London has been voted the second best city in the world to be a student.
It just missed out to Paris, which took the top spot in the survey by QS Best Student Cities.
It's the second year in a row the French capital has been voted number one.

The 'student mix' category considers the student community, including the ratio and volume of international students.
The 'employer activity' category looks at which cities are thought by employers to produce the best graduates.
The 'quality of living' category is based on the Mercer Quality of Living Survey and the Global and World Cities index.
The 'affordability' category is based on cost of tuition fees, the Big Mac Index (retail prices), the iPad Index (how much an iPad costs) and the Mercer Cost of Living Index.
Tributes to the late Nobel Prize winning author Doris Lessing have poured in from friends and colleagues, who have heralded her as "completely inspirational" and "one of the great writers of our age."
– Nicholas Pearson, her editor at HarperCollins
Doris has been called a visionary and, to be in her company, which was a privilege I had as her editor towards the end of her writing life, was to experience something of that. Even in very old age she was always intellectually restless, reinventing herself, curious about the changing world around us, always completely inspirational. We'll miss her hugely.
– Nobel Prize Academy
[She was an] epicist of the female experience, who with scepticism, fire and visionary power has subjected a divided civilisation to scrutiny.
– Charlie Redmayne, HarperCollins' UK chief executive
Doris Lessing was one of the great writers of our age. She was a compelling storyteller with a fierce intellect and a warm heart who was not afraid to fight for what she believed in. It was an honour for HarperCollins to publish her.
Doris Lessing's long time friend and agent has paid tribute to her, saying she had a "fascinating and original mind".
– Jonathan Clowes
She was a wonderful writer with a fascinating and original mind; it was a privilege to work for her and we shall miss her immensely.
The Nobel Prize winning writer is survived by her daughter Jean and granddaughters Anna and Susannah.
