LOCATION. Located between Germany, France and Belgium, Luxembourg is a gateway to Europe. Member State economies worth 80% of the European Union GDP can be reached from Luxembourg in one day. The country’s position as a leading financial centre and seat of major EU institutions further boosts its international profile. A dynamic business community, a growing start-up scene and thriving ICT sector add to Luxembourg’s appeal.

PERFORMANCE. Luxembourg was named the most open economy in Europe in the 2015 ICC Open Markets Index and placed 8th in the 2014 global Logistics Performance Index. Logistics employs more than 13,000 people in Luxembourg, with around 800 companies active in the sector.

MULTILINGUAL AND INTERNATIONAL. Luxembourg is a melting pot where people from over 150 different nationalities live side by side. Foreign nationals account for 45% of the population of 545,000. This international flair is reflected in the University’s international student body and staff. The University offers multilingual degrees, as well as language classes to students wishing to improve their skills or learn French, English, German or Luxembourgish.

PERSONALISED. The University of Luxembourg is a young university, founded in 2003 but already enjoying a solid international reputation. As it continued to grow, it has not lost its personal touch, with small class sizes, high levels of student-teacher interaction and individualised support.

PRACTICE-ORIENTED. The Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance places a strong emphasis on practical teaching and relevant research. Our academic staff are routinely supported by international experts and practitioners from the field.

CAREERS. Luxembourg offers internship opportunities and an international labour market in need of highly-qualified graduates. Around 70% of the country’s workforce is made up of immigrants and cross-border commuters.

LIVING IN LUXEMBOURG. Although small in size, Luxembourg has lots to offer. Not only is the capital city a UNESCO World Heritage Site, but its museums, live-music venues, nightlife, historic castles and beautiful landscapes make the country a hidden gem for you to discover. Dive into the rich local culture, meet people from all over the world and enjoy easy travel to major European capitals and many other destinations. Good things come in small packages.
