The Language Centre offers training for students in language learning and academic writing in French, German, and English.

This training leads to a certificate from the Language Centre and equips students to advise fellow students on language learning, presentations, and writing academic papers. The training is offered each summer semester and allocates 3 ECTS for Bachelor and 5 ECTS for Master students.

Some study programs integrate the peer tutor training in order to hire trained tutors as student assistants to support fellow students within their discipline.

The Language Centre of the University of Luxembourg was founded in 2014. Multilingualism is a key feature of the University of Luxembourg and is integrated into most study programmes.

The Language Centre’s mission is:

  • to enable the members of the University to function well in this multilingual educational environment;
  • to facilitate international academic mobility and integration into Luxembourg society;
