For potential international students, deciding on a school is a major challenge. Picking a school isn’t just about the education but also about the environment the school offers. A recently published study on the best urban destinations for international students is a great guide in helping narrow down choices.

In an annual study by QS, respondents graded cities according to these categories: university rankings, a collective performance of the city’s universities, student mix or student make-up, the desirability of each destination, employer activity, affordability, and a new component called student view. The survey collected data with over 18,000 responses from students and graduates all over the world. After four years in the top spot as the world’s best student city, Paris was dethroned by Montreal, which ranked at the seventh place last year.

Montreal surprisingly ranked fifth on the student view indicator, scoring high in arts and culture, and an overall favorable rating for friendliness, diversity, and affordability. A respondent deemed the city as one that “lives with/for students,” while many focused on its diverse opportunities and “vibrant clash of North American and European values.” Its overall score is 478, while Paris follows with 467.

Yet another Canadian city (we’re sensing a pattern here) rounds up the list with Vancouver in 10th place. Meanwhile, Paris lands a spot at number two, while Boston, at eighth place, becomes the sole representative of the United States in the top 10. Here are the best student cities for 2017:
