Vancouver Ranks 12th In Best Cities In The World To Be A Student

Vancouver has ranked high on yet another list this year – Best Cities for University Students.

Earlier this week, TopUniversities.com revealed their rankings of the world’s top cities for students. The list was led by Paris, Melbourne, and London. Montreal and Toronto also made the list as the top eighth and ninth spot, respectively.

Cities were judged on the following criteria:

  • University rankings
  • Employer activity
  • Affordability
  • Desirability
  • Student mix

Vancouver ranked 12th for student mix, and 25th for affordability (not surprising). When it came to desirability, Vancouver ranked seventh.

1. Paris
2. Melbourne
3. London
4. Sydney
5. Hong Kong
6. Boston
7. Tokyo
8. Montreal
9. Toronto
10. Seoul
11. Zurich
12. Vancouver
13. San Francisco
14. Munch
15. Singapore

 

To qualify in the ranking, each city was required to have a population of 250,000+ and be home to a minimum of two ranked universities in the QS World University Rankings.
