Website - 88 nationalities. Three languages. One university.

The University of Luxembourg, short, is more than just another university among many. The concept that builds on is in many points unique and certainly does justice to the small country located between Belgium, France and Germany. Research and education meet the highest international standards and courses are taught in three languages: English, German and French. Founded in 2003 and thus one of the youngest universities within the European Union, has focused on the Bologna system from the beginning and implemented a well balanced offer of Bachelor and Master’s programmes in all fields of studies.

Extensive training offer – Partnerships all around the globe

Only six years after the university's foundation, there are now eleven Bachelor and 20 Master’s programmes on offer, with a possibility to carry on with a PhD in many disciplines. Furthermore, worldwide partnerships and exchange programmes are on top of’s agenda. Whoever completes a Bachelor in Luxembourg will not get around mobility: each graduate has to spend at least one semester abroad. At the same time the university is a real multicultural melting pot: 4500 students from 88 countries and professors originating from 20 different countries make currently a “proportion of foreigners” of 50 per cent.

International flair also beyond the campus

Luxembourg is a very international country (International geht es in Luxemburg jedoch auch außerhalb der Universität zu). The city accommodates numerous European Institutions, among others the European Court of Justice and the European Investment Bank, and is one of the leading financial centres worldwide. Students benefit from this situation in many ways: practitioners from various domains complete the theoretical study offer and make a university which meets the requirements of our time. The combination of theory and practice particularly shows on the basis of research units, active in many academic areas, as for example the recently established research centre “Security and Trust” (SnT), which dedicates itself to IT-security.

A personal touch and social responsibility

One of the many advantages appreciated by students is the personal ambiance. It is easy to have the overlook over the university; everyone knows everyone else on campus and the professors are easy to reach. Many courses take place in form of seminars, which encourages the active participation of students.

It is thus hardly surprising that most of the students do feel quite comfortable in Luxembourg and that they see as their “multilingual university”, as the slogan says of the institution. This “well-being effect” and the simultaneous excellency of teaching will be improved in the coming years, thanks to the university’s clear acknowledgment of sustainable development. The university is member of the International Sustainable Campus Network, which aims at the improvement of teaching methods and university infrastructures. Considering all this, one can be sure that those six first years of the University of Luxembourg are only the beginning of a long success story.
