Thainá Dantas Bacelar from Brazil can attest to this. After graduating secondary school in Belgium, she wanted to continue studying in Europe; applying to the University of Luxembourg was the obvious next step.
It is home to the Court of Justice of the European Union, the European Investment Bank and three out of five Magic Circle law firm offices — a handy location for law students to get valuable industry experience.
Luxembourg is “an ideal starting point for those who wish to study international law,” said Thainá.
