University of Luxembourg
The University of Luxembourg, founded in 2003, is the first and only public university in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Located in the heart of the European Union, the University of Luxembourg has made international cooperation one of its priorities and considers it an important tool to reach excellence in research and education. This university has students, researchers and professors from all over the world. Currently, the University of Luxembourg has about 6,000 students, 2,500 of which are international students.
University at Buffalo students may choose the courses they would like to take from a variety of disciplines, provided that they have the qualifications required. Programs (Majors) are arranged within three Faculties:
- Faculty of Science, Technology and Communication
- Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance
- Faculty of Language and Literature Humanities Arts and Education
Students studying in Luxembourg during the Winter term (UB Fall semester) should choose courses from semesters 1 and 3, and those studying during the Summer term (UB Spring semester) should choose courses from semesters 2 and 4. Luxembourg operates on the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). The UB Study Abroad Programs Office converts half credit for ECTS credits. For example, a 6 ECTS credit course taken at Luxembourg will convert back as 3 UB credits. In many cases a course at Luxembourg may be worth 5 ECTS credits which will be rounded up to 3 UB credits (not 2.5 credits). Students should enroll in a minimum of 24 ECTS credits per semester to earn 12 UB credits (full time status); however, most students enroll in 30 ECTS credits per semester to earn 15 UB credits. Please see UB Study Abroad Programs with any questions on credit conversion.
After completion of your on-line application you can apply for a room in one of the student residence halls. Before your arrival, SEVE Student Accommodation Mobility Department will send you further information.
Note: Rental agreements usually start on the 1st or the 16th of each month.
