The University of Luxembourg will be offering students the chance to study medicine from September to plug the shortage of doctors in the Grand Duchy.

The new course is one of four the university will offer from the start of the next academic year, together with bachelors degrees in engineering, physics and mathematics.

"The current health crisis has shown the importance of the medical professions, but also of science, which play a crucial role in the fight against this virus," said Romain Martin, a senior advisor at the ministry of education and research. "The four new bachelor's programs will help educate the next generation of doctors and researchers."

The group of undergraduate programmes are also being introduced to meet the need for skilled workers in other fields including data science, analytical reasoning, computer science and engineering.
