    Programme Description

    You are interested in questions concerning life in society and want to engage yourself for a more equity? You would like to participate in the development and implementation of programmes in the area of social prevention, consultation or care for the general population or vulnerable groups like handicaped persons, homeless people, unemployed or dependant elderly people? You have a good sense of organising activities, like to communicate and work in interdisciplinary teams? Vous êtes intéressé-e par des questions qui touchent à la vie en communauté et voulez vous engager pour une société plus équitable ?

    The bachelor's degree programme in social and educational sciences is geared to training generalists in social intervention (social work/social pedagogy). Due to the intelligent articulation of theory and practice and its emphasis on scientific knowledge, the study programme prepares for professional activity as well as for a master's degree.

    Training professionals in social pedagogy/social work is considered a key element of every strategy to construct an inclusive society. The Bachelor´s Degree Programme in Social and Educational Sciences provides a quality university-level professional training in social and educational intervention and development areas.

    One of the major points of appeal of the study programme undoubtedly lies in its generalist and inter-disciplinary approach which reconsiders traditional distinctions between social pedagogy and social work and their complementary aspect. Thanks to the close articulation between course work at the University and training in the field, and the importance accorded to basic academic training, the degree programme prepares students to exercise the profession or to continue and earn a master´s degree.

    The study programme is organised along the lines of the Bolognaprocess, which aims to make university degrees easier to understand and to compare. The courses are thus organised as capitalisable modules. A precise number of European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) credits is assigned to each module, where one credit corresponds to a workload of about 24 hours. In the Bachelor´s Degree Programme in Social and Educational Sciences, the modules are given in 6 semesters and total 180 ECTS credits.

    The courses can be attended on a full- or a part-time basis.

    It is possible to study on a full- or a part-time basis. Part-time students take the training modules with full-time students, but can advance at their own pace. As the new system follows the guidelines of the Bologna process, the study programme is no longer arranged in terms of years. Students must take a number of modules equivalent to 180 ECTS credits. Each module is certified separately.

    People with professional experience of three or more years can file an application for the accreditation of prior experiential learning and be granted, where appropriate, exemption for having to take certain modules.

    Those interested must file an application in order to enrol. Those who do not qualify for prior experiential learning must undergo a written examination and an interview, and are listed by order of priority. For those who can file an application for validation, an interview is organised once their application has been received.

    The languages of instruction are French and German. Knowledge of Luxembourgish is not a prerequisite.

    Students are called upon to enrich their education through a mandatory mobility period of one semester in one of the many partner universities.

    The employment prospects cover a plethora of fields, from day- (and night-) care for children, teenagers, adults and the elderly to the projects for the prevention of poverty and crime, healthcare, as well as the social inclusion of disabled persons and advice and support for young people with difficulties or detainees or former detainees to (re)build their lives..

    Mindful of the success of students in their studies, great importance is attached to personalised advice and support for students throughout their academic career. From the first semester, a team of tutors helps students along the way and encourages them to consider their motivation and interests.
