The Campus Advidsor has ranked the world’s university cities based on the ratings of foreign students. Budapest, the capital of Hungary, also made the list, although it was only in the middle of the ranking.
On Campus Advisor, you can read reviews of universities and colleges in many countries. But now they published a long, comprehensive list of the best cities to live in as a student. The list of thirty cities includes Budapest, the capital of Hungary. Budapest came fourteenth. The Hungarian capital was ahead of Singapore, Edinburgh, Boston, Amsterdam and other cities.
Cities are ranked according to six criteria. These are student friendliness, cost of living, nightlife, public transport, amenities and safety. The Hungarian capital received a total of 4.31 out of a maximum of 5 points. The highest score was 4.73 for nightlife, while the lowest score was 3.71 for cost of living, eduline reports.
“Budapest is the perfect city for students. It has an amazing nightlife (pre-COVID), it is relatively cheap, compared to other big cities, it is safe compared to other capital cities. It is good to make a few Hungarian friends at the beginning of your studies, so they can help you out with administrative stuff, but besides that, it is great for an international student, very friendly and lively city,” said someone.
The best university city in 2022 is Melbourne, Australia. It scored 4.69 out of a maximum 5 points. Newcastle, United Kingdom (4.53) and Seoul, South Korea (4.52) also made the podium. Melbourne scored a near perfect 4.97 in the Student Friendliness category. But it scored above 4.5 in all categories except Cost of Living.
“I lived in Melbourne my whole life, it is a great city. There are plenty of things to do whatever your hobbies are. Also if you want more “outdoor” activities, the regional areas surrounding Melbourne also provide some excellent adventurous opportunities. The only downside is that Melbourne is an expensive place to live. Renting is not cheap. But it has great opportunities to find work and support while studying”, says an academic.
