CONACYT scholarships

CONACYT (Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología) offers scholarships to Mexican students enrolling on postgraduate courses. The scholarships will fund study in both taught and research courses, in key priority areas (as specified by CONACYT).

We have a co-funding partnership agreement (convenio) with CONACYT for all of our courses, which means that the scholarship you receive will cover most of the tuition fee and living expenses for eligible taught and research courses.

You will not have to pay the money back to CONACYT, however, you will be required to return to work in Mexico after your period of study in the UK.

How to apply

You will need to have an unconditional offer to study at Cardiff University before you can apply for a CONACYT scholarship.

Once you have your unconditional offer, you can apply directly to CONACYT. CONACYT awards scholarships on merit and the minimum ‘promedio’ required by applicants is 8.0.

For scholarship application dates and deadlines, please see the CONACYT website. For more information on this scholarship, please contact Patrick Cosh on
