Location Luxembourg is a small country located between France and Germany and Belgium. The University of Luxembourg has multiple campuses.  

Parlez-vous français? Sprechen Sie Deutsch? Do you speak English? Or Lëtzebuergesch? If you want to talk to the young woman or man at the nearby cafe table, first of all you have to find out what language they speak. In the Grand Duchy, one of the founder states of the European Union, about 46 per cent of the 576 000 inhabitants are foreign. This multicultural ambience of day-to-day contact with people from the four corners of the earth gives the small state an astonishingly cosmopolitan outlook – especially thanks to the European institutions and the financial centre. Of course it is far easier to get around our capital (104,000 inhabitants) as we are not as large as Berlin or Paris, but offer just as much multicultural flare. The distances are short. There is a lively scene around the fashionable bars of Hollerich, Grund and Clausen in the capital, or in the Rockhal and the Kulturfabrik in Esch / Alzette. Furthermore, there are plenty of leisure activities: cinemas and climbing parks, mountain bike trails and an enormous cultural range – from jazz in the mediaeval city, contemporary art at MUDAM, theatre in every language or classical music in the most beautiful new building in Luxembourg, the Philharmonie. All this set against the romantic backdrop of the mediaeval city (a UNESCO world heritage site since 1994), the castles in the richly-forested north and the vineyards along the Mosel. 
Duration Winter (UAlbany Fall) Semester is from September until December with exams taking place in January. Summer (UAlbany Spring) Semester is from February until June with exams taking place in June.

More information on the academic calendar can be found online. Note that exams for the Winter (Fall) Semester conflict with the start of Spring UAlbany classes.
