You are tempted to study at the University of Luxembourg, but you need more information in order to make a final decision? You are still figuring out which course to study? You are already a student or a professor and you don't know the campus Belval yet? The open day of the University of Luxembourg are made for you!
On Saturday, 19 March 2016, the university campus Esch-Belval invites to a discovery day. It's the occasion to cast a look behind the scenes of the headquarters of the University at the 'Maison du Savoir' (House of Knowledge) and the 'Cité des Sciences'. Furthermore, the Open Door Day makes it possible to discover the new training programmes that will be available, of the Faculty of Language and Literature, Humanities, Arts and Education, of the Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance and of the Faculty of Science, Technology and Communication.
Information stalls are set up and several tutors, guidance counsellors, students and staff of the University of Luxembourg will be at the disposal of the visitors to answer their questions in personal interviews. Guided tours are organised, among others by the Luxembourg Center for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) and also in the student housings. Moreover, 'live' experimentations by biomedicine researchers of the Scienteens Lab on the topic 'Isolation of DNA on fruit' will be organised. The researchers of the 'National Centre of Excellence in Research on Parkinson's Disease' are part of the support programme this year.

- a complete three-year specialisation in English literature and linguistics in the 'Bachelor en Cultures Européennes';
- a new Master in theatre studies and interculturality ('Master in Theaterwissenschaft und Interkulturalität') in cooperation with the University of Trier;
- a new vocational Master for prospective secondary school teachers ('Master en Enseignement Secondaire') in German, French and Mathematics;
