London home of such institutions as Imperial, UCL, LSE, Kings would be on any list, it is also home to the vast British Library on top of it's public library system and is home to numerous other educational institutions. The percentage of people with higher qualifications in London is also very high and London along with Oxford and Cambridge form what is known as the Golden Triangle in terms of academic research.

The big pb with these NUTS comparisons is that for example comparing Inner London divided by 2 (West or East) to Ile de France (12M inhabitants) is a nonsense (I take the example of France because I have elements of comparison that I know). Same for Rhone-Alpes, 6.5M people, surface of Belgium, how can you compare this to the core of London (3.5M inhabitants / 2 ), that's a little bit weird...

Here is the list with NUTS from Eurostat: Eurostat - Tables, Graphs and Maps Interface (TGM) graph
We can see all the cities, it's better. There are unexpected results... See Alsace in front of Stuttgart, I'm really skeptical !

They have the tendancy to compare apples and carotts but it's better than nothing

Whatever way you look at it, whether using the THE figures or EU Eurostat figures, London (along with Paris) is still one of the most educated cities in Europe, indeed in the world and has a number of superb universities and other institutions, as well as being part of the education and research intensive Golden Triangle.

IMO it depends on the scale and the area. I'm not sure in la Goutte d'Or in the north of Paris, the rate of graduated people is skyrocketing compare to inner Lyon...
But yeah, in big cities, there are the best schools and most educated people. Specially in very heavy weights such as London or Paris (compare to the size of their respective country)
