Default Studying In/Around Luxembourg

Okay . . . so I'm looking into my options for studying in or around Luxembourg. All my searches have come up with no results, or bad results.

My first question: is this even worth looking into since I'll be starting as a sophmore? Or do I at least need to have my bachelor's before studying abroad? Do you think I'd be able to find a college that offers the lower-level courses in English? My German's nowhere near good enough to get a good education with, and I don't think it would be even after a lot of improvement.

So is this even worth looking into?

Thanks so much for the quick response. I thought I already replied to you, oops. Sorry.

Well I went to the University of Luxembourg a few days ago and spoke with a counselor. It won't work there unless I speak French. So much for that idea.

I'm waiting on a response from the German university in Trier. My big concern is how the credits would transfer to the States. It seems that in Europe, they have a very different system. They don't get credit for individual classes, only the the degree or certificate as a whole. I don't want to stay that long, and even if I did, I can't get a straight answer on how they transfer to the States.

I just want an easy answer! One possibility is to get a part-time job working on an American base in Germany so that I can take University of Maryland classes on the bases. But AAFES (the employer that runs all the crappy part-time jobs) is known for being a horrible employer and not very reliable for work hours and such. Also, I'd have to start the day I get out of the Army, which would ruin all the travel plans I've had for the last few years. Hmmmmmmm . . . .


One more question. Does anyone know how a Masters degree from a German University would be accepted by employers in the States? My girlfriend has a Masters of Business Administration from Germany, but we're wondering how that'd work for her in the States.

Any and all ideas appreciated. Thanks!
