The QS (Quacquarelli Symonds) higher education has analyzed data to produce a list of the top 30 Universities in the world for students. The number of top universities in a city, local job opportunities, the diversity of the culture, and the quality of life are important factors that based the ratings. Previously, Montreal and Paris are in first place. London made the list, but it is one of the universities where it is ranked poorly on the affordable level for students.
The QS higher education group published the annual World University Ranking for cities by comparing a survey that consisted of 50,000 views from students. The goal was to attempt to quantify the disadvantages and attractions of cities for students.
London absorbs the attention of other by their world class of institutions than any other country. Students would have access to cultural life of museums, theatres,cinemas, and restaurants. Oversea students would not feel isolated, because London achieved a high rating for being a very international city with high levels of tolerance and diversity.
Research director at QS, Ben Sowter said, (London) “remains a great place to study, despite eye-watering costs.”
In second place, Tokyo In Japan has one main appeal, and it is the “desirability” of the city. The measurement factors consisted of safety, pollution, and quality of living. However, ahead of Amsterdam and Tokyo, and across all other cities, Toronto In Canada is ranked the highest for desirability.
The most affordable places for students consist of Budapest in Hungary, which is rated top, and Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia.
But In the academic World University Rankings, US universities dominate, taking all four of the top places in a league table headed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The only two cities from the United States in the top 30 are New York and Boston.
