It’s official – London’s the best student city in the world

London; student

We think London is a pretty awesome city to study in – and we’re not the only ones. The UK’s capital has just been ranked number one in the world in the recent QS Best Student Cities Rankings 2022.

Taking into account a city’s diversity, affordability, employer activity and the quality of universities, the rankings aim to showcase the quality and opportunities of different study destinations across the world. The rankings also consider what other students who are studying there really think of it – and what past graduates have to say about the city.

With London’s wealth of cultural institutions and academic offerings, its buzzing student life and global community, it’s no wonder that the city has come out on top.  London is also home to influential graduate employers, which means that students are in the perfect place to progress their careers when they finish their studies.

SOAS students can really make the most of all the city has to offer – after all, our campus is right in the heart of London. Located in leafy Bloomsbury, we’re just round the corner from the British Museum, a short walk to the British Library, and close to countless theatres, pubs, cafes, parks – and the famous Oxford Street. Why not take a birds eye view of our campus and its central London location in our virtual tour?

SOAS Campus

Student life is second to none here, with our very own SOAS Students’ Union a great place to start. Our university is known for being a social hub – from lively after-hours debates to hosting major music acts. But don’t just take our word for it – find out for yourself.  Study in the best student city in the world. Come to London – and choose SOAS.
