Top 10 Best Student Cities 2017

The global higher education analysts QS Quacquarelli Symonds declared top 10 Best Student Cities in 2017.

The cities are Montreal, Paris, London, Seoul, Melbourne, Berlin, Tokyo, Boston, Munich and Vancouver.

In the rankings, Montreal in Canada has ended Paris's five-year run as the world's best student city,

This year's ranking features a 'Student View' indicator for the first time.

Seoul is Asia's best student city, rising to 4th, followed by Tokyo (7th) , Hong Kong (11th) and Singapore (14th).

Findings for the United Kingdom provide reassurance to those concerned about  the potential effects of the UK's impending exit from the EU on its higher education sector.

Montreal's success is the latest of a series of propitious signs for a city beginning to escape a period of economic stagnation, following positive growth forecasts for 2017, and the recent announcement of its selection as the 'World's Most Intelligent City'.

Its first-place ranking is also the highlight of a series of positive performances from Canadian cities: four of the country's five ranked cities improve their position. Other key findings include:

Berlin rises to 6th; Munich (9th), and Vancouver (10th) complete the top 10.

Over 18,000 students responded to QS's inaugural survey for this ranking, providing input about their own student experiences, and, for prospective  students, the relative desirability of a city.unb
