Thinking of studying at the University of Luxembourg?

9 Jun

Need an honest opinion about what to expect when coming in Luxembourg? Go on!

On this website you can check what other students say about the University`s programmes (both BA&MA), accomodation, living costs and so much more.

Below you can find some small reviews:

“I think the University of Luxembourg is a very attractig destination for bachelor students. Luxembourg is definitely a very easy place to live in and the career placement is so much easier than in other neighboring countries. The University fees are very cheap (just 200 euros per semester) which makes it very affordable as well. Teachers on campus are available for personal advice and the relatively small student body facilitates exchange among students.” (Studied Bachelor en Sciences Economiques et de Gestion (academic) at the University of Luxembourg)

“What I like about my program is the fact that it is held in 3 languages (EN, FR, DE) and I have to opportunity to improve and learn langauges. Also, my MA is truly multicultural, I have collegueas from all around the world and I can easily get to know other cultures.” (Studied Master in Learning and Communication in Multilingual and Multicultural Contexts at the University of Luxembourg)

Missing the snow?

6 Feb

So, we are in February, the last month of winter (theoretically), but there hasn`t been here any wintertime, no snow, no ice, no cold temperatures. Maybe this is a good thing, but somehow I miss it. Soon the exams` period will be over and we all have an inter-semestrial holiday. If you don`t go back home (where maybe you can experience real winter time), I suggest you to try ice-skating at Kockelscheuer. The tickets are cheap and affordable for students and there we can finally have a glimpse of winter`s joys!

Upcoming student events

20 Sep

Starting at a new university can be stressful. Where am I? Where is my next lecture? Which campus should I be on? This can all be a bit overwhelming at the start. Add to that the fact that you may also have just moved to a new country and you are likely to feel as if you have stepped onto another planet.

Don’t panic! Here is a series of events that will help you to meet new persons and have a good time:

Pub-crawl (you know you want to):

21 September: 19:30. Meet at Place de l’Hotel de Ville, Esch-sur-Alzette. Organised by ESN this is your first introduction to Luxembourg social life.

This former iron and steel capital is now a lively modern city with more than 100 pubs and bars just waiting to welcome you.


28 September: 16:00 – 19:00. Meet at the main entrance of the Central Building of the Limpertsberg Campus:
