Montreal is once again one of the 10 best cities in the world for students, according to the latest international rankings by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS).
QS — which also compiles the sought-after World University Rankings — praised Montreal as a cultural hot spot, noting that the city plays host to several major international festivals and a strong indie music scene.

The annual Best Student Cities list put Montreal in the top Canadian spot for the third time in a row. It is one of the top two student cities in North America, second only to Boston.
