The European Commission awarded the ECTS Label to Metropolia University of Applied Sciences in December 2013. The label certifies that the higher education institution applies the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) and its quality criteria correctly in all respects.
ECTS aims at making higher education degrees and programmes comparable and securing high-quality delivery of well-designed curricula. The system is student-centered: study programmes, courses, progress of studies and gained skills and competences are described in a transparent and systematic way.
ECTS is a tool that helps to design and deliver study programmes, to evaluate and recognise students’ performance and to support greater student mobility.
The ECTS Label is a quality certificate acknowledging that the higher education institution is an open and reliable partner for European and international cooperation. The label is an honourable mention with no monetary reward.
