Choosing your post-secondary education isn't just about picking the best school. It's also about picking the right city because you're going to spend a lot of time living, working and playing outside of your future college or university campus.
A new ranking from Studee highlights some of the best cities in the world to be a student based on factors like cheap rent, fast internet, great food, safety and free speech laws.
They also looked at the cost of buying a MacBook, the number of people between 15 and 24 years old and top university rankings (obviously).
Tokyo topped the list with great marks across the board, including the very best food and a high population of young people.
Melbourne was number two and the first of four Australian cities in the top 10.
Canada had two cities in Quebec in the top 10, while the U.S. also had two entries and South Korea had one.
