LONDON, May 8, 2018: London is the world’s best student city. The fifth edition of the QS Best Student Cities Ranking, released today, sees London replace Canada’s Montreal as the world-leader.

London rises to the first position primarily as a result of increasingly positive responses to QS’s student survey, which asks students about the quality of experience in a city, and their willingness to remain there after graduating.

Ben Sowter, Research Director at QS, said: “The 2018 ranking highlights the enduring quality of the student experience available in London. The city benefits from outstanding employment prospects, more world-class universities than any other city, and excellent lifestyle opportunities. These factors mean that the capital remains a great place to study despite eye-watering costs - as more than 50,000 student respondents to QS’s survey have made clear.”

The QS Best Student Cities index, published annually, showcases the best urban destinations for international students. The index assesses cities for its University Rankings, Student Mix, Desirability, Employer Activity, Affordability, and Student View.
