August 10, 2021
The QS World University Rankings for best student cities in 2022 has been released. Montreal was ranked as one of the top ten cities in the world and placed first in Canada. Other cities that ranked within the top 100 in the world include Toronto (13), Vancouver (18), and Ottawa (53). The rankings evaluate cities for factors such as affordability, desirability, and current students’ options. Matthew Stiegemeyer, Concordia’s director of student recruitment, explained that Montreal offers students a rich social life and has a strong reputation, and that interest has remained high throughout the pandemic. “When you have an established reputation, that interest carries forward even when mobility is reduced,” said Stiegemeyer.
