  • To be part of a student association and student life in general is paramount to experiencing a positive University experience. Student Associations provide students with valuable skills such as the ability to work in a team environment, to engage with the University beyond academics, and to belong to a family away from home. This type of engagement is essential to taking full advantage of the "University Experience".
  • This positive experience can provide students with the following opportunities: helping to network with other young professionals, development into well-rounded individuals, and showcase a student's abilities gained from their academic studies.


  • Five Master programmes at the University of Luxembourg’s Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance have been accredited by the Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation (FIBAA), an international expert for quality assurance and development in higher education and research.
  • The FIBAA accreditation is the first study programmes certification at the University of Luxembourg and represents an important step in receiving international recognition for the University’s programmes and a seal of approval for high-quality teaching.
