LONDON, February 15, 2017 — Montreal, Canada, has topped the QS Best Student Cities Rankings 2017.

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.

Paris drops to second place, receiving reduced rank for Affordability and Desirability.

While London rises from fifth place to third place suggesting that UK cities remain excellent study destinations in the face of Brexit, with rises in QS’s Affordability indicator a major contributor to all eight of its ranked cities improving their rank.

Affordability issues adversely affect American cities: though Boston places eighth, ten of its twelve ranked cities drop.

Australia’s high cost-of-living and tuition fees are proving disadvantageous: all of its seven ranked cities drop, with Sydney plummeting from fourth to thirteenth, and Melbourne falling from second to fifth.

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

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

For the first time, two cities from India, Mumbai and New Delhi, get included in the World’s Best Student Cities.

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

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.
