In 2003, a new university was founded: the University of Luxembourg, the first and only university of the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg, the small state that sits between France, Germany and Belgium.
Teaching, research and knowledge transfer at the highest international level: those are the three ambitious goals that this university sets from the start. As one of the youngest universities in Europe, it built directly on the Bologna system. This institution offers a range of high-quality Bachelor's , however the focus of its teaching is always on Master's and PhDs .
Special attention is given to research which focuses on particularly promising areas. The academic staff members come from all around the world and work in interdisciplinary teams. The university wants to serve the society and economy of Luxembourg as a place of reflection, and to develop into a motor of economic diversification.
Close links to EU institutions, the financial centre and the Luxembourg job market
Luxembourg is the headquarters of many European institutions, such as the European Court of Justice and the European Investment Bank, and is renowned for its international financial centre. Naturally, the University of Luxembourg makes use of these connections: about five hundred financial experts, legal experts and other practitioners support our professors in their teaching. The alumni and the research projects the university completes in turn benefit EU institutions, the financial centre and Luxembourg itself as an economic location with an attractive job market – a fruitful cooperation.
Multilingual and mobile
This university is one of the few in the world to be multilingual . So it makes sense to promote mobility as well. All our undergraduates have to spend at least one semester abroad. This mobility is done in cooperation with partners in Europe, Asia and North America.
A personal touch
There’s no point looking for mass events at our university. Everyone knows everyone else on campus. It is easy to get an overview of teaching and research activities, the lecturers are easy to reach. Many courses take place in the form of seminars, and the first undergraduate semester is guided in tutorials.
The "Cité des Sciences"
The University of Luxembourg currently conducts its activities on three sites: Limpertsberg, Kirchberg and Walferdange. In the future, it will base the Faculty of Sciences, Technology and Communication and the Faculty of Language and Literature, Humanities, Arts and Education at its new site in the Esch/Belval science complex. The final location of the Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance will be decided at a later date.
University of the Greater Region - UGR
The University of Luxembourg is partner of the “University of the Greater Region - UGR” 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 UGR 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 UGR!
