Expat guide: Higher education in Luxembourg
Here's a short introduction to our Higher Education section for those thinking of studying in Luxembourg.
Choosing a university or college
If you are already living outside your home country, selecting a university or college will depend on the field of study you are interested in, and the quality of education you desire. Check out our basic guide to higher education in Luxembourg.
Remember that even if the universities located near you do not have a reputation for quality higher education, there will always be individual centres of excellence. Check out ratings on the internet such as Expatica’s listing of the best business schools worldwide, which will help you to choose a university in your country or city of residence.
Student exchange programmes
Students wishing to study abroad can take advantage of a student exchange programme to go to a university or college outside of their home country. As well as educating the students in their chosen field of study, these programmes enable the expat students to learn a new language and culture.
Naturally, students need to carry out adequate research so they can be well-prepared for the university application process. But parents can also help. Read an expert’s advice to both students and parents on how to get through the application process. Also read our feature on the application process for expats.
Part-time and online programmes
Higher education programmes for expats and accompanying spouses can sharpen skills, improve self-esteem and help ensure that an expatriate’s assignment is a success. The Open University offers a variety of courses, most of which Expat university students can study singly or combine with others to obtain a qualification.
