Welcome to our website!
We are the Oxford Mexican Society.
If you are interested in Mexican culture, a Mexican student or professional living in Oxford, or a prospective student, you are most probably in the right place!
Our aim is to promote Mexican culture by organising academic, cultural and social events in the city of Oxford, UK. We are also able to provide informal advice on a number of matters relevant to prospective Mexican students interested in coming to Oxford University.
For over 7 years, we have been the official point of contact for all things Mexican in Oxford, as well as one of the University’s most active international societies. This has been possible thanks to the effort of many Mexican students that have studied at Oxford, where we endeavour to create a welcoming environment for our community.
We know going across the pond can be an overwhelming experience, but there’s no reason to face it alone! Whether you need advice on how to find a room to stay, or simply want to reach out to our friendly community, don’t be afraid to get in touch!
Some interesting facts:
- The University of Oxford has been named the best university in the world for three times in row by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings[2017, 2018, 2019].
- On average, there are about 60 Mexican students enrolled at the University every year. Most of us are pursuing graduate studies, roughly halved between one-year Masters and research degrees.
- About 25 new Mexican students come to Oxford every year. Many of them touch base with us prior to their arrival, and others do upon getting here!
