Admission Criteria

Your situation

  • You want to apply for a Master’s programme
  • You are a non-EU citizen without a Luxembourg residence permit
  • You have an EU, EEA or Swiss Bachelor diploma (recognised under the Bologna process)

Your criteria

  • Diploma

    If you have not yet received your Bachelor diploma by the application period for your chosen study programme, you cannot submit your application online, as non-European students are required to be in possession of their diploma to apply.

    Your diploma is accepted at the University of Luxembourg for all programmes.

    Please note that if you are not able to finalise your enrolment, it is not possible to defer admission to the next academic year.
    You will have to apply from scratch, with a new ID number, and upload your documents again. The rules on application fees, language certificates, etc. will apply to you as they do for any new candidate.
    Acceptance for a previous academic year does not guarantee acceptance of any subsequent applications.

  • Deadline

    You are required to apply for a visa and residence permit for Luxembourg.

    Please submit your application by the deadline applicable to non-EU citizens indicated on your programme web page.

    Make sure that you check the specific deadline for your study programme. Deadlines vary from one programme to the next.

  • Language Skills

    You will need to show proof of your language skills at the level indicated for your chosen study programme.

  • Residency permit

    Once you have been accepted onto the programme, you will also have to apply for a Luxembourg residence permit. This request must be submitted directly to the Luxembourg government by 1 July at the latest.

    In case of admission acceptance, you will need to request your criminal record to undergo your immigration procedure. We strongly recommend you to request the criminal record of your country of residence in advance, to accelerate the procedure with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. We suggest you request this document no later than the beginning of April, even if you have not received the result of your application.

  • Payment of enrolment fees

    You will pay your enrolment fees once you arrive in Luxembourg. The amount to be paid is indicated on the web page for your study programme.
