  • Bachelor en Sciences Sociales et Educatives,
  • Bachelor en Sciences de l’Education

A pre-selection will be made on the basis of the submitted application documents. The study programme director must approve the candidacy/mobility, only then applicants are being invited for a personal interview by the International Relations Office.

If a spot is allocated and the student is nominated at the host university, the final decision still lies with the host university. Most host universities have minimum average grade requirements. Should the selected student not achieve all required ECTS and experience a drop in the average grade, the University of Luxembourg retains the right to cancel the mobility.
