Students in mobility in Luxembourg who choose to go back home have access from their home country to all online courses offered by the University of Luxembourg.

Is student mobility of the winter semester 2020-2021 affected if a Bachelor student did not fulfil the 50% rule (30 ECTS) in the academic year 2019-2020?

Yes. Students who do not fulfil the 50% rule (30 ECTS) in the first year do not transition in the second year, they (re)register in their first year and are required to acquire the missing minimum amount of 30 ECTS credits during the winter semester 2020-2021. Participation in a mobility programme can only take place once students transition into their second year of the study programme.

Will outgoing and incoming mobility be maintained during the winter semester 2020-2021?

Mobility will be maintained as much as possible for EU and ERASMUS destinations. Most global exchange partner universities have cancelled incoming and outgoing mobility.
