The Independent has reported that QS Best Student Cities has released their list of the best 50 cities for students. Home to twenty-two universities and a variety of other education establishments, London achieved second place in the list. While the cost of living and studying in London was discussed, the QS Guide referred to London as “a nerve-centre of global academia,” with “world class facilities”.
For the second consecutive year Paris was given the plaudit of first place, succeeding London by only two points, due to its 17 world-ranked universities, low tuition fees, range of employers, and its status as “one of the world’s most historic, culturally vital and beautiful cities.”
Universities included in the list of top 50 were based on scores in five categories, which included university rankings, quality of living, and employer activity. With London in 2nd place, Manchester and Edinburgh reached 29th and 32nd place respectively.
As an international removals company offering a wide range of services for students moving abroad, the team at Interdean were interested in the release of the top 50 cities for students in the world. A spokesperson for the company shared their thoughts on the subject:
“It’s welcome news that a list of the best cities around the world for students has been compiled and London received second place. Studying abroad can be an exciting experience for students but there are many things to consider, so lists such as these can play an important part in the decision process when students moving overseas are considering between cities. International students have plenty to offer so it is welcome news that London, Manchester and Edinburgh have all appeared in the list. We look forward to the release of the next list.”
