FIDERH scholarships

We have a partnership agreement with the Mexican Fund for Human Resources Development (FIDERH). This enables us to offer a 15 per cent tuition fee discount for all masters and PhD students from Mexico who are funded by FIDERH.


FIDERH, the federal trust managed by the Central Bank of Mexico, provides affordable loans to help Mexican students finance their studies either at home or abroad.

Find out more on the FIDERH website.

Applying for FIDERH funding

To apply for FIDERH funding, you must have an offer (unconditional, or conditional upon English language) to study at a UK university. To apply for your place at Southampton, submit a formal application and supporting documentation, including an IELTS or TEOFL certificate. Please be aware that to receive an unconditional offer, the IELTS or TEOFL requirement will also have to be met. Find out about applying for a postgraduate degree at Southampton.

When you have an offer of a university place, you can apply directly to FIDERH via their website.

Please note that students holding more than one loan or scholarship from Mexican sponsors will only be entitled to one tuition fee scholarship from the International Office, at the highest applicable rate.
