University of Luxembourg – Multilingual. Personalised. Connected.
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 100 different countries, researchers from 60. Furthermore, there are exchange agreements with over 50 universities around the world. Whether it be English-French or German-French, many degree programmes are bilingual. Several Master degrees taught exclusively in English are also on offer.
The 6,200 students may choose between degrees to be obtained from
- the Faculty of Science, Technology and Communication,
- the Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance,
- the Faculty of Language and Literature, Humanities, Arts and Education.
Research is focused on themes such as the
- International finance,
- Secure and reliable ICT systems and services,
- systems biomedicine,
- European law and business law,
- education and learning in a multilingual environment.
International research teams and some 430 postgraduates work within the faculties themselves, the Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT) and the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) of the University.
About 670 financial experts, jurists from the European Court of Justice and other practitioners assist the academic staff of 210 professors and senior lecturers. Endowment chairs sponsored by TDK, the satellite operator SES Astra, the steel producer ArcelorMittal or Deutsche Bank are testimony to the close connections with the economic world.
Another typically Luxembourgish aspect of campus life resides in the latter's personal atmosphere, where small is beautiful and lecturers can give individual help.
University of the Greater Region
The University of Luxembourg is partner of the “University of the Greater Region” project alongside six other universities of the Greater Region which comprises Lorraine in France, Saarland and Rheinland Pfalz in Germany, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and Wallonia in Belgium.
The project aims at strengthening education and research cross border cooperation between the Universities of Metz, Nancy, Saarbrücken, Trier, Kaiserslautern, Liège and Luxembourg by creating a sustainable university network at Greater Region level. Co-funded by the European Union under the Interreg Program IVA, the project was issued in 2008 and will last until 2012. 7 universities, 4 countries, 3 languages, 9.000 researchers and professors and about 115.000 students to bring together: this is the challenge set by the University of the Greater Region!
