1. Last month, residents of Melbourne noticed yet another advertisement from one of Melbourne’s many educational institutions…
Yup, nothing to see here. WAIT.
It’s a weak advertisement in the first place and the typo doesn’t exactly help. Monash is apparently “ranked amongst the world’s most prestigious universities”, and “believe[s] quality education and research can change the world for the better.” They also “measure [themselves] against international standards,” although I suppose orthography must not be one of those standards.
The mistake was noticed by Reddit, The Australian, and undoubtedly Monash’s competitors.
