Program Details:


The Universidad Iberoamericana is located in Mexico City, the largest city in Mexico. Mexico City is an important center for politics, culture, education and finance. The city provides students with magnificent examples of the remains of the great Aztec Empire, the splendor of the colonial period, and an amazing cosmopolitan energy of modern Mexico. A source of national pride, modern museums of art, anthropology, history and archeology present the glories of Mexico's past.

If you're interested in seeing more photos, and learning more about the campus, be sure to visit their "impressions" page!



As an exchange student, you will directly enroll in the Universidad Iberoamericana.  You can enroll in nearly any courses offered in Ibero's 34 undergraduate programs, as well as courses in the Latin American Culture Program and intensive Spanish language courses.  While there are some courses taught in English, there are not enough courses available for students who do not have at least an intermediate level of Spanish. 

At Universidad Iberoamericana Mexico City 8 credit points will be converted to 3 Fordham credits. You must enroll in 40-48 credit points per semester.


The Universidad Iberoamericana highly recommends that you live with a local Mexican family. This will allow you to fully immerse yourself in the local culture, and see drastic improvement in your Spanish language skills.  Most of the homestay options are close to campus, in the western part of the city.  For more information regarding accommodation options, please visit the Ibero Accommodations webpage.


You must have a GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale in order to apply.

Before completing the Iberoamericana visiting student or exchange application, all Fordham Study Abroad Application requirements must be satisfied, including the Language Evaluation Form.


If you are interested in service learning, Iberoamericana has a great opportunity for exchange students called the Academic Social Engagement Program which is free of cost. This can be credit bearing or a volunteer experience.
