Whether you are an international student looking to come over or a domestic student who can’t make up their mind where to go, you’ve come to the right place. America and Canada are absolutely writhed with a huge variety of amazing cities that you can spend your time studying in as they’re full of fun activities, cultural activities, and great job opportunities. So, where should you go? Well, this article is going to look into more detail at the top urban destinations available to students in both North America and Canada.

Montreal, Canada 

Montreal makes the top of this list for a number of reasons, including its academic education, the outstanding quality of life that students are met with when they come here, and the multicultural environment that makes everyone feel welcome and the energetic vibe. It is a clear representation of culture, represented in the activities available to students and the mixture of languages spoken (French and English).

There is also plenty for mature students to do as Montreal is home to a range of bars and the Casino de Montreal, which is a casino on the Notre Dame Island in the borough of Ville-Marie. It is one of the largest casinos in Canada, and so is one of the perfect places to go to unwind after a long day of studying. That being said, you might be too swept up in your studies to find time to go, in which case you could always gamble online with the best online casino Canada has to offer.

Boston, USA 

Boston is considered one of the most intellectual capitals in the entire world and is referred to by many as the “Athens of America.” The city places an emphasis on the quality of education and career success in its environs. Its doors are wide open to international students as it hosted 47,895 of them back in 2015. It is also filled with history, so you will be able to immerse yourself in it.

Contrast to a lot of other American cities, Boston is one of the most compact, clean and easy to explore cities in the country. There are also reduced levels of crime in Boston, and it also has one of the most powerful city economies in the world, meaning there are plenty of job opportunities once you graduate.

Vancouver, Canada 

There are over 10,000 foreign students from 80 different countries studying in Vancouver, making it one of the most diverse and culturally inclusive cities to study at in the world. If you are looking for somewhere more diverse, then you should consider heading over there. To give you an idea of the diversity, over 50% of the population do not speak English as a first language.

Not only this but there is plenty of entertainment in Vancouver that comes in the form of night clubs, theaters and music festivals. It is also very popular and renowned for its range of snow sports, so on your days off, you can head out and hit the slopes.
