Mexico is home to 125 million citizens and the world’s 11th largest economy, second only to Brazil in Latin America, which some analysts predict to overtake in the next ten years.
The growing Mexican economy is increasingly enabling students (30,000 annually) to undertake their academic studies in another country; combined with scholarships that have been made available for students to study abroad by the Mexican government.
The most popular destinations for Mexican students to study abroad are usually Spain, the United States, France, Germany and Canada. With the UK and the rest of mainland Europe seeing a rise in the number of Mexican students.
FPP has been organizing its biannual fairs in Mexico’s most thriving markets since 2003, quickly establishing itself as the country’s largest fair organizer. In 2016, over 30,000 pre-screened Mexican students met with 150 exhibitors from 20 countries, at 8 student fairs.

Why Recruit in Mexico?

Mexico is home to 125 million citizens and the world’s 11th largest economy, 2nd only to Brazil in Latin America - who some analysists predict to overtake in the next 10 years.

There is a young population, with 27% aged 15-24. Just under 10% of the total population access tertiary education, which is certain to grow. Currently around 30,000 Mexican students travel abroad to study annually.

Mexico’s GDP is currently at US$1.29 trillion, and this is expected to continue to grow at a higher rate than the average for Latin America. Mexico spends 5.2% of its GDP on public education.

Why are Mexican students going abroad?

The growing Mexican economy is increasingly enabling students to undertake their academic studies in another country; combined with scholarships that have been made available for students to study abroad by the Mexican government.

Students are also choosing to study abroad because access to degree programmes at domestic universities that meet ‘international standards’ is not easy, combined with recent increases in domestic university fees which has made studying abroad seem less of an expense.

The most popular destinations for Mexican students to study abroad are usually Spain, the United States, France, Germany and Canada. With the UK and the rest of mainland Europe seeing a rise in the number of Mexican students.

What our clients say

Watch what our clients say
"FPP is not only the best education fair organizer, but is also an important strategic partner for us. They clearly prioritise customer satisfaction and since we first met them 12 years ago, they have constantly outdone themselves in organizing and managing education fairs.
Since 2014 we have been hiring FPP to organize our own event - AC EXPO - the largest education fair in Brazil for students willing to go to Australian and New Zealand. It has been a real pleasure to work with them and the results have been incontestable. I have no doubt that education providers may accomplish very good ROI after an FPP fair."

Vinicius Barreto

"We have been working with FPP for 8 years. It has been really good working with them, the organisation and quality of students is very good. We recommend FPP and EDUEXPOS."
