Collaboration on tips on money as an international student

The Manchester Mexican Society has always been, since its foundation, closely related to students. We were approached by people from TransferGo, a company which allows for money to be sent from UK to Mexico in a swift and cheap manner, in order for us to give some financial advice for a blog article about what to expect regarding money when arriving to a new country.

The article is now ready and published at the blog of TransferGo, and not only was the Manchester Mexican Society featured, but a couple of other student societies around the United Kingdom as well. Since the number of Mexican students has exponentially increased in Manchester because of the EPS-CONACyT agreement in recent years, we consider these tips a must-read for any potential student for this program, who most likely found our website searching for information about Mexicans in Manchester.

The link for this article is right here.

We’d like to take the opportunity to remind our visitors that tomorrow, June 9th, 2016, our first event with the new committee will take place at CHILANGO MANCHESTER, at 7:00 pm. There is an event announcement in facebook right here.

Chilango Manchester and the MMxS have come to an agreement and all our members and visitors tomorrow will get 20% off. This discount will continue to any member that has our official membership. Get in touch with us at or pay your membership through the University of Manchester Student Union website (if you’re a student at the University of Manchester) to get it.
