Luxembourg With the Largest Share of Intl’ Students in EU

The small European country of Luxembourg has the highest share of international students coming from abroad, among EU member states, reports Erudera College News. Despite being an attractive destination to tourists, this cultural country has its fair share of international students as well.

Statistics from the European Commission show that the largest percentage of international students in higher education, in the EU and its member states, belongs to Luxembourg (48%), closely followed by Cyprus (24%), Austria (18%), and Czechia (14%).

Luxembourg is highly regarded for its higher education system and the quality of education it provides. Students can choose from a wide range of courses and degree programmes provided by numerous top-ranked universities. Although there is one public university in Luxembourg, one can find a wide range of private institutions as well.

Additionally, Croatia and Greece have the lowest share of intl students, with only 3%. Spain and Poland reported a total of 4% each. During a time when international education has become so popular, intl students in the EU represent a total of 8%, from all enrolled tertiary students.
