, there were 130,000 vaccines for women worldwide. Now women who come to Australia can be vaccinated to prevent cervical cancer.
The University of Western Australia

The University of Adelaide has trained five Nobel Prize winners! This is also the birthplace of the Olympic torch! Although Sydney is the host city of the Olympic Games, the first place for the Olympic torch is the University of Adelaide at the southern tip of Australia.
At that time, the design team consisted of 12 professors and engineering students, and it took three and a half months to complete the design. Because the design refers to the shape of the Sydney Opera House, it is waterproof and windproof, and uses high-tech materials. It was adopted by the organizer, which fully reflects the leading position of the University of Adelaide in material engineering.
Melbourne Monash University
