The University of Glasgow’s first Mexican student, Francis Carillo, graduated in 1842 and we have welcomed students from Mexico ever since. Currently, we have 80 Mexican students at the University and we are delighted to welcome more every year.
We have an agreement with CONACyT, and will award a 30% discount on tuition fees to all students supported by them.
As well as Glasgow’s historic reputation as a prestigious research-led university, students from Mexico are also attracted by the city’s diverse cultural heritage and renowned architecture. In addition to a wealth of events held by our International Student Support team, our Mexican students are also invited to join the University’s Hispanic Society.
The University of Glasgow will consider students that have completed the IB. Applications with 36 points will be considered for direct admission to most schools. Please note that there are certain exceptions.
For Masters degrees we are looking for a minimum GPA of 8.0 (Bien) from 10 in a relevant subject area.

Students who choose to be counselled by an agency should expect the following standards of service:
- Representatives will support students throughout the application process, providing advice and assistance in the preparation/submission of documents. It is, however, the applicant who must remain ultimately responsible for their account and the management of communications.
- Representatives will have full access to student data contained within the application form and may manage a student application by discussing all aspects of the application with the University of Glasgow.
- Representatives should be honest and accurate in communicating information about the University to the student and vice versa. At no time should representatives disseminate false or misleading information to the student or to the University.
- Representatives will conduct themselves with fairness and integrity at all times and are subject to a rigorous selection and ongoing training process by the University of Glasgow.
- Representatives are paid by the University for their services and will not pass on charges to prospective students.
We would be happy to welcome you to our historic main campus in the heart of Glasgow, where we host open days and campus tours for you to experience our University in person. For more information, go to: http://www.gla.ac.uk/about/visit/.
