Collaborating with Mexico: policy, context, opportunities

International
7 June 2019

In July 2018 Mexico elected a new President, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, heralding the most important change in Mexico´s political landscape in the last 50 years.

In this context, a UUKi delegation of 11 UK HEIs travelled to Mexico to better understand the new administration's emerging agenda for higher education and to scope potential for strengthening collaboration between UK and Mexican higher education institutions. The UUKi delegation spent three days in Mexico City and two days in Queretaro. The delegation was organised with support from ANUIES (National Association of Universities and Higher Education Institutions of the Mexican Republic), British Embassy, British Council and DIT.

This Information Note provides an overview of recent developments, and opportunities and challenges for UK-Mexico collaboration. An overview of key funding opportunities and other useful resources is included at Annexe 1.
