MEXICO CITY, August 29, 2016 – The U.S. Embassy through its advising center EducationUSA and the U.S.-Mexico Commission for Education and Cultural Exchanges (COMEXUS) hosted the fourth annual academic mobility fair at the Hotel Krystal Grand Reforma 1 on Saturday August 27 to showcase all sorts of academic opportunities—from intensive English language courses to post-graduate degrees. Twenty five U.S. universities were present.
COMEXUS Student Mobility Fair coming to Merida, Yucatan next Thursday September 1st.
“Student exchanges are at the forefront of building the future of the bilateral relationship and a more integrated North America,” said Ambassador Jacobson. “Presidents Obama and Peña Nieto realize the importance of education, and are committed to turning our region into a world leader, with a workforce that learns, produces and prospers together. During academic year 2015-2016 over 17,000 Mexican students were enrolled in U.S. schools and we are looking forward to sustained growth in those numbers, which ultimately mean more Mexicans and Americans getting to know each other, cooperating, dispelling myths and establishing durable relationships.”
Along with Ambassador Jacobson, Juan Jose Serrato Velasco, Coordinator General of Advisors for the Undersecretary of Higher Education at SEP, and Martha Navarro Albo, Director General for Technical and Scientific Cooperation at the Agencia Mexicana de Cooperación Internacional para el Desarrollo (AMEXCID) participated in the ribbon cutting ceremony.
More academic mobility fairs will be hosted by the Embassy throughout the country:
- Aguascalientes (August 29)
- Leon (August 30)
- Merida (September 1)
- Veracruz (September 3).
