International Relations Office

The objective of the International Relations Office is to develop and coordinate the international activities of the staff and students of the University of Luxembourg. This involves providing support and feedback to the University management on staff and student mobility.

Key tasks of the Office include:

  • implementing the strategic plan on internationalisation as it affects staff and students;
  • preparing and evaluating agreements with international partner universities;
  • administering and promoting the Erasmus + programme;
  • administering and promoting staff and student mobility;
  • providing information to students and staff on international mobility opportunities.

The Office also promotes and supports the organisation of the Global Exchange Programme, which offers study abroad opportunities beyond the borders of Europe to University of Luxembourg students. It organises the Top Student Prize, awarded every year to nine of the best students (three per faculty) who are then invited to participate in an international summer school abroad.

Contacts with international organisations, embassies and partner universities are also an essential task of the Office.

Another important division of the Office is EURAXESS. EURAXESS – Researchers in Motion is a pan-European initiative launched by the European Commission to promote research careers and facilitate the mobility of researchers across Europe. Its Luxembourg representative offers free advice and guidance to questions regarding research opportunities in Luxembourg.
