Maintaining its place among the elite top 10 most livable cities in the world (The Economist, London) for the past ten years is an outstanding feat for this cosmopolitan city of two million people. This ranking measures the quality of life, healthcare, stability, culture, infrastructure and significantly, education in the top cities of the world. This is underscored by Perth, Australia being ranked in the top 25 student cities in the inaugural QS Top Universities Ranking. Getting around this great student city is made easier by the generous 40% discount on public transport for students.
