The Guardian, Montreal Gazette, et al. - Montreal is among the best 10 cities to study in the world


Montreal is the only Canadian city to crack the Top 10 list in a new ranking of the best cities above 250,000 for students — a list that will be considered by jet-setting scholars everywhere.

Montreal’s tenth place in the QS World Best Student Cities rankings was earned through high scores in all five of the criteria areas considered. The next Canadian city on the list is Toronto at #26. Toronto managed to beat Montreal on the quality of living and employer reputation measures, but was dragged down in part by relatively poor affordability.

Both Montreal and Toronto beat Chicago, New York, San Francisco and every other U.S. city for affordability.
