University of Luxembourg

The University of Luxemburg (UL) was founded in 2003, and is, thus, one of the youngest and fast growing universities in Europe. Based at the heart of the European Union, it offers a range of high-quality programmes at all levels. Teaching, research and knowledge transfer at the highest international level: those are the three ambitious goals that this university sets from the start. As one of the youngest universities in Europe, it built directly on the Bologna system. This institution offers a range of high-quality Bachelor's, however the focus of its teaching is always on Master's and PhDs.
The UL is international (with an academic staff of 17 nationalities, and students from 95 nationalities), multilingual (three official languages: English, French and German) and research-led University.
Special attention is given to research which focuses on particularly promising areas. Law, with focus on European Law, is one of the main research area of the UL. The Research Unit in Law (RUL), part of the Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance, gathers over 80 researchers in Law with expertise covering the entire spectrum of the legal field.
