Nestled between Belgium, Germany and France you will discover the small yet spectacular nation of Luxembourg, also known as the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. With a modern society, Luxembourg is multilingual and multicultural. The country’s long and interesting history has lead to it having a mix of Dutch, German and French cultures. The invasion of Luxembourg during World War II lead to them being a founding member of the European Union, and the country continues to be an active member of the EU, as well as the United Nations and NATO, among other organizations. Luxembourg’s culture, people and languages are all highly connected to its neighboring countries.
Studying in Luxembourg is a fantastic chance to learn new languages, and potentially finish your degree with an advanced knowledge of three different languages. Communicating with locals and other students in all three languages is a perfect way to practice. Having one extra language looks great on your CV/resume, so imagine how more than one would look!
Luxembourgish is recognized as the national language, with German and French also holding official language status. The people of Luxembourg also possess high standards in English as it is included in the compulsory curriculum, with many of the international companies based there incorporating it into the workplace.
