About University of Luxembourg

The University of Luxembourg embodies the idea of a European research university, with our dynamism resulting from the pioneering spirit of our academics. Although we were only founded recently (2003) and we are a relatively small institution, we have international reach. This is thanks to our focus on a targeted range of exciting research fields:

  • ICT and computational sciences
  • systems biomedicine;
  • European law;
  • finance
  • educational sciences.

Situated on the new Belval Campus (VIDEO) on reconverted industrial land and in the City of Luxembourg, our research teams and 550 PhD students work within three faculties and three interdisciplinary centres

With 6,200 students and 250 academics from Europe and beyond, our University provides a truly multilingual learning experience. Whether it be English-French or German-French, many degree programmes are bilingual, and Master's degrees taught entirely in English are also on offer. Nearly 80 partner universities worldwide boost the cosmopolitan profile further, with all Bachelor’s students studying abroad for at least one semester. Cross-border degrees are also available.

Luxembourg is a hub for innovative knowledge industries such as finance, high-end manufacturing and ICT. As the motor of the national research and innovation system, the University gives strong support to entrepreneurial activities. We are also well connected to European institutions, banks and businesses, technology companies, and Luxembourg’s multicultural society. The result is a unique mix of international excellence and local relevance to students and scientists from across the globe
