Finland is the happiest country in the world.

This year's World Happiness Report has been released, naming Finland as the world's happiest country in 2018.

The report by the UN ranks 156 countries by their happiness levels, and 117 countries by the happiness of their immigrants.

Finland is joined in the top 10 of the list by all of its fellow Nordic countries, including Iceland which recently became the first country to enforce equal pay for women and men.

How did the United Kingdom do? I hear you ask. Well, actually, not too badly in the grand scheme of things. The UK sits in 19th place, unhappier than countries including Germany and the USA, but happier than the likes of France and Spain.


So, if you fancy getting your graduate career off the ground in one of the 10 happiest countries in the world, here's where you need to go.
