Metropolitan degrees are internationally recognized and accredited. The educational system in Hungary is multilevel, we follow the standards of the Bologna process and the ECTS credit system. METU is also state recognized and accredited by the Hungarian Education authority and the Hungarian Accreditation Committee.
ECTS CREDIT SYSTEM
The workload of students in higher education in Hungary is expressed in terms of ECTS credits. ECTS, the European Credit Transfer System, is the most widely known credit transfer and accumulation system in Europe.
ECTS credits are a value allocated to course units to describe the student workload required to complete them. They reflect the quantity of work each module requires in relation to the total quantity of work required to complete a full year of academic study at the institution, that is, lectures, practical work, seminars, private work - in the laboratory, library or at home - and examinations or other assessment activities.
ECTS credits are also allocated to work placements and to thesis preparation when these activities form part of the regular program of study at both the home and host institutions. ECTS credits are allocated to modules and are awarded to students who successfully complete those modules by passing the examinations or other assessments.
In ECTS, 60 credits represent one year of study (in terms of workload); normally 30 credits are given for six months (a semester). Each ECTS credit represents 28 hours of work.
EUROPASS DIPLOMA SUPPLEMENT
This Diploma Supplement model was developed by the European Commission, Council of Europe and Unesco/CEPES. The purpose of the supplement is to provide sufficient independent data to improve the international ‘transparency’ and fair academic and professional recognition of qualifications (diplomas, degrees, certificates etc.).
It is designed to provide a description of nature, level, context, content, and status of the studies that were pursued and successfully completed by the individual named on the original qualification to which this supplement is appended. It should be free from any value judgments, equivalence statements or suggestions about recognition.
Information in all eight sections should be provided. Where information is not provided, an explanation should give the reason why.taggle vége
MYBRAND - BUILD YOUR OWN BRAND!
METU is an exciting place. You can learn about yourself and about the rapidly changing world. You can gain knowledge that you can use in real life situations- even from ”the next day”. Not only will you be part of the usual, frontal education situations: you can try yourself in real-life projets, you can learn, search, present, debate, and learn with others. We encourage you to find your own path over the years you spend here. It sounds great, right?
Build your own brand consciously!
Did you know that the 10 most sought-after professions in the World did not exist 6 years ago? Do you know what the labor market is going to be like in the future?
We know we need to prepare you for a constantly changing World. We will equip you with the knowledge and skills that you can successfully adapt to the challenges of your chosen profession. Therefore, besides the professional foundations, we place the greatest emphasis on the development of your own personal brand. We encourage you to look for your own way and build your personal brand during your university years.
How does it work?
Already at the beginning of the academic year, you will meet our skills development program where you can learn a lot about yourself and the changing World around you. We teach you not to give up seeking for answers, take risks, dare to make a mistake on your way to the solution! Skill development is also supported by our educational methods, not only in the usual frontal education situations: you can try yourself in group project tasks, discussions, and research. In doing so, you will learn how to apply the acquired knowledge in practice and collaborate effectively with others.
You can also pursue creative thinking through program-specific development objects, such as Creative Writing, Creative Drawing studies, Advertising- and Media Planning and Gaming Animation. We are constantly encouraging you to implement your ideas, to which the METU Garage Program and our Creative Program provide outstanding support.
