Application process

 

If you are studying at an accredited university and are willing to spend one or more semesters at IBERO Mexico City as an exchange student, we shall be pleased to welcome you. As nominated and accepted student from one of our partner universities, you won’t pay any tuition or application fee. If your institution doesn’t have an exchange agreement with us, we can consider your application as a study abroad student. Study abroad students pay application and tuition fees according to the number of courses they wish to take.

Students from one of our partner universities are required to hand in the following documents. The application and the documentation should be sent by the international office of your home institution. All the documents can be sent scanned by email:
