QS Best Student Cities ranking: =57th

Sweden’s second-largest city, this port town is renowned for its continental feel and its friendly locals, with a fairly large student population. Universities in Gothenburg include two institutions ranking in the top 300 of the QS World University Rankings® 2018: the Chalmers University of Technology (133rd) and the University of Gothenburg (joint 283rd).

There’s a great deal of culture to explore here, as the city hosts some of the largest annual events in Scandinavia, including the annual Gothenburg Film Festival and the Gothenburg Book Fair. In summer, a wide variety of music festivals are held in the city, while sports fans can enjoy the annual Gothia Cup, the world's largest football tournament in terms of the amount of participants.

Although not cheap, Gothenburg is more affordable than many other Swedish cities, and has plenty of pubs and bars. It’s proved a hit with its students, claiming a position in the top 50 for desirability and student view, two of the indicators used to compile the QS Best Student Cities ranking.
