Are you unsure about what to study after high school because you can’t decide between several programmes? Have you completed a Bachelor’s degree and you need to decide which Master’s degree to choose to continue your studies? Or do you want to reorient yourself? 

Take the opportunity on this day to meet and exchange with our study advisors or with students from the University of Luxembourg.

Welcome to the Information Day of the University of Luxembourg

How to?

How does the Information Day work?

Do you have general questions about studying at the University of Luxembourg? You do not yet know which programme to choose? Would you like some advice? Go to the first part General Orientation and choose one of the three contact persons.
You already know what you want to study or at least you know the subject, but you are still not sure? Do you have questions about a specific study programme or a particular field of study? Go to part two Programme Orientation and find the programme of your choice and discuss it with the study specialists.
Do you need information about admission procedures or about financing your studies? Go to part three Administrative Orientation and talk to one of the contacts at the Student Department.
Do you want to know what student life at the University of Luxembourg is like? Would you like to know more about the services offered to students outside of classes or what the University campuses look like? Go to part four Student Life Orientation for more information about student life and to meet some of our students.

To offer everyone an individual and personalised exchange, waiting rooms (Lobby) are set up when you click on “join the chat”. After a few moments in the waiting room, your contact person will let you enter his or her private room to talk with you. During this waiting time, do not hesitate to contact other study advisors (such as general, programme, administrative or Student Life orientation), to visit our website www.uni.lu or to download the brochures you are interested in. We thank you for your patience and understanding.

How does the video chat work?

By clicking on the “Join the chat” button, you will be connected to Webex and be asked to either download and install the software that is asked (smartphones, tablets and computers) or to “Join from your browser” (only on computers). After that we’ll ask you to add your name and your e-mail address, so we know who we are talking to (we don’t keep your data).

Then click on “Join Meeting”.

If you encounter technical problems, feel free to restart the video chat or refresh the page.

Frequently asked questions

When choosing a Bachelor’s degree, you should make sure that it corresponds to your career plans and the profession you would like to practise afterwards. A degree is not a goal but a means to achieve your objective. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • What is the Bachelor programme (lectures, tutorials, seminars, electives, …)?
  • What are the Bachelor’s career prospects?
  • Does it allow me to do internships?
  • What are my possibilities during the mobility semester?
  • What is the average hiring time after graduation?
  • Is it possible to continue my studies with a Master’s degree?

By participating in the Information Day (16 January 2021), the Master Days (24-25 February 2021), our Open Day (20 March 2021) and our Bachelor Days (21 and 22 April 2021), you will be able to obtain more information about our different programmes.
