Scholarships from the British Council for Study in Mexico

Mexico is a very popular tourist destination. One does not really consider it for study abroad. That said, it does have some very good universities, as is the perfect place to study such subjects as Central American history, or colonial history. As a result, the British Council has created several scholarship programmes for those either seeking to, or are studying in Mexico. Not only this, but seeing as many people who study abroad often end up staying in their host country, those looking to leave the UK in light of the Brexit might be interested in going to Mexico.

The scholarships are normally open only to postgraduate students. This means thatthey are aimed at those who are pursuing either a masters of doctorate degree, or those conducting research at either the graduate or post-doctoral level. This can be either for a semester or a full year. The British Council has managed to create these programmes in conjunction with the Mexican Agency for International Development, or AMEXCID.

The support is very generous. The monthly stipend is four times the minimum wage level in Mexico City, which is nearly USD 600. This is for those programmes which are undergraduate mobility scholaships, specialisations, masters degrees or research, and Spanish language and Mexican culture courses. Then one may receive five times the minimum wage level in Mexico City valued are around USD 700 for doctoral studies and research, as well as various post-doctoral fellowships and sub specialisations. Registration and tuition is also covered. Health insurance is also provided. Not only this, but airfares and transportation to the host institution are also provided. A scholar must apply for their visa themselves, however.

Some might be put off going to Mexico for several reasons. The main cause for concern for potential students is the ongoing conflict in the country related to gang and drug problems in the country. Several things must be considered when thinking about this. The first is the reality that one only gets in trouble in these terms because they are already involved in drug or gang activity. The second is that most of the issues are limited to those regions which border the United States of America. With that aside, it is a very good idea to consider going to Mexico to study. At least the weather will be more pleasant than in the UK.
