Luxembourg is one of the smallest countries in the world, surrounded by Germany and France making it one of Europe’s safest cities. The country offers a splendid cosmopolitan environment and is home to a lot of top-ranked universities. The country has the highest GDP (gross domestic product) per capita in the entire world.

Luxembourg’s currency is the Euro, and the tuition fees you pay will vary depending on the type of course you choose to study and at what level. The country offers an intriguing blend of Dutch, German, and French cultures, making for an enriching study experience for international students. In general, higher education in Luxembourg is taught in English and any of Luxembourg’s official languages, giving students the opportunity to become fluent in multiple languages while earning a university degree.

The prestigious Luxembourg institutes are known for providing Bachelor’s, Master’s, Doctoral, Dual, and Associate degrees in a variety of fields.

Though funded scholarships offered by Luxembourg universities are in collaboration with other reputable institutions, foreign students can study here for free because these scholarships can pay all expenses for deserving students, which includes tuition, housing, healthcare, and books.

International students can apply for the many scholarships available in Luxembourg after they have received an acceptance letter from a Luxembourgish Institution.
