And the second best city in the world for students is… London!

Thinking of reasons why you should come to study in London this year?  Well, here’s one for you: Last week, the BBC published an article on its website which revealed that London is the second best city in the world for students!

The ranking of the world’s 50 best cities for students is aimed at international students who are considering where to study.  Cities included in the ranking are those with more than 250,000 inhabitants and two or more top universities.  Factors taken into account were affordability, quality of life and university reputation.

London came in second place in the ranking, beaten only by Paris!  Both cities scored highly on quality of life, student mix and the employability of graduates, but the deciding factor was affordability.

In the article published on 15th February, Ben Sowter, lead researcher on QS Best Student Cities said:

“While high tuition fees make London a far more expensive proposition than Paris, London’s array of world-class universities means it is worth the investment for many students.”
