Australia is ranked as leading destinations to study for international students. Australia’s top cities Sydney and Melbourne climbed up the ladder of world rankings for the best student cities in the world for the QS 2018 report once again.
Meanwhile, the QS Best Student Cities Ranking which got released yesterday incorporates advice and response from more than several current and prospective international students have eventually ranked the third-best city as Melbourne for studies. The ninth position was bagged by Sydney.
Almost around 125 cities had qualified in 2018 survey which specified that the enlisted cities must have inhabitant count of about 250,000 and also the enlisted cities must have two universities in minimum which are already featured in QS World University Rankings.
This year Melbourne laddered up two places up in world rankings i.e., from 5th to 3rd making a place after London and Tokyo. While Sydney climbed up to a significant of four ranks higher i.e. from rank 13th last year to rank 9th this year.
Basis for Ranking
The cities which were declared competent in this survey had a ranking basis on these following grouping:
Student mix from all over the world. Overall student population counting the relation between global students to local students, cultural variety, and inclusivity. A town with a broad-minded attitude from the locals mattered to students and their guardians who desire to preserve their standard of living, cultural setting, and regional identity.
The second most crucial factor is desirability. Ranks based on the whole element of desirability for the students to dwell in any of the city which has a secure environment, visible governance, and a fresh and pollution-free locality. It, also, includes the students’ awareness of the ideal purpose to acquire an international degree.
Employer activity also serves as an essential prerequisite. Domestic and global employer status in cities that are highly sought-after as opportunity grounds for new employees. An extra bonus is also practical in countries with youth service chance based on figures enlisted by the World Bank.
Next is affordability, which is an important quality for a student to live in. Cities based on the price of livelihood and affordability of teaching and schooling fees and other accompanying expenses which serve as central factors when students and their guardians are allowing for global education.
Skill in areas such as open-mindedness and enclosure, multiplicity, friendliness and ease of getting around, affordability, art and culture, and employment opportunities. It also enlisted cities based on the number of global students who either stay after graduation or would feel affection to stay and get employment.
Hope of Improvement
Also, the 2019 QS status shows universities in Australia are at a minor global shortcoming on ways of affordability. This is an examination and inspection of previously about the matter.
We try to fix this up when it comes to learning quality. The QS results support management initiatives like Study Melbourne and Study Sydney, which provide global students with service assistance, occupation guidance, and everyday living support.
