It is a surprise that though US and UK dominate the top Universities ranking, only one city each from US and UK have found a place in the list of top ten best cities for students.
The list of top ten best cities for students is as follows:
Seoul, South Korea
The rankings are based on multiple factors which include the quality of universities, facilities for students, affordability, desirability of the city for students, access to employers, the international nature of a city, levels of tolerance, pollution and safety.
Indian Cities In Top 100 Best Cities For Students
In the top 100 list, two Indian cities have made their presence too albeit at the lower end of the rankings. Mumbai has been ranked at 85th place and New Delhi at 86th place.
Both the cities are home to two famous central universities in the country, University of Mumbai and University of Delhi and attract under graduate and post graduate students from all over the country.
In terms of affordability, New Delhi has scored better than Mumbai with 73 points in comparison to Mumbai's 63. In desirability index, both the cities have not fared much with 28 and 29 for New Delhi and Mumbai respectively. On the scale of employer activity, Mumbai has scored 61 and New Delhi has scored 56.
The inclusion of the two metro cities in the top 100 is satisfactory but the low rank on the spectrum also is a tell-tale sign that India not only needs to improve the education system but also need to improve the support and facilities available for students.
