Copenhagen the world’s sixth best city for studying abroad – survey

Copenhagen is the world’s sixth best city for studying abroad, according to a new report study conducted by Helpful Professoran online resource for higher education.

The survey assessed a number of factors, including the quality and number of universities, the number of international students, the cost of living and perceived levels of freedom, safety and friendliness.

Double the average number
Copenhagen benefited from having four universities – the University of Copenhagen (KU), Copenhagen Business School, the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and the IT University of Copenhagen – which was two more than the survey average, although the Helpful Professor clarifies that KU is its only “top institution”.

The study assessed 1,300 universities in 339 cities in 85 countries, and Copenhagen was ranked seventh for friendliness, but failed to reach the top ten for safety or freedom. Usually the capital is considered unfriendly, but both liberal and safe!

One of the most environmentally friendly
“The city offers an excellent quality of life, ranking highly for both freedom and security. The city has a lot to offer from picturesque views along winding canals to colorful street markets filled with local delicacies. There is amazing architecture around every corner and the nightlife is vibrant and offers something for everyone,” ventured Helpful Professor.

“If all that wasn’t enough, Copenhagen is also one of the most environmentally friendly cities in Europe – so you can feel good about your choice to study abroad!”

Montreal number one
Montreal finished at the top, followed by Tokyo, Vancouver, Glasgow and Melbourne. A further four cities then tied with Copenhagen to complete the top ten: Liverpool, Manchester, Munich and Sydney.

The UK had the most cities in the top 20 with five, followed by Canada and the Netherlands with three each.
