Erasmus+ studies

This program, financed by the European Union, allows students enrolled at the University of Luxembourg to pursue a semester abroad at one of its partner institutions within Europe, and to ensure the recognition of the credits obtained abroad.
At the beginning of the summer semester (end of February), an information session (video) is sent by email to inform you about this type of mobility.

What are the available Erasmus+ spots in at our partner institutions for your study programme?

The number of Erasmus+ spots is limited per academic year, study programme and receiving institution.

How to choose your receiving institution?
Consult the institutions’ websites and verify: the course catalogue for your studies, the teaching language (must be compatible with your level/ you must have an adequate level – minimum B2), the compatibility of academic calendars, the campus location of your faculty and the cost of living.

Make choices to obtain an Erasmus+ spot

Bachelor students:
A call will be sent out in March for the entire following academic year (for mobilities during the winter as well as the summer semester). The concerned students will receive a link to their student email to complete an online form at the beginning of March It is possible to indicate up to 3 partner universities of your choice. Erasmus+ spots will be allocated by the course director based on academic criteria (number of credits and average).

Master students:
After the validation of your mobility project by your course director, contact in March in order to indicate your mobility wishes.

Application at the receiving institution

Once you have  accepted your allocated spot, the Outgoing Mobility Office will contact you by email in due time to inform you about the application process.
You will generally  need to take care of submitting your complete application to the receiving institution within the respective deadlines.

Learning agreement

You will receive this document  together with the above mentioned email from the Outgoing Mobility Office. It is a compulsory document for the University of Luxembourg and you need to fill it out with courses you will follow abroad (for a minimum of 30 ECTS). It must be signed by your course director for validation. It is possible to modify it in the month following your arrival at the receiving institution, using the second page of the Learning agreement. Modifications must be approved by the receiving institution, as well as your course director.

  • you can download the respective template for modifications here:

Modification learning agreement 2022-23

Language test / Langue courses online (Online Linguistic Support)

If the teaching language at your receiving institution is not your mother tongue, you will receive an invitation to your student email to take a compulsory language test before your mobility. This is to evaluate your linguistic progression.
If the result is inferior to B2 level, you will also receive an invitation to follow languages classes online in preparation and during your stay abroad.


For reasons of equal treatment, the Outgoing Mobility Office cannot implicate itself in accommodation research. You will therefore be in charge of finding an accommodation for your mobility semester. Most receiving institutions have rooms for exchange students. We recommended to apply early, because the number is limited and attribution is not automatic.
For more information, consult the website of your receiving institution. You may also want to look into apartment-sharing.

Before departure

  • Pass your online language test, if you are concerned
  • Enroll at the University of Luxembourg as Outgoing student – “international exchanges” and at your receiving institution
