Europe tops ranks for best student cities
Ever fancied studying in Sydney, revising in Rome or procrastinating in Paris?
The first global student cities rankings, released this week, show the world’s best cities to study in.
European cities dominate the list with Paris, London, Vienna, Zurich, Berlin and Dublin all making the top ten.
The rankings are based on quality of living, affordability and university reputation, amongst other indicators.
London triumphed over Manchester and Birmingham to become the United Kingdom’s highest ranking city, coming second only to Paris.
The research, carried out by Quacquarelli Symonds, also stated that London is the “only city in the world with three of the world’s top 30 universities.”
One student who spent time studying abroad agreed with the findings.
She said: “For me, my year spent in Paris was my favourite year of study.
“It is amazing to be immersed in a completely different culture and Paris has so much to offer.
“I would say to anyone who gets an opportunity to study abroad to take it.”
Unfortunately Brighton failed to feature in the top 50, but with only three much larger cities from the United Kingdom making the list, competition was stiff.
