The University of Luxembourg was founded in 2003 and is the only public university in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. With more than 7,000 students and approximately 2,400 employees from around the world, our University provides a truly cosmopolitan learning experience. 60% of students are international students, and the majority of staff members and academics have an international background. Our strategic development areas are digital transformation, medicine and health, and sustainable and societal development. Our students can choose between 18 Bachelor degrees and 46 Master degrees, as well as several vocational training and lifelong learning courses. Programmes are generally taught in two languages (French/English or French/German), some in three languages and some entirely in English, in particular at the Master level.
