Best Student Cities in the World 2012

Quacquarelli Symonds has released its annual QS Best Student Cities in the World rankings.

Five indicators were used to rate the cities:

  • university rankings, 
  • student mix (student population, international student population),
  • quality of living (a score based on the results of the Mercer Quality of Living Survey 2011),
  • employer activity (popularity among local and foreign employers),
  • affordability (tuition fees, Mercer Cost of Living Index).

Moscow ranks 37th.

The ranking is controversial so you interact with the vis on your own responsibility...
