Montreal Ranked Amongst Top 10 Best Cities In The World To Be A Student

Montreal is known for having some of the best schools in Canada, and even in the world, and now our city is being recognized as one of the top 10 in the world to be a student.

The World Economic Forum released a ranking of the 10 best cities in the world to be a student, and Montreal came in an number 8 - not too shabby if you ask me. Toronto also ranked at #9, so Canada was really holding its own.

In terms of criteria they clearly weren't just looking at which city is the most fun, because let's be real,we would have dominated that. According to their website they took into account how well-respected the universities are, the quality of life, employment prospects, general affordability and a vibrant student community.
