Further Information

FIDERH offer affordable loans to Mexican students to finance their graduate studies at the University of Dundee. If you are applying to study in any of our academic schools, with the exception of Medicine, Dentistry and Nursing, then you can submit a loan application. You need to have an unconditional offer letter from the University before you can apply to FIDERH, so make sure you have this before applying.

Successful applicants of this programme will use the loan to cover the full or partial costs of tuition fees, living costs and medical insurance. The value of the loan is up to $200,000, however the amount you are awarded is determined by FIDERH. If you have been awarded another University of Dundee scholarship and are successful with your FIDERH loan application, you will not be eligible to receive both – please get in contact with us if this applies to you.
