Admission to the University of Luxembourg
Important: Given that proof of admission to the University of Luxembourg must be provided, applicants must first follow the process to apply for admission to the University of Luxembourg. As part of this process, the candidates are asked to indicate their intention to submit an application for the scholarship program of the Government of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
An evaluation committee examines the applications in accordance with the following criteria:
previous educational experience
relevance of the study plan or research project (expected impacts on the host and home communities, and for the applicant’s personal journey)
motivation (e.g. interest in discovering the culture and learning the language of the host country)
careful presentation of the application
The government offering the scholarships makes the final selection.
