Berlin ranked best student city in Europe
The German capital offers students a great study experience, a high quality of life and affordable housing.
According to a recent ranking published by the Dutch think tank The Class of 2020, Berlin takes the top spot among European student cities.
The German capital benefits from a high academic reputation and many international students who have the opportunity to choose from a large range of English study programmes.
Berlin’s international students also love the city’s tolerant and open-minded vibe and the legendary culture and clubbing scene. Compared to other popular study destinations, such as London or Paris, Berlin still has moderate living costs including affordable rental, public transport and restaurant prices.
Another factor is the capital’s well-known start-up culture that is very welcoming to international students with career ambitions. Germany’s visa regulations that allow university graduates to stay in Germany to look for a job after graduation, only add to Berlin and Germany being seen as attractive study destinations.
