Montreal was just ranked the best city for university students in Canada, and the 10th best in the world.The survey, conducted by the British firm QS, has Montreal beating out Chicago and New York City, and just behind Paris, London and Boston. Montreal scored so highly based heavily on its quality of life and number of international students.
Montreal has four universities and has a higher percentage of university students in its population than all other major North American cities. What’s more, the average yearly tuition paid by Quebec students is the lowest in Canada. As well, the province offers a number of generous student aid programs.
While tuition for out-of-province and international students studying in Quebec is significantly higher, the children of new immigrants to the province can take advantage of the low in-province tuition rates.
