Queretaro, Tecnologico de Monterrey
The Tecnológico de Monterrey is a Mexican private educational institution that was founded in 1943. At the present time it has campuses distributed throughout the country, and academic centres in Mexico and other Latin American countries.
Students who attend the Tecnologico de Monterrey will be based at the Querétaro campus.
The exchange agreement between King's and Tecnológico de Monterrey allows for up to 3 Full Year Equivalent (FYE) places for each institution. This equates to 3 students going for a full academic year OR 6 students for a single semester OR a mixture of the two.
Eligibility for King's students
Important: Final decision on students' study abroad application to their host institution rests entirely with that host institution. Students outside of the department of Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies must also meet their departments’ academic requirements to obtain final departmental approval to study abroad. It is usually at least a 60% average prior to departure, however this can vary amongst departments. Students should double check with their Study Abroad Tutor if they are unsure of their academic requirements.
King’s students that wish to study abroad at this institution should check the ‘Undergraduate options by department’ page to see if this institution is indeed an option for them.
Students who are allocated to Tec de Monterrey are strongly advised to book direct, return flights to Mexico as they may not be allowed to travel via certain countries (including USA) without a return ticket.
Estimated living costs
Please research the estimated living costs for this country. A reminder that King's students on exchange are not required to pay tuition fees to the host university, but you may incur administrative and/or orientation fees at the host. There may also be mandatory insurance costs, and transcripts may incur a fee.
Please also note that, if required, student visas often require applicants to supply evidence of financial support throughout the duration of the study abroad programme. Sometimes this will mean showing financial evidence for a specific amount, so please pay attention to the advice on this from the host institution.
