Internship Program

Recruit trainees from the United States!

On May 23, 2012, the American Chamber of Commerce in Luxembourg (AMCHAM) and the University of Luxembourg signed a cooperation agreement to set up an internship program in Luxembourg for students from the University of Luxembourg’s partner institutions in the U.S.

The University of Luxembourg has signed interuniversity agreements with nine partner institutions in the United States: Miami University, the University of Northern Arizona, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the University at Buffalo (State University of New York), the University of Virginia’s College at Wise, the University of San Francisco, the William and Mary School of Law, Colorado State University and Columbia University. The planned internship program aims to attract more students from these partner universities by offering them a professional experience in addition to their study period at the University of Luxembourg.

The University of Luxembourg will take care of all administrative procedures included in the process.
