Montreal has dethroned Paris to take the title of world’s best student city for 2017.

After enjoying a five-year streak, the City of Light was knocked off its perch by a different French-speaking city in the fifth edition of the QS Best Student Cities Ranking, which classifies the world’s top 100 student destinations.

The reasons for Paris’s fall and Montreal’s rise are many: Montreal is emerging from a period of economic stagnation and looking ahead to positive growth for 2017, analysts note.

Likewise, the city’s innovation and dynamism are being noticed around the world.
Last year, Montreal was named the world’s most intelligent city by global research think tank the Intelligent Community Forum.
