Moscow came in thirty-eighth place in a global ranking of the world's best city for students in 2013 and 2014.

The study, conducted by Quacquarelli Symonds, selected 50 out of 98 cities with populations of over 250,000 and two or more institutions on QS's list of the world's best universities.

The top 50 cities were then ranked according to the quality of the city's universities, their popularity among employers, the variety of students, quality of life and affordability.

The Russian capital shares its thirty-eighth place with Los Angeles and Adelaide, the same threesome that tied for thirty-seventh place in 2012.

Paris, London, and Singapore topped the list, which also saw Sydney and Zurich make the top five.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
