The DAEU (literary option) provides access to university studies. It is offered through evening and daytime courses by the Luxembourg Lifelong Learning Center in partnership with the Université de Lorraine. It confers the same rights as those associated with obtaining the Baccalaureate.

  • Be at least 20 years of age on 1 October of the year of registration for the DAEU, and on this same date be able to demonstrate 2 years of professional activity, whether full-time or part-time, which has produced Social Security contributions.

    The following circumstances are automatically qualified as professional activity which has produced Social Security contributions and for the corresponding period:
    • Any period of bringing up a child,
    • Registration with the Agency for the Development of Employment (Agence pour le Développement de l’Emploi - ADEM) for Luxembourg residents, and with the Jobcentre (Pôle Emploi) for French residents,
    • Participation in a vocational training scheme for young jobseekers or young people wishing to gain a qualification.

    OR

  • Be at least 24 years of age on 1 October of the year of registration on the DAEU.

02 Evening and daytime courses

The teaching is varied and includes 2 modern languages including French and a choice of German, English or Portuguese, together with two optional subjects. The optional subjects include history, geography, mathematics and a modern language (English, German or Portuguese).
