The national education system

In Luxembourg, compulsory schooling starts 4 and ends at 16 years of age.

The total period of compulsory education is 11 years.

The Luxembourg education system is mainly characterised by its multilingual tradition and its policy of integrating children from a migrant background.

The language teaching (French, German and Luxembourgish) occupies a central place.

Most schools are public and free of charge. There are also a few private (fee-based) schools that follow the official Luxembourg curriculum and a few international private schools.
