Seoul has been named the second best city for students in the world-Chosun Ilbo: Daily News from South Korea

Seoul is affiliated with Munich, the second largest city in the world for students.

Nonetheless, London after the super-expensive Brexit topped the list.

The Best Student City Rankings by Quacquarelli Symonds in the UK on Wednesday rated 140 cities with 1,300 universities from the QS World University Rankings based on factors such as affordability, desirability, and employer activity.

Seoul has achieved high scores in employment activities with 23 universities in the capital city included in the university rankings and more employment opportunities. It also worked well at an affordable price, as living costs are lower than in major cities in Europe and the United States.
