Information for Mexican students wishing to study a postgraduate programme at Cranfield University

Cranfield University has a vibrant international community and is becoming a very popular destination for a growing number of Mexican students. We currently have 18 students from Mexico studying with us.

Cranfield has an agreement with CONACyT (Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnologia) which provides competitive scholarships for Mexican students to study a postgraduate degree. Cranfield offers a bursary to each successful CONACyT scholar and in addition to the scholarship, CONACyT award a monthly stipend.

As an exclusively postgraduate university with a student to staff ratio - 7:1 that is one of the best for any university in the UK and the world, Cranfield represents a unique offering for Mexican students thinking of studying in the UK. Mexican students at Cranfield benefit from excellent teaching delivered by our world-renowned academics, state-of-the-art facilities and real-life industry projects with leading global organisations. Cranfield provides a professional working environment but our Mexican students also enjoy campus life and get involved in a wide variety of clubs, societies and associations.

Cranfield has excellent links with CONACyT and other Mexican sponsors. We have strong links with a number of the top Mexican universities including Instituto Politecnico Nacional, Tecnologico de Monterrey, Cinvestav, Universidad de la Americas Puebla, Universidad Autonoma Chapingo to name but a few. Cranfield representatives make regular visits to Mexico and work closely with agent representative Anglo Latino Education Partnership. We also have strong links with the Mexican Embassy here in the UK.
