Latin America Office

Door opener for you as a student in Latin America

To ease the application process for our international Master’s degree programs, RWTH International Academy established a representative office abroad for qualified students. Due to its location, we used to call it “Mexico Office”. Now, as we see that we have people who are interested in our study programs in various Spanish-speaking country, we would like all of you to feel invited to come and therefore changed it to “Latin America Office”. This Office is your direct link to RWTH Aachen University.

Our highly estimated cooperation partners at Instituto Tecnológico de Monterrey (ITESM) provide the office space at their campus Monterrey and our representative Melanie travels to other universities on the continent to establish and strengthen cooperations. You are kindly invited to write an e-mail and make an appointment for counselling online or to take advantage of her presence in your country and meet in person.
