Montreal has been ranked the best city in the world for international students! As a French-Speaking city in a largely English speaking country, Montreal has experienced mass immigration from across the world. Montreal is known for its multicultural makeup and inclusive ethos. It is also home to several of Canada’s highest-ranking institutions including McGill University, which has been ranked 30th in the world, and 1st in Canada.

Although Toronto did not make the top 10 list (ranked in 11th place), it did have the highest score of any city in its Desirability category index. Toronto has been rated the most appealing city not only for its universities, but for its nightlife, cultural amenities, and its diversity. Unfortunately, Toronto lost out on metrics, such as affordability.

Here is the top 10 QS Best Student Cities in 2017:
