On The September 15, 2020

L’Étudiant magazine’s 2020-2021 rankings placed Lyon as the second best city for student quality of life for the second year in a row.

L'Étudiant magazine’s list of student cities is based on several criteria: attractiveness, training offer, student life, lifestyle, employment opportunities, etc.

Lyon takes second place after Toulouse, with Rennes in third. They are followed by Montpellier, Nantes and Grenoble.

An excellent award for the city of Lyon, which was already named the “Second best student city in France” in July 2020 by the new Figaro Étudiant ranking.

This second place ranking is a result of the collaborative efforts of the Université de Lyon, the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region, the Lyon and Saint-Étienne metropolitan areas, and the City of Lyon.
