Paris has once again topped the annual QS Best Student Cities, a ranking of the world’s top cities for students, released today. London was two points behind, narrowly missing the top spot.

The ranking, compiled by the team behind the annual QS World University Rankings, is based on five key pillars, which are then broken down into individual criteria: university rankings; student mix; quality of living; employer activity and affordability.

Two pre-requisites have been established to identify the cities evaluated in this exercise. The first is that each city must have a population of over 250,000, the second that it must be home to at least two ranked institutions in the QS World University Rankings. 98 cities in the world qualify on this basis, 50 have been published.

This year, the number of criteria has increased from 12 to 14, adding in the Globalization and World Cities Index as an indicator for “quality of living ” with a focus on the cities’ influence in the global arena.

Thirty countries are represented with the most cities in the US (7), followed by Australia (6), Canada (3) and UK (3).

The new countries represented in the top 50 are Norway, with Oslo (48), New Zealand, with Auckland (18) and Czech Republic with Prague (45).
