Top 100 Best Cities For Students: India Ranks Below 80 In Global Ranking

New Delhi:  The cities for students have been ranked for 2017. These are the cities which are favored by students because of the affordability, desirability and most importantly the scope of employment and employer activity. The list of top 100 best cities for students was prepared by QS which also ranks Universities world-wide on various parameters. In the rankings, Montreal has emerged as the best city for students closely followed by Paris and London as second and third best cities for students. 

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:

Montreal, Canada
Paris, France
London. UK
Seoul, South Korea
Melbourne, Australia
Berlin, Germany
Tokyo, Japan
Boston, USA
Munich, Germany
Vancouver, Canada

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.
