There are many cities in Europe that have offered this active student exchange program for almost 30 years, so it may be difficult to decide on one. To give you a hand, today we want to show you the top 10 of the ranking prepared by Uniplaces on the best Erasmus cities. We are referring to the winners of their annual Best Erasmus City Awards , for which they have collected some 26,000 student votes. How could it be otherwise, Spain is very well represented on the list. Do you want to discover it? Well, you just have to join us!
According to the study carried out by Uniplaces, Madrid is the city that European students prefer to do Erasmus, something that does not surprise us at all, since in the Spanish capital it is possible to find an extensive artistic , cultural and leisure offer. We must also highlight the good climate and the good reception that the university students have.
Second place goes to Oulu, a Finnish city on the northwest coast, more than 500 kilometers from Helsinki . The students have valued both the quality of life of the place as well as the outdoor activities and the educational system. Of course, it is a somewhat expensive city.
In third position we find Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, which according to students is a cheap city. In addition, here university students can enjoy a great quality of life, a varied cultural offer and a lot of nightlife. Of course, university students have not valued the quality of education positively.
Vilnius, the capital and most populous city of Lithuania, is this year in the fourth position in the Uniplaces ranking. What the students who have voted for this place stand out most is how cheap it is and its lively nightlife. On the other hand, when it comes to shopping and food, the university students are not very happy.
In fifth position we find another Spanish city. It is Seville, the capital of Andalusia , which university students value for its quality of life and for being a cheap destination. In addition, it is a place with a great cultural offer and a fairly lively nightlife.
The students who have participated in the study also positively value the quality of life in Porto, which this year is in sixth place in the ranking . The cultural offer and the nightlife are also things that attract university students, in addition to being an inexpensive destination.
We return to Spain to tell you about Barcelona, which is in seventh position. How could it be otherwise, what the students of Barcelona stand out the most is their quality of life, in addition to their nightlife. Of course, according to university students, it is not a destination as cheap as Seville.
In eighth place is Budapest, capital of Hungary, a city that stands out for its nightlife. In addition, students consider that it is a fairly cheap destination. What they do not value so positively is the quality of education .
Prague, czech republic
Prague is in ninth place in the ranking thanks, among other things, to its lively nightlife, its cultural offer and its quality of life. In addition, it is also a cheap city.
Finally, we have to talk about Regensburg, which closes the top 10 in the ranking. What the university students of this city located in the state of Bavaria value most is its quality of life, although it is not a cheap destination.
