Sydney #1 for students
A new survey has ranked Sydney as the world's most popular city to study in, ahead of 83 other cities including London and New York.
Figures from the federal government show that Sydney is home to an estimated 50,000 international students studying at the city's universities, with another 50,000 studying vocational and English courses.
Sydney lord mayor Clover Moore said the council's figures showed about 35,000 international students studied on campuses in the City of Sydney and more than 10,000 lived in the local government area.
"Sydney offers first-class education, professional experiences, cutting-edge research opportunities, a strong economy and a lifestyle that is unmatched.
"It is no wonder so many students choose to live here."
More than 300,000 international students are studying across the country, the most recent figures from Universities Australia show, with the top five countries being China, India, South Korea, Malaysia and Vietnam.
