Despite the recent influx of student walkouts and protests that continue to take a toll on students, Toronto has been recognized as one of the best cities in the world to be a student.
AppJobs, which helps users find easy ways to make money in their city, analyzed the world’s top cities to study and ranked them according to key factors it believes are important to students.
This included average monthly rent prices, the number of universities in the area, the number of part-time jobs, the number of concerts and shows, and of course, the average cost of a pint. Each city was then given a score out of 100 to determine its ranking.
Based on these results, AppJobs was able to pinpoint the best cities in the world to be a student.
