London ranked top city in the world for students
by Nina Christopoulou
The votes are in and London has the lead! The QS higher education group just published their review of the 30 top university cities to study.
A list produced by data analysis on a survey conducted among 50,000 students shows that London is their top pick. London is renowned for its selection of world-class institutions, with many great names such as Imperial, UCL, LSE and King’s College. But what other factors contributed to this choice, other than the number of top universities? The survey included questions on a student’s major worries: integration into the job market, diversity of culture and of course the quality of life.
The fact that London is a very international setting means that overseas students feel comfortable in their environment, and have the added benefit of a multi-cultural education. Regarding the job market, it is positively viewed as a place where connecting with future employers and finding professional opportunities is enabled.
Its benefits seem to outweigh the slightly elevated cost of life in student’s eyes, allowing for London to surpass cities such as Montreal and Paris which previously held the reigns!
