The University of Luxembourg, founded in 2003, is a multilingual, internationally oriented research university. It offers a very special framework to students and researchers alike, thanks to the proximity of the institutions of the European Union, the Luxembourg financial centre and the attractive national job market, but also thanks to the outstanding multilingual situation of the Grand Duchy.

The multicultural flair of the country is an experience lived each day on campus. Students come from around 107 different countries, lecturers from 25. Furthermore, there are exchange agreements with over 60 universities around the world. Whether it be English-French or German-French, many degree programmes are bilingual. Several Master’s degrees taught exclusively in English are also on offer.


The University of Luxembourg aspires to be one of Europe’s most highly regarded universities with a distinctly international, multilingual and interdisciplinary character. It fosters the cross-fertilisation of research and teaching, is relevant to its country, is known worldwide for its research and teaching in targeted areas, and becomes an innovative model for contemporary European Higher Education. The University’s core asset is its well connected academic staff which attracts motivated, talented and creative students and young researchers who enjoy taking up challenges and develop into visionary thinkers able to shape society.


The University of Luxembourg, a small-sized institution with an international reach, aims at excellence in research and education. In a reduced number of research fields identified by its successive strategic plans, its ambition is to be among the world's top universities. The University intends to be innovative, centred on research, primarily interested in the quality of the structure it offers to its students, its teachers and its researchers and attentive to the needs of the society around it. It contributes to turning out discerning and independent personalities with strong potential for action in research, innovation and in society.
