International Relations Office

The objective of the International Relations Office is to develop and coordinate the international relations and activities of the University of Luxembourg. This involves providing support and feedback to the University management on international issues and developing international agreements for the University. Key tasks of the Office include:

  • the implementation of the strategic plan on internationalisation;
  • the initiation, preparation and evaluation of agreements with international partner universities;
  • the administration and promotion of the Erasmus + programme;
  • the administration and promotion of staff mobility;
  • the establishment of agreements for the joint supervision of thesi (the so-called “cotutelles”);
  • international visits;
  • alumni relations;
  • information to students and staff on the Erasmus Mundus programme, the Fulbright programme and other international opportunities.

The Office also promotes and supports the organisation of the Global exchange programme, which offers study abroad opportunities beyond the borders of Europe to University of Luxembourg students. It organises the Top Student Prize, awarded every year to three of the best students in each Faculty who are invited to participate in an international summer school abroad.

Furthermore, the Office is responsible for developing projects with the target countries of Luxembourg’s development cooperation. Contacts with international organisations, embassies and partner universities are also an essential task of the Office.

Another important division of the Office is EURAXESS. EURAXESS – Researchers in Motion is a pan-European initiative launched by the European Commission to promote research careers and facilitate the mobility of researchers across Europe. Its Luxembourg representative provides free advice and guidance to your questions connected to research opportunities in Luxembourg.
