What to expect in Luxembourg

This small country’s national motto is “Mir wëlle bleiwe wat mir sinn“ (We will stay what we are), a statement of independence directed at those who have tried to conquer Luxembourg in the past.

Studying in this landlocked country in Western Europe will embed you in a truly European way of life, while experiencing a multilingual culture. The smallest country in Europe, Luxembourg also has one of the highest living standards in the world with a population of just over 600 000, most of whom live in or around Luxembourg City.

Luxembourg is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and wherever your explorations take you in this centuries-old country, you will discover beautifully preserved buildings and monuments. Soak up the rich history by simply going for a walk in the medieval streets or having a coffee in one of the sidewalk cafes.
