Now on to the Top 3: After an incredible, late push by the underdogs, we had an emphatic finale to our Uniplaces Best Erasmus City Award. And now, we can announce the winner!
3rd place: Lisbon
After having spent most of the competition in second place, the capital of Portugal fell to third place on the final stretch. Nonetheless, Lisbon can still be proud of being the 3rd best place for Erasmus in the world!
2nd place: Oulu
The underdog almost pulled off a miracle! After having been nowhere to be seen for most of the competition, Oulu put in an extraordinary shift to relentlessly rise through the ranks and climb all the way to 2nd. For a few days, they even topped the rankings, but our winner then gathered its troops and pulled away.
And the winner is:
Congratulations Madrid! You are the Uniplaces Best Erasmus City!
We always knew Madrid would be a strong contender, and lo and behold, they’ve won it! The Spanish capital had been lurking in the shadows for a while, but in one single night, they stormed to the top and never looked back – even after Oulu made them sweat a bit.
So everyone doing an Erasmus in Madrid, you can now rub it in everyone else’s face: “I studied in the Best Erasmus City!”
Thank you to every single one of you who participated and voted to help your city become the Best Erasmus City!
Thanks for reading this post! We hope to see you soon, coming back for more.
