SQ Best Student Cities Ranking
The second place is grabbed by Seoul and third by Munich, followed by Zurich and Melbourne in fourth and fifth places, respectively.
When it comes to India, its highest-ranked student city is Mumbai at 103 spots which scored for affordability but struggles with student mix and desirability.
On the other hand, Bengaluru ranked at 114 ranks followed by Chennai and Delhi, they have made their entries to the list this year at 125 and 129, respectively.
How Does QS Best Student Cities Ranking Help?
The QS Best Student Cities Ranking helps students with independent data regarding a range of factors relevant to their study decisions.
This list includes affordability, quality of life, the standard of university, and the views of previous students that have studied in that destination.
Further, this ranking considers 140 cities around the world.
If we talk about the Arab region, the best student city is Dubai, which ranks 51st globally.
At the same time, Buenos Aires takes Latin America’s top spot, ranking 23rd in the world.
Attracting International Students In India
If we talk about the International students in India, they represent only a small fraction of the overall student body in India.
The All India Survey on Higher Education (AISHE) 2018-19 indicates that the number of international students enrolled in Indian universities was just 47,427.
By the end of 2023, India seeks to attract 200,000 international students, more than four times the current total.
It appears that the goal may need to be reviewed as it was set prior to the global Covid-19 pandemic, which has deeply affected international students’ mobility.
The QS Senior Vice President, Ben Sowter said, “Unsurprisingly, Asia is home to some of the most outstanding student experiences in the world. Seoul is its standout location, primarily thanks to the concentration of quality it boasts in its universities. However, this is not exclusive to the South Korean capital. In fact, five of the world’s top-10 cities in this metric are based in Asia, highlighting the continent broadly as a bastion of higher education excellence. Combine this with outstanding career opportunities in its metropolitan hubs, and we see an exceptional region in which to study and live,”.
