While Montreal took the top spot in the 2017 QS Best Student Cities index that was released yesteray, Ottawa also had a moment in the spotlight after it was voted by students as the best university city in the world.
QS, best known for its annual World University Rankings, introduced a new “student view” category to their fifth edition of the Best Student Cities list. Between Dec. 2016 and Jan. 2017, more than 18,000 students and graduates rated their cities in eight categories: arts and culture, affordability, nightlife, employment opportunities, diversity, tolerance and inclusion, ease of getting around, and friendliness.
They were also asked whether they would stay, or had stayed, in the city after graduating, according to QS. Following Ottawa in the top 10 “best cities” list was Prague, Shanghai and Brno.
