London has come top in a new survey of popular worldwide student destinations.
Research from Student.com examined 426 popular destinations and discovered demand is highest in the UK’s capital.
Other cities that proved popular for students included a number in the UK - Liverpool, Nottingham, Sheffield, Birmingham and Glasgow.
“Our data indicates that there is still significant interest in the UK as a destination for international students, particularly from Asia and Europe. However, this is not an excuse to become complacent,” said Luke Nolan, chief executive officer of Student.com.
“With global competition for international students increasing year after year, the UK should do everything it can to support the internationalisation objectives of its universities and maintain its attractiveness as a study destination,” he added.
The study also looked at how far students travel for their accommodation and last year, they combined a total of more than 95 million kilometres to study.
