The city of Barcelona is positioned among the best cities in the world to study at the University and, we don't say it!
The QS Best Students Cities ranking published by the company Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), dedicated to market studies for the classification of universities worldwide, published the best cities in the world to study at the university and places Barcelona (2018 Edition) in the 31st position. In this edition, the city of Montreal, in Canada, lost the first position of the ranking obtained during the last year, occupying the position number 4 of the ranking, while the modern city of London moved to the first position.
European countries such as the United Kingdom and Germany considerably improved their position in this edition, while Spanish cities such as Madrid, appeared in the 32nd position and Valencia, in the 90th position.
Barcelona became in this edition of the ranking the best Spanish city to study in the University!
For a city to appear in this prestigious ranking it must have more than 250,000 inhabitants and two of its universities must be published in the latest QS World University Rankings. In the specific case of Barcelona, these two universities are the Autonomous University of Barcelona and the University of Barcelona.
The novelty of this edition of the ranking was that it took into account the opinions of students and graduates on aspects such as reputation, cost and quality of life, tuition fees and diversity of cultures among university students.
It is therefore not surprising that Barcelona has one of the most important university communities in Europe, surpassing the figure of 200,000 university students, of which around 20,000 are foreign students, coming from the many Erasmus programmes or, on their own initiative and due to the prestige of their universities and study centres, they choose Barcelona to complete their university degree and even begin their professional careers here.
