The offer in higher studies in Luxembourg

Higher education in Luxembourg follows secondary, classical or technical education.
Luxemburgish students have the choice between continuing their higher education in Luxembourg or going to study in other countries. We will study here the first case.

It should be known that higher education is very recent in Luxembourg, since the university offer really exists only since the beginning of the 2000s with the creation in 2003 of the University of Luxembourg. Previously, students moved abroad mainly to neighboring countries like France, Germany or Belgium, to find higher education.

Higher education in Luxembourg is now a priority for the Luxembourgish government, which provides the University of Luxembourg with all the necessary means to develop.

In addition to the University of Luxembourg, there are also BTS (Technician Superior) courses offered by Technical High Schools over 2 years. This is particularly the case of:

  • Technical High School of Arts and Crafts (LTAM)
  • Josy Barthel High School (LJBM)
  • Technical High School School of Business and Management (LTECG)
  • Technical High School for Health Professions (LTPS).

Since 2013, the Lycée classique d’Echternach offers, in partnership with the Lycée Georges de la Tour in Metz, a preparatory class for the Grandes Écoles de Commerce in France., school platform for easier orientation in the choice of secondary and higher education in Luxembourg
