Although El Colegio de México does not hold an exchange agreement with Harvard University, for more than ten years students from both institutions have participated in exchange programs for a semester or a summer period.
The program is available for International Relations undergraduate students. There are usually two positions to be filled by the best students of each class. However, because there is no formal agreement, the number of positions is negotiated on a period-by-period basis.
Interested students participate in an internal contest. The Academic Exchange Office endorses them and then they have to complete a complicated online form that takes a considerable amount of time. It is recommended to ask help from students that have gone to Harvard in past years.
Language requirement: recent TOEFL requested.
