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. 

Among the 27 EU member states, Luxembourg is a favourite for intl students. As a country with a rich culture, students find this destination to be their perfect choice, not only academically-wise but also when it comes to learning new things and growing in a personal manner.

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.

The UK is also a renowned higher ed destination for international students. However, the UK left the European Union on 31 January 2020, and it is currently on its transition period up until January 2021. UK graduates, however, have shown to be successful in the labour market, after finishing studies.

Germany, as part of the EU member states, also has its share of international students on a yearly basis. Statistics show that currently, Germany counts more than 300,000 intl students in its HEIs. German degrees are largely wanted from intl students, even if offered through means of distance education, survey shows
