Best Student Cities in the World 2019 (See Ranking)

For the first time ever, London has been crowned the world’s best student city, according to the rankings, released this week by analysts Quacquarelli Symonds (QS).

Montreal, which held the top spot last year, has slid down from first to fourth position behind Tokyo and Melbourne.

Not a single US city made it into the top 10 after a nationwide decline in students’ happiness with affordability, employer activity and student mix.
