Erasmus+ for students at the University of Luxembourg

The University of Luxembourg is an active participant in the ERASMUS+ programme. The programme allows students registered at the university to complete a study period at a partner institution in the EU and to obtain full academic credit for it in connection with a valid Learning Agreement.Erasmus+ is open to all bachelor and master students at the University of Luxembourg - restrictions may apply! However, some locations might not be available to you as Erasmus+ agreements are often for specific study programmes as well as study levels. At the bachelor level, to leave in the 3rd semester, you must have at least obtained 15 ECTS in your first semester. Otherwise you may apply to leave within Erasmus+ in your 4th or 5th semester (or study abroad under an "Inter-University agreement", as a "Free Mover" or within the university's "Global Exchange" Programme).

Students in the Bachelor en Gestion programme are strongly advised to leave in their 3rd or 4th semester so they will be able to follow the specialization courses in the 5th semester. Make sure you refer to the SEVE mobility information pages and attend the general mobility information session for your study programme that is offered by the SEVE mobility office together with FDEF. You will learn about the mobility procedure, the selection process for Erasmus and the partner universities for your study programme. You will also learn about the faculty's mobility specifics. The info sessions take place at the beginning of the summer semester and are being announced via moodle, through the campus TV and posters as well as on the FDEF facebook page.

The University of Luxembourg and the Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance have numerous bilateral Erasmus+ agreements with universities throughout Europe that allow student exchanges with partner universities mainly in Europe. Please consult the online list of bilateral agreements for locations available to you. At the beginning of the spring semester, the SEVE mobility office will send the call for application by email to all bachelor students to make a choice of up to three universities from the ones available in their respective study field for the following academic year (autumn and spring semester) - see timetable. The course directors decide how to allocate the Erasmus spots according to the academic achievement of the students. The SEVE mobility office informs the students about their allocated Erasmus host university.  They also assists students in preparing for the semester abroad and should be informed about your mobility plans right from the beginning. Students will be provided with information regarding all administrative aspects of studying abroad

For all academic aspects related to your mobility, please contact: Stephanie Anderson 

How to choose the right host university?

  • VERY IMPORTANT: most but not all universities abroad offer courses held in English, however, the number of classes in English might be limited and exchange students are required to also participate in courses held in the native language. Make sure that your language skills in the host countries language are adequate by checking the course offer of the university of your interest BEFORE you apply for an Erasmus spot there. If the Erasmus spot at that university is allocated to you and you won't be able to go due to insufficient language skills in the language of instruction, you lose all rights to financial support (Erasmus and mobility fond for that academic year)
  • which university offers the courses that you need for your academic advancement?
  • when is a good time to leave - summer or winter semester? Pay attention to academic calendars of potential host universities - there might be difficulties with semester times.
  • which foreign experience might give your curriculum the extra boost?

IMPORTANT to know! Being exempt from mobility!

The mobility semester is obligatory for all bachelor students at the UL. If you have not been on mobility and you do not have a valid reason for an exemption from mobility you cannot graduate. An exemption from mobility is not automatically granted!

To receive an exemption from mobility, you must actively ask for it and might have to provide the necessary documentation. If you feel that one of the criteria for exemption listed below applies to you, please complete only the upper part (personal information) of the form digitally (handwritten forms will not be accepted):

 

and send it together with the required documents supporting your request to Stephanie Anderson. In certain cases you may be exempt from the mobility. However, you must follow the required procedure: applying for an exemption / release from mobility including the proper documentation. See criteria and required documents: 

  • a diploma showing that you spent at least 4 semesters at a foreign university
  • a transcript showing that you obtained at least 30 ECTS in the same study field (must already have been recognized by the study director) at a foreign university
  • a medical certificate showing that you suffer from a medical issue that requires special treatment and/or you have a handicap that does not allow a mobility
  • a composition of household (composition de ménage) showing that you have family obligations that require your presence at home
