The world experienced quite a bit of turmoil and uncertainty with the spread of the COVID-19 virus. While many study abroad programs were forced to close down, Miami and the John E. Dolibois European Center based in Differdange, Luxembourg did not. We were able to consistently serve our students through all of the challenges that COVID-19 and other various health and safety concerns. You can feel confident that with Miami’s unique situation, that study abroad opportunities will continue to exist despite very real challenges.

Miami's Efforts

MUDEC is unique because Miami University has run the program in Luxembourg for over 50 years, developing many close local relationships over that time. Luxembourg has given Miami students special permission to study in the country, making it more conducive to facilitating many Miami students at once. MUDEC manages the Château, only allows Miami students and guests of MUDEC to enter, and can completely control the space, making it the ideal location to study abroad.
