Grenoble among the top 3 cities for the quality of student life for more than 10 years

Student life

The new edition of the ranking of cities for the quality of student life has just been published by L’Étudiant. In 2017-2018, Grenoble was ranked 2nd, a result coherent with the past, since the capital of the Alps has been within the top 3 for more than 10 years.


44 urban areas of more than 8,000 students are surveyed each year by l’Etudiant. They are evaluated and ranked according to 5 criteria: attractiveness, education, student life, quality of life, employment. This year, Lyon is ranked first, just before Grenoble and Toulouse (2nd ex-aequo).  

The assets of Grenoble: quality of life and PhD

Grenoble comes in first place before Lyon and Toulouse by the proportion of PhD students and international students (Erasmus). The capital of the Alps stands out by the density of its education offer, in progress with respect to 2016.
Regarding the quality of life, Grenoble is first ex-aequo on the criteria of mobility, enjoys more sunshine than its competitors, and provides better housing opportunities.

Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, an excellent region for studying

With Lyon in 1st position, Grenoble 2nd and Clermont 14th, it is the second year in a row that three cities from the region Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes appear in the top 15.
The excellent ranking of Lyon and Grenoble, both laureates of the IDEX, as well as of Clermont, awarded the I-Site in 2017, highlights the dynamism and attractiveness of the region Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, both in terms of scientific excellence and quality of life.
In 2016, Grenoble came 1st.
