Mobility principle

The University of Luxembourg has subscribed to the principle of international student mobility enshrined in the Bologna Agreement (1999). The Bachelor's degree can only be awarded if the student enrolled at the university has completed a compulsory semester abroad at a university or other higher education institution abroad.

The semester abroad takes place in the 4th or 5th semester. This semester is organised by the SEVE (Service des Etudes et de la Vie Etudiante - Unité Mobilité). During this time, certain (complementary) study achievements must be completed, which are then recognised in Luxembourg.

Advantages of a semester abroad?

  • Students are exempt from tuition fees at the host university
  • Students may receive a monthly stipend for the duration of their stay abroad
  • The stay abroad is fully recognised at the home university

Participation requirements

  • The exchange must be offered between the home university and the host university
  • The stay abroad needs to last at least 3 months (max. 12 months)
  • The same person can only obtain one ERASMUS grant
  • Sufficient knowledge of the language of the host university is required

Exemption from the semester abroad

In the following cases, the Dean grants an exemption from the mobility requirement after consultation with the Director of Studies:

  • in the case of students with an illness that requires special treatment and/or students with a disability that significantly limits their mobility;
  • in the case of family commitments which prevent the student from being away from the family for an extended period of time (Rectorate decision of 8 May 2006);
  • in the case of students from a third country outside the European Economic Area who can provide evidence of a university degree in a country that does not belong to the European Economic Area (Rectorate decision of 10 July 2007);
  • in the case of proof of employment for the study period of at least 20 hours per week.

Students who are exempt from the mobility requirement are:

  • those who can present a degree in which at least 4 semesters of the study period were spent abroad;
  • those who have obtained at least 25 ECTS credits at a foreign university, which must be recognised by the Director of Studies (these ECTS credits count for one semester).
