University Diploma (Diplôme Universitaire)

Adults who want to resume or begin higher education, usually whilst working, can obtain a University Diploma such as a Master's, Bachelor's or University Diploma through continuing training (outside working hours).

Access to the first year of university studies is open to holders of a Secondary School Leaving Diploma (Diplôme de Fin d’Etudes Secondaires) or Technical Secondary School Leaving Diploma (Diplôme de Fin d’Etudes Secondaires Techniques), or a Technician's Diploma (Diplôme de technicien - DT) in a speciality matching the planned university studies, or foreign certificates or diplomas that are recognised as equivalent by the ministry responsible for national education.

Admission to the second (Master's) and third levels (Doctorate) is granted to holders of:

  • Either a rank or diploma attesting the previous level and listed in the register of titles submitted to the Ministry of Higher Education and Research (Ministère de l’Enseignement supérieur et de la Recherche),
  • Or a rank or diploma attesting a level or period of study recognised as equivalent by the Minister of Higher Education and Research (Ministère de l’Enseignement supérieur et de la Recherche).

The validation of non-formal and informal learning (VAE) also allows experience to be recognised with a view to accessing various Bachelor's or Master's levels of university studies.

Example

Jean-Luc, a System Administrator, would like to improve his credentials in order to obtain a managerial role.

Jean-Luc, 41 and holder of a diploma in computer science, has worked for 12 years as a System Administrator in a Luxembourg administration. He would however like to broaden his skills in order to apply for a strategic role in a computing equipment safety department of a major bank or multinational.

On the Université du Luxembourg's website he finds a Master's in 'Information Systems Security Management', delivered as continuing training over 4 semesters. As the training enables him to keep his job until he gains his diploma, Jean-Luc decides to register at the start of the next acAdemic year.
