In Luxembourg, through continuing training, there are alternatives to the traditional channels for earning a diploma.
Evening courses, adult apprenticeships and distance learning courses enable adults to earn a diploma while continuing to work. These courses prepare students for the same qualifications and diplomas as courses delivered through school education.
Validation of non-formal and informal learning (Validation des acquis de l'expérience - VAE) also enables those with a minimum of 3 years of professional or non-professional experience to convert their achievements into a diploma.
