All the following prestigious awards are important distinctions in the field of Higher Education, recognizing, the excellent performance of American College.
Diploma Supplement Label
American College is among a select number of academic institutions in Europe to receive the Diploma Supplement Label. In fact American College was the first college in Cyprus to receive this award. The label was awarded in recognition for the provision to every graduate a standardized document along with his/her certificate, diploma or degree, describing the nature, level, context, content and status of the studies that were pursued and successfully completed by the graduate. The Diploma Supplement improves international “transparency” and facilitates the academic and professional recognition, thus helping graduates to find jobs in the international labor market.
A prerequisite for the Diploma Supplement Label’s application was the adoption of the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System of Credits (ECTS). ECTS is a “learner-centered” system involving the accumulation and transfer of credits, and aims to achieve transparency of learning outcomes and learning processes. More broadly, it aims to facilitate planning, delivery, evaluation, recognition and validation of qualifications and units of learning as well as student mobility. As of 2010, the American college has implemented the ECTS. Our syllabi and curricula are fully compliant with the ECTS criteria and all transcripts, academic regulations and other documents, bare the ECTS credit indication. The implementation of ECTS, raises the profile of the institution as a transparent and reliable partner in European and international cooperation.
