The University of Luxembourg

The University's teaching features  the availability of an abundance of high-quality  programmes. Welcome to the University of Luxembourg. Created in 2003, it is the only public university in the Grand Duchy. It comprises three faculties, located in different parts of the country:

A European university


The University of Luxembourg  is European through and through: located at the heart of the European Union, it is by nature multilingual and international (53% of students are from outside the Grand Duchy). The programmes are either  bi- or trilingual ( French, German, English) or entirely held in English. Moreover, some bachelor and master programmes are bi- or even tri-national, involving neighbouring countries.

The popularity of the young university is based on research - especially in the fields of computer science, biomedicine, European law and the educational sciences - and on its interdisciplinary approach. In addition, the close collaboration with the country's financial institutions and companies allows students to immerse themselves in the professional sector from the very beginning of their studies.
