KL ranks 28th in global QS Best Student Cities

PETALING JAYA: Kuala Lumpur breaks into the global top 30 best student cities to live in.

In the latest QS Best Student Cities Ranking 2023, Malaysia’s capital city stands at the 28th position globally and sixth in Asia.

Moving up three places in the global ranking, KL is also ranked as Asia’s most affordable study destination.

It beat cities like Beijing, Los Angeles, Adelaide and Taipei in the 10th edition of the ranking.

Meanwhile, London maintained its stronghold in the first position for the fourth consecutive year.

“Unsurprisingly, Asia is home to some of the most outstanding student experiences in the world.

“Seoul is its standout location, primarily thanks to the concentration of quality it boasts in its universities.

“However, this is not exclusive to the South Korean capital.

“Five of the world’s top 10 cities in this metric are based in Asia, highlighting the continent broadly as a bastion of higher education excellence.

“Combine this with outstanding career opportunities in its metropolitan hubs and we see an exceptional region to study and live in,” QS senior vice-president Ben Sowter said.
