QS Best Student Cities ranking: =90th

Located in the north-east of the US, Baltimore is the largest city in the state of Maryland. Known for being a major seaport, Baltimore is affectionately referred to as ‘Charm City’ and the ‘Land of Pleasant Living’, amongst other nicknames. With a rich history, the city exhibits examples from each era of architecture over more than two centuries, including the Washington Monument, and it was here that the US National Anthem ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ was written in 1814 by Francis Scott Key.

In recent years, the city has gained global attention as the setting of popular US television show The Wire. While the TV series explores some of the darker aspects of city life, there’s much more to Baltimore, including many interesting museums, trendy shops and ethnic restaurants, spread across 72 designated historic districts.

Among the top universities in Baltimore is Johns Hopkins University, which is ranked 17th in the QS World University Rankings® 2018, and is one of the best medical schools in the world. Just outside the city center is the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, which is also ranked at international level.

Employment is Baltimore has been positively influenced by these institutions, with almost a quarter of jobs in the Baltimore region found in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, in part attributed to its extensive undergraduate and graduate schools.
