Free mover

 

For students wanting to do a mobility semester at a non-partner institution for their field, the University of Luxembourg offers the possibility of going as a free-mover student.
In this framework, students are more independent as they organize their mobility by  themselves, with the support of the SEVE Mobility Office.

Application at the host institution

You are in charge of sending your application to the receiving institution.  Keep in mind that deadlines can vary from one university to the other.

Learning agreement

You will receive this document from the SEVE Mobility Office once you have informed them of your wish do a free mover mobility.  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.

Accommodation

For reasons of equal treatment, the SEVE 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.

Bourse Fonds de mobilité

Bachelor students who do a mobility semester as free mover  at an institution outside the Greater Region, can  get funding from the “Fonds de mobilité” of the University of Luxembourg: if you are eligible, the SEVE Mobility Office will allocate you the grant. You will receive the total amount of the grant once you come back from your mobility semester, under the condition that all requested documents have been handed in.

Important information

The SEVE Mobility Office will mainly communicate with you via your student email address. Check regularly your student email account given to you by the University of Luxembourg: firstname.lastname.index@student.uni.lu
