Award details

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).

Award value

As part of the agreement, King's College London will offer CONACYT funded students a tuition fee discount of 30% for up to 1 (one) year for Masters students and up to 3 (three) years for PhD students. The 30% discount is a new rate, effective for new scholars joining King's from the 2018-19 intake.

Note that, students who hold more than one loan or scholarship from Mexican sponsors will only be entitled to one tuition fee discount/waiver from King's College London, at the highest applicable rate.

As part of the agreement, CONACYT will offer funds towards tuition fees and maintenance for 1 year to Masters Students and for 3 years to PhD students. The value of funding offered by CONACYT will vary from student to student and is based on individual assessment.

Please be aware that, university fees are subject to inflation each year but funding offered through CONACYT does not increase with inflation. Scholars must therefore be aware and prepared to cover any fees not covered by this scheme.
