Study in Luxembourg
As an international student, if you choose to study in Luxembourg you will have an enriching experience in one of the smallest sovereign states in Europe.
Luxembourg has three official languages. These are French, German and Luxembourgish. Luxembourgish is the language of the natives, French is used as an official language, and children are first taught in German.
Higher education in Luxembourg is taught bilingually. This implies that your course will probably be offered in one of these combinations: French/English, French/German or English/German. Regardless of the language you choose to study in, you have to prove your proficiency in that language. If you don’t meet the required teaching standards, you have to attend the language courses offered by some universities.
Studying in Luxembourg is an opportunity to learn new languages, and finish your studies with an advanced knowledge of the three official languages.
Luxembourg doesn’t have a central application portal, unlike other countries in Western Europe.
Requirements for admission differs in various universities, however these are the common documents you need to submit:
- Letter of motivation
- Letters of recommendation
- Language test results scores
- Academic and professional CVs
Apply ahead of time as the schools will require time to let you know whether you need to submit anything extra. Some schools may ask for physical copies of your documents, so factor in postage time.
Documents have to be presented in the language you plan on studying with. You’ll have to send your original documents with their notarized translations.
