These are the 10 best cities in the world for students

Dispelling fears that Brexit would have somewhat dampened its appeal, London has been ranked by global higher education analysts QS (Quacquarelli Symonds) as the world's best city for university students.

Released today, the fifth edition of the QS Best Student Cities Ranking sees London rise from third to first, with Tokyo and Melbourne not far behind, as first reported by Business Insider Australia.

To produce the QS Best Student Cities ranking index, QS analysts use indicators divided into six categories: university rankings, student mix, desirability, employer activity, affordability, and student view.
