London tops student city list

UK-Japan News May 2018

London has been ranked top of a list of the best cities in the world for university students. Tokyo came in second place, the BBC reported on 9 May.

The ranking, from the QS higher education group, looked at access to culture, job prospects, the number of world-class institutions, the cost of living and affordability.

While London scored high on access to culture and the number of institutions, Tokyo won points on its desirability, which takes into account factors such as safety, pollution and quality of life.
