QS, headquartered in the United Kingdom, has elevated MONTREAL to the #1 spot on its list of Best Student Cities in the World. The rankings are based on the student mix, desirability, employer activity, affordability and the opinions and experiences of students. VANCOUVER was the only other Canadian city in the Top 10 list at #10.
Ben Sowter of the QS Intelligence Unit – “For Montreal and other Canadian cities, the actual experience that people are having when they go there is much more positive than the imagination or expectation of it before they go.”
Meanwhile, the University of TORONTO has noticed a surge in the number of Americans visiting its website – http://www.future.utoronto.ca – since Donald Trump’s election. U of T is consistently ranked one of the top 10 public universities in the world.
