"It's evident that the big urban centres around the world remain huge magnets for both international and domestic students.

"On average, students pay more to live in these cities, but that's not to say that there aren't more affordable options available.

"Cities with larger supplies of purpose-built student accommodation tend to be, on average, more affordable than cities that are under supplied.
