Brno, Aug 12 (BD) – The results for the new Student View category, based on ratings from 87,000 students and recent graduates, are surprising – they suggest that the most iconic and popular cities (London, Paris, New York City) do not necessarily live up to expectations, while smaller or lesser-known cities often make for happier students.

Brno has risen three places in 2019 to rank sixth in the Student View indicator, while Prague came in eight.

According to QS one of the students commented: ‘The exposure you get in this city is awesome – so many different people from different countries come here to study.”

The best student city in the world is, according to students, German’s Munich. Last year’s number one, Canadian capital Montréal came in second and Australian Melbourne ranked third this year.

As the 60th city at the overall QS Best Student Cities list in 2019, which considers the factors of affordability, desirability and employer activity, Brno has the highest student ratio of all the ranked places.

In the overall 2018 rankings for QS Best Cities, Brno came in 63rd. The top three were London, Tokyo, and Melbourne. 

The top three QS student cities are London, Tokyo, and Melbourne this year.
