[en] At the heart of Western Europe and culturally embedded in “The Greater Region,” Luxembourg for centuries developed higher education (HE) primarily via international student mobility, not its own national university. Evolving provisions of tertiary education after WWII followed construction of several teaching and research institutes that did not offer full-fledged higher education certification. The critical juncture—the founding of the national flagship University of Luxembourg (—occurred in 2003, since leading to an extraordinary case of university institutional¬ization. Traditions were explicitly maintained, but reshaped, in the new university, with student mobility continuing to bolster the national elite’s pan-European networks and internationalization. Reflecting its hyper-diversity, its multilingual culture, and its porous national borders, Luxembourg’s investments in higher education capacity-building have been thoroughly European. Today, Luxembourg has the highest proportion of HE graduates and of internationally mobile students, testament to its outgoing mobility tradition and national policy change facilitated by Europeanization.
