University of Luxembourg

The University

Founded in 2003, the University of Luxembourg , the only public university in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, has succeeded, in just a few years, in rising to the 25th place in the world for young universities. Multilingual, international and research-focused, it also defines itself as a modern institution with a human face.

  • 1,420 academic staff (including PhD students, postdoctoral researchers, research assistants and others) support some 270 professors, assistant professors and lecturers
  • Close to the European institutions and the Luxembourg financial centre

Three faculties  

Three campuses

The University is present on three sites: the Belval Campus, the Kirchberg Campus and the Limpertsberg Campus.

Multilingual and international

The University of Luxembourg is one of the few universities in the world to offer bilingual or even trilingual (French, German, English) bachelor programmes. A certificate attesting to your level of language knowledge will be required to access the courses. The master programmes are mostly in English.

Internationally oriented, the university makes one semester of mobility compulsory during the Bachelor's degree. 

Focus on research and innovation

Encouraged at national level, innovation must be the driving force behind sustainable socio-economic development. The University of Luxembourg supports this strategy through its commitment to position itself as an international leader in specific research areas, provide high quality interdisciplinary teaching programmes and strengthen its economy and contribute to the transformation of Luxembourg society.
