The website recently released their list of the 30 Best Student Cities in the World for 2022, which was determined entirely on ratings submitted by students.
The Campus Advisor surveyed 12,164 students over the past year about the cities they live in while attending university. The survey considered a range of factors including student friendliness, cost of living, nightlife, public transport, amenities, safety, and the opinions of current students.
