Overview

Each year, about a third of your time is devoted to Luxembourg studies. You’ll spend your third year studying or working in Germany (or Austria) and Luxembourg.

The course combines intensive language training with rigorous academic study.

We teach in German on several of our modules, which cover literature, culture, history, philosophy, politics, language theory and usage in German-speaking countries. Specialist options include Dutch and Luxembourgish.

Luxembourg is multilingual so you’ll learn Luxembourgish and French as well as German. You’re not expected to reach the same level of proficiency in all three languages.

Throughout the course, you’ll study the culture and history of both countries; from their literature and cinema to their business and politics.
