QS Best Student Cities by Aimee Stewart
QS Best Student Cities is an annual index assessing cities in five key categories: university rankings, student mix, desirability, employer activity and affordability. This infographic reports the 2015 results, with Paris in first place. The pentagons illustrate how each city scores in the five categories. London earns almost top marks on academia, employment and student mix. Nonetheless it has dropped from 3rd to 5th place due to surging rents and high tuition fees.
