This international ranking of university cities_94643780_montreal1 has seen Paris slip from first place, a
position the French capital has held for four years.
The Canadian city has come top of the QS Best Student Cities, a spin-off from the annual QS World University Rankings.
It will add to suggestions that Canada will attract a bigger slice of the lucrative international student market. It also has the benefit of being able to offer degree courses in two big international languages – with English-speaking universities such as McGill University, and French-speaking, such as the Université du Québec à Montréal.
Entry to this league table requires cities to have at least a population of 250,000 and to be home to at least two universities in the World University Rankings.
