LONDON, December 1, 2015 — Paris, the French capital, has again topped the QS Best Student Cities Rankings. It is followed by Melbourne, again second, and Tokyo in the third place.

London stands behind Sydney and ahead of Singapore, with the high cost of living in London being the primary reason it does not feature higher.

Anne Hidalgo, Mayor of Paris, said: “Paris is proud to be ranked as the best world student city. Our youth reflect our greatest strength… We will continue to support students by offering them opportunities in an open, dynamic, and creative city.”

The United States is the most represented nation, with eleven placed cities. Boston (=13th) and New York (20th) are in the top twenty. It is followed by the United Kingdom (eight cities) and Australia (seven). The expanded rankings shine the spotlight on a series of new cities, such as Oslo and Monterrey.

The ranking are based on five key pillars:

  1. University Rankings
  2. Student Mix
  3. Quality of Living
  4. Employer Activity
  5. Affordability

To be included in the ranking, each city must have a population of over 2,50,000, and must be home to at least two ranked institutions in the QS World University Rankings. 122 cities in the world qualified on this basis, and 75 have been ranked.

The QS Best Student Cities rankings are designed to provide students and parents with a detailed comparison of the various merits of university cities worldwide.
