Schooling and Education


Newcomers to Luxembourg essentially have two options when it comes to education, either to enrol their child in a state or private school or to enrol them in an international school. The majority of children attend state schools. Only a small number of schools provide a linguistic and/or pedagogical alternative.

Education is carried out in the three official languages: Luxembourgish, French and German.

Education is compulsory for all children aged between 4 and 16. Younger children may attend nursery schools. No child can be refused education for reasons of race, sex, language, religion or legal status of the parents.
