University of Luxembourg ,
Since the academic year 2007/2008, the University of Luxembourg(Luxemburg) offers a complete Bachelor in Physics. The Bachelor En Sciences et Ingénierie - Filière Physique covers six semesters and fits perfectly into the framework of the Bologna process. Each successful semester is validated by 30 credits ECTS.

The mobility clause provided by the law on the establishment of the University of Luxembourg(Luxemburg) requires the student to continue the fifth semester at a foreign university.

The moving abroad is facilitated by ERASMUS agreements with partner universities.

The student may also register in a integrated study course in Physics (Cursus intégré Sarre-Lor-Lux en physique) organized by the University Henri Poincaré in Nancy, Saarland University in Saarbrücken and the University of Luxembourg (Luxemburg). This international study program, having the aim to combine a highly integrated scientific training to cultural and linguistic values, leads to diplomas at multiple seals

During the Bachelor En Sciences et Ingénierie - Filière Physique training, the student becomes familiar with many mathematical tools and acquires basic knowledge in key areas of physics, so that by the end of the cycle he has a wide view of the whole discipline. At the same time he will receive basics of chemistry and computer science.

The training aims to develop the scientific rigor, critical thinking, precision and imagination of the student. Generally speaking, knowledge is transmitted in the course of lectures. The tutorials and practical work, placed throughout the training, are designed to enable students to deepen their theoretical knowledge and gain essential experimental skills. The student freely chooses a number of courses. Their goal is to be able to extend his general culture, for example by improving his language skills.

Training can lead as well to research and teaching as an multiple careers in the industrial world.

The first half of the training is open to all students who have successfully completed their secondary school in Luxembourg or equivalent studies abroad. The admission in future semester is treated by file.

After passing the sixth semester successfully at the University of Luxembourg (Luxemburg) , the student who has accumulated 180 credits is awarded the academic degree of Bachelor of Science and Engineering - Physics Branch. This diploma allows either to integrate the world of work or to continue the studies with a Master.

The principle of mobility at the University of Luxembourg

The University of Luxembourg subscribes to the principle of international student mobility pursuant to the Bologna agreements (1999).

The Act of 12 August 2003 on the creation of the University of Luxembourg implements this principle in the following terms: “ A bachelor’s degree may be conferred only if a student enrolled in the University has attended, for a required period, another university or any other institution of higher education abroad.”

Mobility is a real winning asset for students. By living and studying abroad and coming into contact with another academic culture, students are inevitably put in a situation that enables them to question and assess their personal choices, ways of thinking and of approaching their studies.
Students who wish to study abroad must enrol and earn at least 30 ECTS credits.

The ECTS credits earned abroad are recognized by the course director on the basis of the previously signed learning agreement.


An exemption is granted by the Dean on the recommendation of the Course director for students who:

  • Suffer from an illness requiring specific treatment and/or who have a disablement of such nature as to reduce their mobility considerably;
  • Have family obligations that prevent them from being away from the family home for an extended period ( Rectorate decision of 8 May 2006);
  • Come from a third, non-EEA state and can produce a secondary school leaver’s certificate from that state (Rectorate decision of 10 July 2007);
  • Present a proof of employment for the study period of at least 20 hours per week.

Students who have earned:

  • a diploma after at least 4 semesters of a university education abroad;
  • at least 25 ECTS credits (to be validated by the Course director) in a foreign university (these credits count for one semester)

are exempted from the mobility requirement.

Secondary school - or vocational education -- leaver´s certificate or foreign diploma recognised as equivalent by the Minister responsible for National Education.
